Jessie's Swingin' New Year

Jessie Gordon returns from another 4 month European tour to her favourite swinging venue in town! Jessie is joined by the swinginest musicians around; Jon Matthews on guitar, Karl Florisson on double bass and Michael Perkins on drums. The night will be the usual combination of 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 the fabulous cocktails provided by the Ellington bar staff!

Fairly Average Dance Band: So Fresh, Still Average

Fairly Average Dance Band: So Fresh, Still Average

  • The Ellington Jazz Club (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Winners of the 2017 FRINGE WORLD Music and Musicals Award, The Fairly Average Dance Band are bringing back their favourite night of nostalgia, nonsense, and total bangers from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Think Venga Boys with added tuba, Britney with much more testosterone and Love Shack with 100% more piano accordion than you've heard it with before (unless you came to the last show, in which case it will be exactly the same, just slightly worse).

So if you, like us, have had a lifetime of questionable decision making, why not make just one more poor choice and come party with us. Expect another decidedly average evening: a ninety-minute power set of mediocre fashion, genuinely terrible dance moves and more cowbell than anyone expects or needs.
