Dust off your wingtip shoes, get those flapper dresses out and take a step back to the roaring twenties with The Gatsby Winter Soirée.

Astor Productions cordially invites you to a ritzy night of hot jazz and chilled champagne. All welcome, from Flappers to Fly Boys, Dames to Dapper Dans and everyone in between.

Hosted by the suave Shane Savage (of Chris and Josh, Big Al and Playing Rock Hudson fame) and featuring the finest in Melbourne big band music, classic cars, market stalls, vintage photo booth and swing dancing performances The Gatsby Winter Soirée is a vintage extravaganza not to be missed!

Welcoming you into the soirée will be the Horns Of Leroy brass band, the newest and funkiest brass band in Melbourne. Playing a mixture of traditional New Orleans brass band music and modern funk/soul repertoire, this band will have you dancing before you even set foot in the venue!

Continuing the entertainment will be Shirazz, a six-piece Melbourne trad jazz and dixieland band, specialising in classic hot jazz of the 20s and 30s. With hot solos, driving rhythms and tight arrangements, a set from Shirazz is a step back in time to a jumping New Orleans dance hall where fast, hot tunes intersect with swinging standards and laid-back Louisiana street beats. Shirazz should be enjoyed irresponsibly, and in excess.

Keeping that dancefloor hot late into the night will be The Cairo Club Orchestra, a vintage dance orchestra comprising of ten specialist musicians dedicated to the faithful interpretation of the hot and sweet sounds of the 1920's, 30's and 40's. Let The Cairo Club Orchestra take you back to a time where radio is supreme, television is still a distant dream and crooners begin to rule the ether.

So join us for a drink, experience the oppulence and grandeur of Malvern Town Hall and help us welcome Winter in style with the hottest jazz Melbourne has to offer.

Dress to impress, swanky and spiffy. Think The Great Gatsby and Boardwalk Empire.
