VALE MICHAEL HOCKING

We are devastated to learn about the passing of BJC Member and Jazz Singers Jam Night stalwart Michael Hocking on 18th Öctober 2021. Michael had been regularly attending the Jazz Singers Jam Night for over a decade, and was a fixture at many vocal jazz gigs, identified by his jaunty red hat. Michael had a stroke a few months ago which had affected his ability to speak but his passing was still a shock to his loved ones. Michael was visited by his barbershop brothers and they had a last sing together. He didn't want a funeral and he donated his body to science. There was a small gathering at his house where he lived with his adopted son. Michael will be greatly missed by the Jazz Singers Jam Night and Brisbane Jazz Club communities.
