Product Description

Foundry616 welcomes back the feelgood, funk and groove of one of our most popular jazz music residencies – Organ Transplant – which continues it’s weekly Monday night gigs throughout Winter, since kicking off at the club last August.

“What could be a better way to spend a Monday evening than listening to largely blues-based jazz, inhabiting that red-light zone where swing grooves and shuffles exchange bodily fluids?

Add the twin facts that Muller remains one of the world’s most exciting guitarists, able to unleash steams of incendiary tracer fire, and that there has never been a better context in which to enjoy Theak’s brawny, testifying tenor saxophone, and you have the sort of night in which audiences are inclined to whoop and holler in response to genuinely hair-raising solos”.

John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald, Dec 2016


Stalwarts of the Australian Jazz scene, James Muller and David Theak are back with their good-time band designed to warm Sydney hearts on the coldest night of the week, Monday.

Featuring the ‘once young’ Theak on tenor saxophone, a ‘young-ish’ Muller on guitar, a ‘younger’ Steve Barry on organ and a genuinely young drummer Alex Hirlian, this multi-generational band led by Theak aims to give Sydney a truly positive start to their working week.

The sole aim of this gig is for music lovers to have a couple of post Monday drinks, catching up with their friends, talking, laughing, heckling and downright enjoying themselves at informal jazz gig at one of Sydney’s best music venues, Foundry 616. The music will swing, groove, shuffle and feel as good as we can make it feel while still offering listeners the creative energy that these incredible four musicians are renowned for.

Repertoire will be drawn from the standard song book and jazz legends such as John Schofield, Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Smith and anyone else that writes a song that we reckon will get your toes tapping.

David Theak – tenor saxophone & bandleader
James Muller – guitar
Steve Barry – hammond organ
Alex Hirlian – drums and cymbals
