Joanna Funk

music, gardening and my dog

Chookas! It’s an Aussie word!

Chookas! This is what Aussies say to each other before a performance, instead of: “Break a leg”.

I don’t know what it means but they said it before “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do”, and before the QMF Under This Sky performances. For sure we will be yelling it from the rafters at the opening of DUSTY THE ORIGINAL POP DIVA which is this Friday!

About Joanna

Joanna is British Australian. Her early career was in financial news in London. That ended in 2008. Joanna moved to Sabah, her parents’ birthplace, where she wrote a blog about musicians, which became a book. Joanna came to Australia in 2012 and started this blog — her second. These days, she writes mostly about music, her garden, and trips to Sabah. Oh, and Wookie the Havanese.
