‘Jazz at Jamison’ welcomes back boogie woogie queen and vocalist Carolyn Packer and her band the Stompin’ Rhythm Aces.
This fun band revives the speakeasy party of Prohibition days, where wild dancing and hot jazz were the norm. The band draws its influences from a wide variety of styles – New Orleans jazz, early blues, boogie woogie, swing and gypsy jazz – guaranteed to get the party swinging!
Carolyn hails from the Central Coast and she welcomes every opportunity to get together with her Sydney-based band. The Stompin’ Rhythm Aces is comprised of some of Sydney’s most experienced jazz musicians. Joining Carolyn in Canberra will be Greg Englert on trumpet & vocals, David Ridyard on sax & clarinet, Jim Fletcher on drums, Ed Rapo on double bass and Cameron Jones on his gypsy jazz guitar.
The band has released two hugely successful albums, “There’ll Be Some Changes Made” and “Sweet Substitute” and a third album is in the pipeline.
Carolyn Packer’s Stompin’ Rhythm Aces create a party atmosphere wherever they play. Don’t miss what will be a fun afternoon of swinging, toe-tapping jazz at ‘Jazz at Jamison’.
