About Manor Road

Manor Road was created by professional musicians Chris and Katie Jackson. Named after the street of their first home together, Chris and Katie have a combined 40 years in the music industry playing in bands, performing on stage, working in studios, and travelling the world. You can be rest-assured that you are hiring experienced, trained and versatile musicians who are ready to handle any hurdle with a smile.



Katie has received critical acclaim for her world-class vocal ability and dynamic stage presence, most notably as one of Ricky Martin’s favorites on The Voice Australia. She is an accomplished entertainer with thousands of performances under her belt. Some highlights include headlining major international events, singing at hundreds of weddings, events and festivals performing on television, in theatre and at world famous venues, touring in cabaret, musicals and on cruise ships, recording and performing original music, and hosting live events.  Her vocal flexibility and charismatic personality enable her to switch easily between genres and her quick wit and warm demeanor make her a crowd favorite! Katie is highly trained with multiple degrees in music, public speaking and acting, so you can expect the highest quality. Her extensive repertoire includes classic rock, soul, RnB, jazz and current popular tunes and she loves learning your favorite songs or writing you a new one!



Chris considers himself a jack of all trades and has been playing music his whole life. He is a multi instrumentalists, having studied piano, drums, guitar, trumpet and voice. Chris studied both music and audio at university, quickly embarking on a career as an audio engineer working both in studio recordings and live sound, but he never stopped taking to the stage. Chris has played with originals and covers bands, touring Australia and overseas and working as DJ at multiple events. After meeting Katie and settling down in Adelaide, Chris is excited to focus his love for music (and for his wife) to make other's special days memorable and hassle free. Happy to take on any request Chris is the ultimate facilitator for whatever a gig requires.
