Formed by bassplayer Pete Jeavons in 2017 the Swan River Ramblers initially performed only as a roving, acoustic quartet aboard the Paddlesteamer Decoy as it cruised the Swan River during WA’s warmer months.
With many sold out shows aboard the PS Decoy now under their belt The Ramblers have started to make a few appearances on land too, adding a drummer to their ranks and performing at venues such as The Duke of George, Lyric’s Underground, The Ellington Jazz Club and the Navy Club (Jazz Fremantle). The Ramblers will once again take to the stage at the Navy Club on Sunday December 10, for what will be their seventh Jazz Fremantle performance: featuring Adam Hall (trumpet/vocals), Ray Walker (guitar/vocals), Lachlan Glover (saxophone), Pete Evans (drums), and of course Pete Jeavons double bass.
The band performs music from a wide spectrum of styles, drawing repertoire from jazz and swing standards, trad. jazz classics, bebop, blues, New Orleans style music, gypsy jazz and more. Combining a wealth of performance experience, with instrumental virtuosity and a keen sense of spontaneity the Swan River Ramblers will deliver a great afternoon of musical entertainment that is guaranteed to please.
