Julian Banks Group @ Paris Cat Jazz Club

‘Julian Banks Group’ features some of Australia’s finest musicians collaborating with stellar Indonesian percussionist Cepi Kusmiadi on the Kendang Sunda*. 

 

Kusmiadi’s bubbling magic on this beautiful traditional Indonesian instrument creates the perfect bed for the modern grooves and melodic sensibilities of Banks’ original compositions, and should provide a unique experience for Australian audiences, perhaps unfamiliar with the sound of Kendang Sunda. 

 

After many successful performances in Indonesia including the 2016 Ubud Jazz Festival, this group are showcasing this music for the very first time in Australia this January, so come down and treat your ears to ‘Julian Banks Group’.

 

 

. *The Kendang Sunda is a two-headed drum used by people across many southeast Asian countries, but the oldest records of this instrument can be found in Indonesia's ancient temples, including ninth century Borobudur.

Williams Sings Winehouse

Raleigh Williams is thrilled to be returning to the Paris Cat.
Heavily inspired in her own musical journey by modern jazz, soul and pop prodigal daughter Amy Winehouse, The Raleigh Williams Band has hand-picked favourites, known and lesser-known, from Winehouse's songbook to revisit over this night of musical tribute.
Williams contributes her own sound to the pieces from the Grammy-winning albums 'Frank', 'Back to Black' and the posthumously released 'Lioness' that have been admired and loved world-wide amongst music fans.
Fresh from a sold-out show with her French project La Nuit Blanche, Williams is delighted to join David Gooey on Guitar, James Gilligan on Bass, Gareth Bowen on drums plus special appearances for this evening of music.
