Sydney born and bred, The Cope Street Parade does love songs like no others can. Now in its 12th year, the Parade is considered one of Australia’s most established creative music ensembles. Blending spicy rhythms with unique song writing, expect rock-along tunes that span jazz, folk, pop, gypsy and swing.
Whether playing tender ballads or rollicking dance numbers, these musicians capture the spirit and warmth of early music styles and cheekily blur the lines between the contemporary and the classic. They wear their influences with pride, channelling Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Father John Misty and Leadbelly.
Hear the hot sounds of gypsy swing peppered with New Orleans traditional jazz in a melting-pot of music that sounds both new and old, yet always uniquely Australian. Imagine Django Reinhardt meeting Louis Armstrong in a good old country pub.
Brace yourselves for the sentimental, the emotive, and the downright funny.
