On Sunday 10th April we're looking forward to joining forces with two other Sydney gypsy jazz bands at the Camelot Lounge in Marrickville for a feast of gypsy sounds. This is the line up, should be a big night, hope to see you there!
Opening the night will be outstanding Gypsy Blues duo, DOG ON HOLIDAY, recreating the hand clapping, toe stomping rhythms of Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, Tony Joe White, Big Bill Broonzy, Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Jimi Hendrix, JJ Cale, Tom Waits and featuring Ken Granneman’s hauntingly beautiful original songs as well.
Second up comes gypsy swing band, The Squeezebox Trio, Rumbling out of Sydney’s West armed with a thirty year old accordion, a left handed violin and acoustic guitar the group will get you up and swinging with their energetic performances of gypsy jazz classics their own arrangements of Balkan tunes, Russian war songs, Jazz Standards and the occasional Disney film classic.
Powering on home it'll be the 6 piece version of Chasing the Moon with vocals/violin, saxophone/flute, guitar, piano accordion, double bass and drums delivering an exuberant and romantic take on the classic gypsy jazz repertoire of Hot Club fame with an energy and passion that's reminiscent of the great jazz of days gone by, mixing hot club with the blues, folk and Latin rhythms, lashings of swing and modern elements too.
