Gypsy Jazz Twilight Cruise with Sassafras - Saturday the 25th March 2017

The Decoy Crew welcome the very chic and sassy Sassafras. Sassafras were formed in mid 2015 and quickly established a reputation as one of Perth’s premier gypsy jazz groups. Fronted by vocalist Jessie Gordon and also featuring Lachlan Gear and Aaron Deacon (guitars), Adrian Galante (clarinet) and Pete Jeavons (doublebass), the members of Sassafras are all widely experienced and well known to Perth audiences through their work with various groups such as Belleville, The Darling Buds of May and Vipers Dream to name just a few. Featuring music from composers such as Django Reinhardt (of course!), Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Edith Piaf and Birelli Lagrene, Sassafras combines toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy jazz, wistful french ballads and re-worked jazz standards in a vibrant and engaging mix of acoustic music, all performed with the dazzling virtuosity and passion that is so intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition.
