Acclaimed gypsy jazz group 'Sassafras' make their Kalamunda debut on Sunday October 25th. Featuring Jessie Gordon (voice), Aaron Deacon & Lachlan Gear (acoustic guitars), Adrian Galante (clarinet) and Pete Jeavons (bass) Sassafras combines toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy classics, wistful french ballads and re-worked jazz standards in a vibrant and engaging mix of acoustic music, all performed with the dazzling virtuosity and passion that is intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition.
Featuring music from composers such as Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Cole Porter, Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Brel (to name only a few), Sassafras has sold out numerous shows at the Ellington Jazz Club as well as other venues such Lazy Susan's Comedy Den, Kidogo Arthouse, The Duke of George, The Paddlesteamer Decoy, Malt Supper Club and more.
Sassafras has a strong connection with Perth's eastern suburbs as all-but-one of the groups regular members grew up in the Perth hills. Having already performed sold out shows at Juniper Studio (Darlington), The Stirling Arms (Guildford) and The Mundaring Weir Hotel, Sassafras are very happy to finally make their Kalamunda-debut at the Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre. Doors open 12.30pm, Concert begins at 1pm.
