South Coast groovemeisters The Escalators are on a musical mission with a simple mantra: Come Together!
Nest Cinema Cafe in Tumbarumba is the perfect venue for doing just that on Saturday October 15.
“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 Nest are the future of live music,” says Lachlan. “We are returning to an old-fashioned idea of great music in community spaces. We see the spark when people reconnect with the magic of live music as an intimate, 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.
Nest is both a magnet for food lovers, and a haven for those who crave creative culture. Guests can dine at Nest before the show (bookings recommended), or arrive for a 7.30pm start, with canapés at intermission.
“The performance space at Nest is perfect for artist & audience,” says singer Jenny Blunden. “Sharing music with people who have come together, heart & mind, in a space curated with love. That is a magic recipe!”
“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 Tumbarumba & beyond.”
Tickets to this intimate show are strictly limited so music fans will need to book early.
