About this event

Grammy award winning legend Lucky Oceans and FRINGE WORLD veteran Jessie Gordon bring you a night of joyful, exuberant Western Swing with a dash of soul searching sorrow. Born in the heart of Texas, burnished in the heat of Australia's own West, this music is the nexus where country meets hot jazz, fuelled by the driving rhythm of Karl Florisson on double bass and an energetic, chaotic approach to melody and harmony with Lucky and virtuoso Jon Matthews on guitars. Joining the boys in paying tribute to the likes of Bob Wills and Spade Cooley, Jessie sings and plays the ukulele with reckless abandon, the four-piece band rolling like a steam train through the quiet Perth night!

  • "This is a foot stamping, hand clapping, hooting and hollering show that exemplifies the best of Western Swing and in Jessie, Lucky and the band we found the perfect exponents." - FringeFeed
