THE COPE ST PARADE
“This is ecstasy.” – John Clare (SMH)
A bit of old, a bit of new. You’ll sure to be dancing when the Parade rolls through.
Based in sydney and playing in a traditional jazz style this band blurs the line between the contemporary and the classic. Embracing such influences as Louis Armstrong, Geoff Bull, Fats Waller and Django Rienhardt they create there own style of australian swing music.
The group has been playing together since early 2009. Since it’s creation they have performed at many high profile music festivals such as the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, Manly Jazz Festival and the inaugural Jazzgroove Futures Festival and has played with such luminaries as Geoff Bull and Bob Barnard.
