Here is some information about a couple of Sweet Ade forthcoming gigs:
Farouk’s Olive, 711 High St., Thornbury on Saturday, November 8 from 6 – 8 pm. Admission $7/$5. Amazing olives, bar snacks, quirky beverages. Later in the evening, you can hear Cheap Frills, a mainstream jazz band featuring vocalist Jazz Stutley, playing sassy tunes for jazz lovers. www.farouksolive.com
Caulfield Park Bandstand, Sunday, February 1, 2015 from 2-3 pm, followed for the second hour by another jazz band. Bring a picnic if you like. Free art activities for kids.
Sweet Ade plays trad jazz with a difference: an eclectic repertoire including jazz standards and Australian jazz, a 7 piece line-up featuring recorders, reeds, vocals, piano, banjo, drums, washboard, piano accordion, ukeleles, sousaphone, and lots of fun.
And while I have your attention, I highly recommend the movie Whiplash for all jazz musicians.
Cheers and thanks,
