Late nights, flickering neon and beer fueled dance freak-outs over a gravely wailing saxophone - think New Orleans meets Twin Peaks. This is Jazz Party - led by former saxophonist and songwriter of Clairy Browne & The Bangin Rackettes, DARCY McNULTY.
An eight-piece powerhouse with a punk attitude, furious drums, soaring vocal harmonies and horns, Jazz Party features supreme diva LORETTA MILLER out front as well as bassist and cult hero JULES PASCOE and pianist extraordinaire GIDEON PREISS.
Rebellious pleasure seekers and connoisseurs, Jazz Party combine New Orleans styled revelry with a punk attitude. With eclectic influences from Fats Waller to Hanni El Khatib, Prince to Patsy Cline and David Lynch to Robert Rodriguez, Jazz Party deliver jump blues, RnB and forgotten Jazz music with fervor.
Jazz Party have just released a new EP, 'Hearts Gonna Leave', the catchy third single from their new album Nobody Gets Away. LISTEN HERE The song is a soupy minor JP blues banger that feels like Glam Rock meets Howling Wolf, with a brilliant horn breakdown arranged by Lachlan Mitchel. It starts with a little musing from the backing vocals and quickly launches into a hypnotic groove that Loretta Miller’s vocals ride over with beautiful dynamics, ranging from a gospel shout to a husky whisper.
Doors Open @ 8pm
Showtime @ 8.30pm
