Mister Ott 9:30pm

Fronted by acclaimed saxophonist Matthew Ottignon. Inspired by an Ethiopian tour he undertook with Dereb (‘The Ambassador’) Desalegn, Ottignon’s band marries mesmerising eastern sounds and hypnotic dance grooves with groove-heavy funk.

The band’s first album ‘Drop It Like It’s Ott’—a high caliber instrumental record that crosses world music with jazz, funk and Ethiopian music—was released in April 2015 and it’s follow up ‘Single Shot’ was released late 2016 receiving many favourable reviews in the press both here in Australia and internationally.

"‘Ethiojazz’ influence as cultivated by musicians like Mulatu Astatke and Getatchew Mekurya. Infectious rhythms which range from Mulatu-esque stompers to uptempo afro-beat shakers." - Mos Eisley Blog, Germany

"The musicianship on Single Shot is utterly flawless." - BMA Magazine

"Positive, buoyant, Single Shot slides easily from Mulatu Astatke inspired Ethiopian Jazz through the relentlessly compulsive Afro-futurism of Head Hunters/Sunlight period Herbie Hancock." - Echoes and Dust (UK)

Cope St Parade 8:30pm

Sydney born and bred, The Parade does love songs like no others can. The Cope Street Parade are a high energy Australian music ensemble. They blend spicy rhythms with unique song writing that span the genres of folk, pop, gypsy and swing. With tender ballads and rollicking dance numbers they capture the spirit and warmth of early music styles and successfully blur the lines between the contemporary and the classic. Influences include Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Father John Misty and Leadbelly.

This is Australian swing music. The hot sounds of gypsy swing mixed with element of New Orleans traditional jazz meld together is a hotpot of cold beers and sunshine to create a style of music that sounds both new and old yet always uniquely Australian. Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis Armstrong in a good old country pub.

Formed in 2009, The Parade has performed at major music festivals and venues across Australia, such as the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, Sydney Festival, Bellingen Jazz Festival, Manly Jazz Festival, Jazzgroove Summer Festival. The band has also been lucky enough to collaborated with Lulo Reinhardt, Dan Barnett, Geoff Bull, Bob Henderson and Bob Barnard. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and since then they have released six studio albums to rave reviews and captivated audiences across the country.

"This is ecstasy.” - John Clare, Sydney Morning Herald
“The tenor is Fermino's instrument and he produced the romantic, rhapsodic elements and the dark, muscular drive characteristic of early Coleman Hawkins.” - Sydney Morning Herald
“It’s like Belle Epoque Paris decided - against the laws of space and time - to hold a luau in Redfern." - Max Lavergne, Triple J
“A parallel in some ways to the Hoodangers in Melbourne. Here, the Cope Street Parade presents…the sentimental, the directly emotional and the downright funny and sometimes bawdy.” - Music Trust, Loud Mouth.
