David was in the vanguard of the Torbreck whirlwind that exploded in the 1990s, and after parting ways joined forces with his son to establish their own small operation. The Powell philosophy is that great wines are made in the vineyard and so Callum and Dave work the vineyards on their own, then pick the fruit and vinify by hand – producing unique and expressive wines from their most prized vineyards throughout the Barossa. Taste your way through stunning whites, to the iconic, bold shiraz that South Australia is so famous for. Each wine has been paired with a classically decadent dish from Mayfair Lane’s kitchen, for what is sure to be an brilliant evening, exploring the unwavering passion of this winemaking family. Tickets are $159 +BF and include 5 courses with matching Powell & Son wines. Bookings essential.

Lucky Oceans – pedal steel & vocals Lachlan Gear – acoustic guitar Aaron Deacon – acoustic guitar Adrian Galante – clarinet Pete Jeavons – double bass Formed in mid 2015, Sassafras has now established a reputation as one of Perth’s premier gypsy jazz groups. Perhaps best known for their work with the quintet version of the group (“Sassafras” – featuring vocalist Jessie Gordon), the four instrumentalists have also been steadily developing their sound as a tight-knit and energetic instrumental group: Sassafras Quartet. Joining Sassafras Quartet for this special occasion, is non other than Grammy-award-winning, world renown pedal steel player Lucky Oceans.

Expect repertoire from Django Reinhardt, Hank Williams, George Benson, Jimmy Bryant and many more. Throw in some original compositions from the band and some South American flavours as well, and you have all the ingredients for a great night of engaging and eclectic music. ” Acoustic gypsy jazz band Sassafras presented a world-class musical performance to the capacity audience that filled (the) Ellington Jazz Club…” Steve Baitz, Seesaw Mag, Jan 26th 2019
