The Grand Hotel: Parisi runs hot, Rogers to come

Last Friday, Chelly Parisi put in a stylish and confident set of jazz standards, directing the rhythm section with aplomb, and drawing a good crowd. Kip Dale and Dean Constable were also to blame. Nice.

This week, Ruby Rogers will be swinging it up in her own unique style, supported by Rene Tessmer on bass and Putna Mondrum. Ben Stewart (ukulele or something) will be soloing, and I will try not to get in his way on the piano forte. The Rogers sessions are a favourite with the locals and the  Bar staff, always different, and invariably good fun.

The Ruby Rogers Experience at The Grand Hotel, Cnr Flinders and Spencer Streets, Friday May 24th from 5.30pm
