Wyvern Big Band makes it’s way back to Perth’s home of jazz, The Ellington Jazz Club, for an intimate night as they take you on a journey through jazz history. Wyvern are a 17-piece Big Band formed in 1996 by the late and great Neville Bird, who wanted to bring many Ex-Wesleyans together to play some jazz. 28 years on, the band are still kicking, Neville’s legacy is as strong as ever. 

This night will be a special night for the band as they farewell two significant members of the group, leader trumpeter Ben Moody (lead trumpet) and Musical Director Jonathan Maltman. 

Ben has been playing jazz since he was the size of a trumpet and has been rehearsing with Wyvern for the majority of its existence since his father Harry bought him along to a rehearsal one Sunday. 

Jonathan has been Wyvern’s Musical Director for the past 11 and a half years, and has enjoyed every second of leading the band. 

Wyvern is sad to see Ben and Jonathan move on from the band, but wishes them both the best in their future endeavors. The band will be performing an array of charts for jazz-heads new or experienced, such as “In the Mood”, “Mack the Knife”, as well as the “Theme from Family Guy” and a Jazz rendition of Van Halen’s “Jump” and some other funs surprises!

So let’s not waste any time shall well? It just feels right…good food, good booze … and great music! 

You know how it’s gonna go. Let’s have some fun! Book your tickets NOW because this WILL sell out. 

See you at the show.
