James Flynn & Friends - 'Pick Yourself Up'

Saturday 17 April 7.00pm

“I believe that music is more important at this time than any other. It can lift our spirits and take us on a journey, without the fear of flying. Over two nights, I would like to offer an escape from fear and worry with a fun alternative, music and laughter. Those of you who know me, know that I love to entertain and inject humour into my performances. Allow me to give you a little ‘Pick me up’ and come and enjoy a great night out. The evening will be a mix of classic vocal tunes from ‘The great American song book’.

Add to this the magic and versatility of some of Perth’s top jazz musicians: Adrian Galante – Piano & Clarinet, (Friday)  Russell Holmes- Piano & Simon Styles – Saxes (Saturday) with Nick Abbey on bass & Chris Tarr on drums (Both nights) and you have one helluva of a band and all the ingredients for a sensational weekend of music.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 – James Flynn
