The 20s and 30s were an iconic time for music. Jazz had burst onto the world stage and Django Reinhardt ruled the Paris clubs. This is the vibrant era that excites Perth-based quartet VOUDOU ZAZOU. With a name inspired by the sharply-dressed French jazz fans, their repertoire takes you to a time when jazz was fun, with exciting arrangements of classic jazz and gypsy swing numbers, alongside the band’s own authentic originals. Equally at home in small bars, jazz rooms such as the Ellington and festival stages, the band has had a 7 year residency at the Swallow Bar and has had sell-out shows at the Ellington (“Swingtime in Paris”), a 5-night Fringe run at His Majesty’s Theatre (“Swingin’ On The High Seas) and feature performances at WA’s inaugural Gypsy Jazz Festival, alongside international stars Robin Nolan Trio and Hank Marvin Gypsy Jazz. The delightful vocals of Coo Jarvis are backed by guitar (Andy Jarvis), accordion (Mark Wearing), double bass (Sid Hennessy) and special guest Ronniet Orlando on violin. The “roaring 20s” are back and this swinging ensemble is guaranteed to get your toes tapping and bring a smile to your face – enjoy a fabulous evening of swingin’ sounds when the band returns to the Jazz Club of WA at the Milk Bar. Andy Jarvis (guitar), Mark Linkington (accordion), Ronniet Orlando (violin), Sid Hennessy (bass), Coo Jarvis (vocals).
