Jessie Gordon is back at her favourite venue with her killer trio: Michael Perkins on drums, Karl Florisson on bass and Jon Matthews on guitar. This stellar band will be accompanying Jessie as she sings and presents her Vocal Jazz Performance Students who have been working hard for four weeks to put their most swingin’ foot forward and perform (some for the very first time)!
Expect to hear some beautiful ballads, some thrilling upbeat swing, and one or two original songs from Jessie.
Grammy award winning Lucky Oceans and FRINGE WORLD veteran Jessie Gordon present a night of exuberant Western Swing with a dash of sorrow.

This brand new musical collaboration brings you the best juke joint blues this side of the 129th meridian.
Jessie Gordon and Lachlan Gear have been playing swinging tunes together for five years in various Perth bands and are delighted to come together in this stripped down duo to present some of their favourite songs! Their time in the award winning ‘Sassafras’ has helped to hone their gypsy swing sound, and their travel and touring time has informed their extensive jazz and blues repertoire. They can be found performing all around town, with a freshly minted 2019 Fringe World Weekly Music Award under their belts and a cheeky grin on their faces.
Jessie has five CDs to her name, including a 2018 release of her own original music titled A Work of Friction. For this night at her favourite Perth live music venue, she’s bringing the CD to life with a full 9 piece band and presenting a whole set of new material (some taken from her latest recording ‘Best Friends’ with Mark Turner).
