Description

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. Lucky’s pedal steel, and voice, brings western swing & country sounds to the party which are the perfect foil for the gypsy jazz of Sassafras Quartet. 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
