JUST look at this poster! Baz Luhrman’s “The Great Gatsby” has made the Jazz Age trendy, cool, hip, whatever but our musicians have been doing it for years. The Gatsby Swing Soiree at the Malvern Town Hall on 25 August will feature three special bands – the recent joint Mike McQuaid/Leigh Barker venture, Mike’s Retro Five; the suave Andrew Nolte and his Orchestra, and the rousing Crescent City band, Barry Wratten’s Pelican Brass Band. And all on the one playbill.
Doors open at 8.00pm. Book here.
Andrew Nolte has built his professional career on the music and style of the Jazz Age, not only with his Orchestra and its 1920s/30s repertoire, but also with his own Gatsby-era elegance.
You have the chance to enjoy Andrew and his Orchestra at several other gigs during August.
They’ll be at The Spotted Mallard, 314 Sydney Road, Brunswick (near the Brunswick Town Hall) on Sundays 11, 18,and 25 August from 4.00pm – 7.00pm.
And at The Pinnacle, 251 St Georges Road, Fitzroy North on Saturday 31 August, also from 4.00pm – 7.00pm.
