RARE GROOVE MONDAY @ Foundry616 - $5 Entry
Following their sensational debut at the club last month (were you there!?) The Greasy Chicken Orchestra returns to thrill and delight those who dare to groove on a Monday night....
The GCO is a jazz outfit in the "Territory Band" tradition of Kansas City, Chicago and New Orleans jazz of the '20s and '30s.
The band is led by Phillip Johnston, an American saxophonist/ composer who lives in Sydney, while still maintaining a musical life in his hometown of New York City. Leading his own bands as well as performing with others, his work as a composer and musician extends across theatre, dance, film and music.
The Greasy Chickens Orchestra repertoire includes classic New Orleans jazz, mixed with early Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton. Tunes will include South Rampart Street Parade, Muskrat Ramble, and Grandpa's Spells.
Featuring many of Sydney's great jazz musicians, this will be a night of swinging sounds!
Phillip Johnston: soprano sax
