About the event
Corner House Jazz Band plays traditional jazz with a hard driving style, making it one of Australia’s most accomplished jazz bands. The band was formed in 1980 to play at the Railway Hotel, North Fremantle, and still plays at the Swan Hotel nearby every Saturday afternoon. It is in it’s 20th year of Friday night gigs at the Jazz Cellar in Mount Hawthorn. The Cellar is always jumpin' with the band's pumping and nostalgic repertoire that includes New Orleans Jazz, the Chicago sounds of the roaring 20s, Swing, the Duke Ellington jungle sounds of the Cotton Club in Harlem, Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, and Souza Marches, plus much more.
The band has toured overseas, twice to the USA, to Malaysia, Japan, New Zealand and Borneo, as well as playing in all Australian states.
