Having made their name with a series of Monday night residencies over the past 12 months, the group’s take on danceable, New Orleans-style jazz with a smattering of early rock’n’roll has helped the collective gain a solid following.
Lead by saxophonist Darcy McNulty and including core members Jule Pascoe (bass) and Loretta Miller (vocals), the band play a mixture of old and new covers and original material. Their debut single, ‘Rock’n’Roll Graveyard’, was written by McNulty and released independently earlier in the year.
Besides taking to the Evelyn every Monday night in January, Jazz Party will play several coveted festival slots over summer, including New Years Evie, Golden Plains XI and Castlemaine Festival. The band have also just released a brand new song; entitled Mountain Goat, it is an ode to McNulty’s favourite beer, get your stream on below.
Jazz Party will play every Monday night at The Evelyn in Melbourne. For more information head to facebook.com/secretjazzparty.
