BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

The First One

Friday 20th December 2019

Time: 8:00 – 10:00 pm

 


 A great way to celebrate the upcoming holidays  Some two decades ago a trio of Rosa – Horbelt – Sedergreen became the last bastion of live music in Carlton’s famous Lygon Street Strip. They played outside the restaurant Il Primo literally translated as The First One. And recorded a CD of the same title mixing contemporary jazz classics with show tunes. 

 

They have somehow stuck together both musically and as friends despite their busy schedules. We invite you to share the joy and empathy at this rare performance of this most cohesive ensemble. Maybe pick up their CD as a great Xmas present!!!
