Joyology is a a feel-good melody-focused Jazz duo that features Derry based

musicians Meilana Gillard on Voice and Tenor Saxophone and John

Leighton on Piano. Formed in 2022, Joyology began when these two decade-long

collaborators decided to join the organisation ‘Live Music Now’ where they

would go on to perform and work with participants at both special schools,

regular schools and care homes in Northern Ireland bringing a taste of Jazz and

their own unique brand of fun with them.

Their repertoire includes Jazz Standards and Soul/R&B classics as well as

some Latin rhythms. Will perform double-duties on both voice and tenor


Meilana Gillard is a saxophonist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and

composer who is part of the RBG Trio, The Funktects, Meilana Vocal Quartet

and The House of Jade Quintet-the last three of which John is also a member.

John Leighton is pianist and composer and runs one of the most beloved

small music venues for Jazz, Rock, Alternative, Folk, and Comedy on the aisle;

Bennigan’s Jazz Club in Derry. 2024 marks 10 years that Bennigan has hosted

some of the best Jazz artists in the world from UK, EU, and USA.
