For those who might have been intrigued by my recorder playing at the occasional jam, you might want to check out my band, Sweet Ade. We’ll be at Open Studio, 204 High St., Northcote on Sunday, June 23, from 12.30-2.30 pm.
The venue has a bar and serves excellent pancakes. Entry $8/10.
For those of you who haven’t heard the band, it’s a refreshingly different, 6 piece multi-instrumental jazz band, playing an entertaining, eclectic repertoire. It features a unique line-up of recorders, saxophones, clarinet, piano, washboard, drums, sousaphone, ukuleles, harmonica and vocals. The musicians will be: Marion Lustig (recorders), Janet Arndt (vocals), Peter Mason (reeds, ukelele, vocals, harmonica), Ken Cowan (special guest on piano), Joe Kenyon (sousaphone) and Richard Opat (washboard, drums).
It would be great to see some of you there!
