South Coast groovemeisters The Escalators are on a musical mission with a simple mantra: Come Together!
Tintenbar Up Front at Tintenbar Hall is the perfect venue for doing just that on Saturday September 17.
“This tour is all about connection,” says guitarist Lachlan Mackenzie. “We carefully selected venues whose philosophy we respect, because they enrich their communities through art & culture.”
“Places like Tintenbar Up Front are the future of live music,” says Lachlan. “We are returning to an old-fashioned idea of great music in community spaces. We see people reconnect with the magic of live music because it is intimate & it is a shared experience. And that elevates our performance to new heights.”
With more grooves than a record store, The Escalators tip their fedoras to the sophistication of Swing, the funk of New Orleans, & the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica. The Escalators excel atcross-pollinating great jazz standards with groove-driven genres, and grafting original compositions onto their swing, soul & reggae roots.
The Escalators have two studio releases ‘Felix’ (2014) & ‘From The Hip’ (2016) which you can stream right from their website. The success of these 2 CDs has inspired extensive East Coast travels, earned prestigious invitations to Noosa Jazz & Manly Jazz Festivals, & a #1 song on Triple J Unearthed!
After hundreds of shows together, The Escalators can hold listeners spell-bound in a ‘hear-a-pin-drop’ concert, or have the floorboards of a School of Arts Hall heaving under the weight of unhinged dancing.
The gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden's voice will embrace you & steal your heart. Lachlan Mackenzie’s guitar weaves with pick-pocket grace through a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parson's upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore
Tintenbar Up Front is a monthlyevening of performance at Tintenbar Hall, organised by volunteers who put their passion into practice, creating a music venue much loved by Australian & international touring artists.
“Tintenbar Up Front is perfect for artist & audience,” says singer Jenny Blunden. “Sharing music with people who have come together, heart & mind, makes it more meaningful & rewarding for everyone.”
“On this tour we are consciously supporting the venues that we want to see more of, and we can’t wait to meet the music lovers of Tintenbar & surrounds.”
Tickets to this intimate show are strictly limited so music fans will need to book early at Sticky Tickets online.
