Musicians in the band include: Joshua Isaac, drums; Dan Shaw, bass and Tim Bruer, piano / organ and Kevin Mather, multi instrumental, percussion and voice.
25 years of experience as a Sydney function band have honed the warm feel! We play modern jazz, cool jazz (warmly), modern funk and latin and blues grooves, from the 1960's and beyond, with references such as:
Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter Quartet, George Benson, Miles Davis Quintet, Wes Montgomery, The Meters, Me'Shell N'degeocello, Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen, John Scofield Quartet, Herbert Q. Hancock, Chick Corea, John Coltrane, Vince Mendoza and Blue Note's St Germain, and a whole lotta soul and blues!.
Our sets also include Jonathan's compositions in the style of Bill Evans, Pat Metheny, Duke Ellington, Fat Freddy's Drop and Wayne Krantz. World class guests in the band make for some evocative performances, hip arrangements and very cool grooves.
Leader, Jon Bolton has played as guitar player in the Australian Institute of Music Big Band, conducted by David Henry and Ralph Pyl; The Freddie Wilson Big Band and as a complementary musician, with rich history, in funk / blues and jazz contexts, over 25 years.
We would welcome the opportunity to play for you and to provide a warm, engaging and atmospheric backdrop to your function.
