Description

French composers have always featured prominently in Sassafras’s repertoire, but for this special show the band will present an entire programme of French music. Featuring songs from artists/composers such as Edith Piaf, Yves Montand and Charles Trenet you can expect to hear classics such as “La Vie En Rose”, “A Bicyclette” and “Que Reste t’il De Nos Amours” alongside some lesser known gems penned by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Jaques Brel, Django Reinhardt and more. Covering ballads, waltz’s and of course a healthy dose of gypsy swing, this is a night not to be missed for all music lovers and francophiles alike. Formed in mid 2015, Sassafras has now established a reputation as one of Perth’s premier gypsy jazz groups. Featuring vocalist Jessie Gordon, Lachlan Gear and Aaron Deacon (guitars), Adrian Galante (clarinet) and Pete Jeavons (double bass), the band has sold out numerous shows at the Ellington Jazz Club, The Duke of George, Lyric’s Underground, Kidogo Arthouse, The Stirling Arms, The Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre and more.
