ZETLAND: Autumn is promising a much better run of mild, rain free nights, which makes it perfect to enjoy some great jazz and blues in the unique indoor/outdoor ambience of Ruby’s Music Club in Zetland.
This Friday, March 25, features the funky trad grooves of Cope Street Parade as part of the Great Southern Nights program. From then on, every two weeks there’s a further outstanding line-up of talented young musicians and some established names itching to perform to an enthusiastic crowd.
SIMA, which has organised the Ruby’s Autumn Socials program with 107 Projects, describes Cope Street Parade as Australian swing music, at its finest. “Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis Armstrong in an outback country pub.”
Samuel Dobson (Double Bass and Voice), Justin Fermino (Saxophones and Voice), Aaron Flower (Guitar and Voice) and Ben Panucci (Guitar and Voice) offer “the hot sounds of gypsy swing mixed with an element of New Orleans traditional jazz fuse together in a melting pot of cold beers and beachy vibes,” it adds.
On Friday April 8 Ruby’s features the double bill: Abbey, Andrew and Also Arty with the Greasy Chicken Trio, and on Friday April 22 Green Thumbs offers “blues and groove with a healthy dose of modern jazz”.
