Under the experienced direction of Phil Hatton, the South Perth Lions big band performs for dances, Lions events, festivals, fundraisers and public events such as the annual community Carols at Sunset. The band also plays several times a year for corporate events and private func-tions. Band mem-bers donate their services and all profits raised support the Youth Music Program and the community service of the South Perth Lions Club. For their performance at the Jazz Club of WA, they are looking forward to showcasing their pre World War 2 repertoire, including some rarely heard arrangements of traditional jazz favourites by the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, Kid Ory and Lew Pollack. They are inspired by the early jazz big band sounds of Fletcher Henderson, Jean Goldkette, Bob Crosby and Duke Ellington. Expect to hear some big band classics from Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Glenn Miller too.
