Sweet Ade at The Rosstown Sun 14th Oct

Sweet Ade has a gig at the Rosstown Hotel, on Sunday afternoon, October 14 from 1.30 – 4.30 pm.
The address is 1084 Dandenong Rd., Carnegie and phone number 95711033.

The band is inspired by, but not limited to, Ade Monsborough’s music for recorder. We include selections from his “Recorder In Ragtime”, his settings of Henry Lawson poetry and his other compositions, as well as other Australian material and a few jazz standards. The genre is mainly trad/ragtime but with an unusual line-up and interesting material which isn’t played much – mostly light-hearted, fun and a bit quirky.

The musicians for the afternoon will be: Marion Lustig (recorders), Peter Mason (reeds), Lisette Payet (piano), Andrew Stephens (banjo), Joe Kenyon (sousaphone), Janet Arndt (vocals) and Howard Rowe as our guest on washboard and drums.

Bistro lunch is available from 12 noon and bookings are highly recommended. Cheers, Marion


  1. Ade was a great jazz reed player who, in his mature stages, played, and made, recorders. Also made interesting music themed ear rings etc. He also drove an unusual vintage car with a Holden 6 cylinder engine. Great guy, looking forward to hearing him again.


  2. No chance of hearing Ade again … unless you mean Sweet Ade’s version. He has passed on to the great jazz jam in the sky.
