Sassafras at Juniper Studio #2
December 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Trish Juniper hosts another evening of delicious musical entertainment on Saturday December 9th with a follow-up performance from gypsy jazz group ‘Sassafras’ in the beautiful Juniper Studio.
Formed in mid 2015, Sassafras has quickly established a reputation as Perth’s premier gypsy jazz group. Fronted by vocalist Jessie Gordon and also featuring Lachlan Gear and Aaron Deacon (guitars), Adrian Galante (clarinet) and Pete Jeavons (doublebass), the members of Sassafras are all widely experienced professional musicians. The band also has a strong connection to the perth hills as Jessie, Pete, Lachlan and Aaron all grew up in the area.
Featuring music from composers such as Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Michel Legrand and Birelli Lagrene, Sassafras combines toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy jazz, 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 so intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition. Sassafras has sold out numerous gigs at the Ellington Jazz Club, Malt Supper Club, Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den and the Paddlesteamer Decoy, and the band garnered rave reviews for “An Evening in Paris” a show that featured in both the 2016 and 2017 Perth Fringeworld Festivals.
Doors open at 6.30pm with performance starting at 7.00pm. This is a BYO event with nibbles being provided by Trish. Tickets are $32 and available on https://www.trybooking.com/STVD but they are limited so do book early. Parking on Dalry Road is advised.
