Wow I just realised it’s a leap year this year, well what a great way to spend that extra day (Feb 29th)? Spend it in the company of a musical trio…
So what are they about?
“Do you miss nylons and swing? Do you feel even nostalgia just isn’t what it used to be? Wish you could still smoke in planes? The Hummingbirds are here to help! Join this fresh new collective as they take you up, up and away into the sunny skies of yesteryear. With songs spanning the boogie woogie era to 90s girl power, this is a whimsical, comical and musical look at love at 40,000 feet, with your charming hostesses, the Hummingbirds. Come fly with us!”
Check out their The Hummingbirds Facebook page for more info and some random funny posts! :D

has long been a favourite actress of mine since seeing her in The Tribe as Ellie [aswell as being in the Enid Blyton TV series]. So, imagine my excitement at seeing something new featuring Jennyfer Jewell!
In the short film The Visitor, Jennyfer plays the role of a mother, whos daughter is being visited by an imaginary friend… In comes a priest for an exorcism… Check it out:
I am totally loving the long hair! The short film was submitted for the V 48HOURS short film festival in New Zealand, though the video is the rough cut. The film was filmed the weekend of 16-18th April 2010. I do think she is still too young for a mother role – I guess she’d make a good M.I.L.F/’yummy mummy’ perhaps? But anyhows, I do hope to see more of Jen Jewell in the future, whether it’s Jennifer Jewell or Jennyfer ;)
The Visitor was directed by Tomoko Uryu. Featuring: Te Ao O Awhero Little as Whetu, Jennifer Jewell as Mother, Angeline Quick as Sydney Mason and Andre Munroe as the priest.
The last lot of Ella Wilks’ photos from The Tribe cast reunion went up last night, click here to check them all out, the newer ones are at the bottom of the page. The new pics feature Ashwath Sundarasen (Dal), Ella (Danni), Sarah Major (Patsy), Dwayne Cameron (Bray), Antonia Prebble (Trudy), Nick Miller (Pride), Jennyfer Jewell (Ellie), Michael Wesley Smith (Jack) and Beth Allen (Amber).
The pics of Ella, Victoria and Antonia are great. Also check out the funny one with Antonia’s ‘bunny ears’ as well as the candid one featuring MWS, Beth Allen and others. I think they were taken towards the end of the evening as they have their coats on, I’m not certain though…
10 more photos are up in the 10 year anniversary gallery. Check ‘em out!
- You’ll have to scroll down the gallery page to get the new ones.
The new pics feature Jennyfer Jewell (Ellie in The Tribe), Ari Boyland (KC), Victoria Spence (Salene) and of course Ella Wilks (Danni) who gave her permish for the pictures to be up on the site. The pics of Ari Boyland and Ella are well cute!
Jennyfer Jewell (The Tribe’s Ellie) recently featured in a stage production called Applaudience at Otago University, between 6-7 March 2008.
Applaudience was written by Sam Smith and; directed by Ben Blakely. A review of it can be found here (also pasted below).
The productions blurb was as follows: “Have you ever wondered what your parents do when they come to your ballet recitals, your sports prizegivings, your crunk classes? They’re not there because they love you, far from it. In fact they wish you were never born”.
