Description

Sassafras combines toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy classics, wistful french ballads and re-worked jazz standards in a vibrant and engaging mix of acoustic music, all performed with the dazzling virtuosity and passion that is intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition. The band features Jessie Gordon (voice), Aaron Deacon & Lachlan Gear (acoustic guitars), Adrian Galante (clarinet) and Pete Jeavons (bass), and they have 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.
