Friday 8th December 2017

Time: 7:00 pm



With her sweetly sophisticated singing, Annemarie bravely leads a collection of Melbourne’s premier Jazz and Roots misfits: Bob Sedergreen – keyboards and shiraz, Dale Lindrea – tenor guitar and beats, Christophe “He’s French” Geneoux – reeds and mouth percussion.

Taking a well-worn Bossa Nova book lavished with 60s ballads and a happy handful of cabaret pizzazz, this delightful quartet is far from a typical Melbourne Jazz experience....

Featuring Axle Whitehead

Friday 15th December 2017

Time: 9:30 pm



Jazz piano legend Bob Sedergreen first met Axle Whitehead at the VCA in ‘99. Impressed by Axle’s natural approach to improvisation and his love of risk taking, Bob decided to mentor him, both playing gigs in various venues around Melbourne.


Shortly after this Axle formed a band with trail blazing Sedergreen brothers, Steve and Mal, of Mistaken Identity who performed locally and interstate


Some years later Axle moved to Sydney to pursue a TV career.  These days Axle is in Los Angeles, picking up various acting TV shows and playing gigs at LA’s famous House of Blues.


Axle is returning to Oz to pick up where he left off and getting back to his roots of Jazz and Improvisation.

He will be reunited with his old sparring partner the explosive Mal Sedergreen on saxophone


For this one off special gig ,Kim May on bass & Darryn Farrugia on drums who have established themselves as prominent figures on the Melbourne scene, will join him


Guaranteed to be a night of laughs and musical risk taking!!
