Songbirds of the Southwest
Thursday 17 January 7.00pm
Songbirds of the South West combines the beauty of harmony from 6 vocalists with the tight rhythm and HOT horn section of the 8 piece band, to pay tribute to some of the jazz greats.
All members are professional working musicians from the Southwest WA. Stretching from Dunsborough to Denmark. An idea sparked by saxophone player and local doctor Louise Marsh. Their performance at The Jazz by the Bay Festival was such a success they decided to keep performing and hit the big smoke – Perth.
