THE Peninsula Rhythm Kings is a relatively new band – a bit more than two years together – but the members are all musicians of experience and reputation with a long line of other groups played with currently, or in the past.
Here we have Frank Stewart on clarinet, Lee Treanor on banjo, Kay Younger (vocals), John Roberts on trumpet, Peter Grey on bass, Graeme Davies on trombone, and in the front, leader John Kent on drums. Their repertoire is trad. with a bit of swing and Billie Holiday from Kay.
This well-credentialed band will be playing at the Rosstown Hotel, cnr. Koornang Road and Princes Highway, Carnegie on Sunday 30 October from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
Another fund raiser: this time for the Victorian Jazz Archive. (They keep cropping up, and rightly so. A splendid organisation which is well worth a visit in person, or if that’s not possible, via their website or monthly newsletter).
There’s a cover charge of $10 if you’re a member of the Archive, $15 if you’re not.
The bistro opens at 12 noon for lunch. BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL on 9571 1033.
On a recent visit to the Rosstown we saw this noble beast parked outside. It’s that sort of place.!
STOP PRESS: The Peninsula Rhythm Kings will also be playing at the Moe Jazz Club on Friday 21 October. They will be without Frank and Kay, but will include John Kelly as guest clarinetist.
