Jessie Gordon: Swinging into 2022!
Join award winning Perth chanteuse Jessie Gordon for a night of swinging tunes, shining wit and sparkling wine. Get dressed to impress and expect to hear some of the best jazz and blues songs from the last century including the music of Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.
Jessie Gordon is Master of Ceremonies for the night, fresh off the plane from nowhere, and she’s bringing her favourite songs to her favourite venue in town! Jessie is joined as usual by the swinginest musicians around; Jon Matthews on guitar, Karl Florisson on double bass and Michael Perkins on drums.
The night will be a whirlwind combination of 20s swing tunes, blues songs, a sojourn into the realm of new original music, a light smattering of storytelling and a hefty dollop of inappropriate humour, lubricated as always by fabulous cocktails provided by the Ellington bar staff!
