One of the UK's leading jazz a cappella groups, the Oxford Gargoyles are embarking on their debut Hong Kong-Macau tour this March. They're known for their black-tie charm and their impeccable jazz numbers, as well as the occasional pop rendition—although without all the drama of "Glee." You can catch them in the myriad locations throughout Hong Kong until April, including the HK City Hall (Mar 24), Fringe Club (Mar 26, 28-29), Grappa's Cellar (Mar 23), Backstage Live (Mar 21), and even at the Rugby Sevens.

Quah will be performing accompanied by HKAPA lecturer Timmy Tsang on the piano.

Québécoise crooner Chantal Chamberland dropped her sultry new album "Soirée" in August and she's showing it off in Hong Kong this October. Chamberland originally started off as a rock musician before moving on to folk rock—but it was when she started to sing classic jazz tunes that she really found her true calling. If only Bono felt the same.

The all-singing, all-strumming eight-piece uke superstars from Britain are coming to Hong Kong for the very first time, bringing with them a long list of audience favorites from movie songs to pop to rock-and-roll to jazz. Started all the way back in 1985, you can expect anything from a uke version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to Lady Gaga pop or Adele's crooning.
