Moreland City Big Band plays Brunswick Bowls Club,
104-106 Victoria Street. Brunswick East, 3pm to 5pm,
Sunday, November 25, 2012
The Moreland City Big Band‘s Phoenix Project is back by popular demand at the Brunswick Bowling Club this Sunday, November 25. The 20-piece plus big band is led by jazz trumpeter Scott Tinkler, just back from performances in India.
The band plays a mix of original material and re-arranged standards with a jazz and funk leaning. It features incendiary solos from some of its musicians including Tinkler. Saxophonist Andra Jackson says it could be the band’s last performance for the year, so make sure you don’t miss out. Yet again…
Admission is free. The Brunswick Bowling Club was one of the settings for the ABC feature film Jack Irish. Come and check out its relaxed atmosphere with bar prices, an opportunity to try barefoot bowling or sample food from the Cajun kitchen. Children friendly. The band plays from 3 to 5pm. The Brunswick Bowling Club is on the corner of Cross and Victoria streets.
Moreland City Band rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:30pm at 21 Phoenix St Brunswick. New members and visitors are welcome and the band is particularly in need of lower brass.
