Rodric is delighted to perform again at Foundry 616 with the talents of Ralph Pyl (trumpet), Jason Morphett (soprano & tenor saxophones), Danny Carmichael (trombone), Stan Valacos (acoustic bass) and Steve Ley (drums).
‘Passionate performances of songs associated with the marvelous Billie Holiday made for a great night’s entertainment at Foundry 616. Rodric White’s arrangements allowed the talented six piece band to display their considerable skills allowing the musicians to entertain and display their skills as soloists and as an ensemble … The Rodric White Septet featuring singer Lana Nesnas was at the fabulous Foundry616 in Harris St, Ultimo on 14th September. The show and venue are both recommended.’ – Mark Pigott (Sydney Arts Guide 15th September 2018)

‘ … The music shouts its strengths for all to hear: engaging original compositions, interesting textural meshes of acoustic and electronic and fine playing from pianist White and a cast including Phil Slater and Dale Barlow … ‘ – John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald 24th November 2006)
