30 May Wednesday – The John Harkins Quartet
$12.00 – $35.00
Wednesday 30 May, 2018, 8.30pm
Trumpeter Cam McAllister, who speaks the jazz vocabulary with elegance and authority, is the special guest for this performance. Drummer Dave Goodman is that rare breed of drummer, one that can swing, float and support. Perhaps that’s why he has been the go to guy for legendary players such as Mike Nock, Warwick Alder and Dale Barlow.
Speaking of legends, Australia’s premier Bass player Lloyd Swanton will be anchoring the band – a role he is quite used to as the founding member of The Catholics and The Necks.
