Let your local Oz Big Band take you on a melodic journey through the legendary works of Quincy Jones – known as Q to his friends. From performing and arranging to producing, he has worked with everyone in music and entertainment – Count Basie, Bruce Springsteen, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, Sarah Vaughn, Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Nat King Cole, Ice T. Performing some of his most popular works, you’re guaranteed to walk away appreciating the cool cat he is and the true genius of his career.
The Oz Big Band are dedicated to recreating the music and energy of the great big bands of the 30s, 40s and 50s. They made their FRINGE WORLD debut last year with sold-out performances five nights running and are looking forward to delighting Perth audiences again in 2020!
The band has become popular amongst the Lindy Hop and Swing dance scenes around Australia for its authenticity and high energy. Touring regularly around Australia, and a regular house band at The Mustang Bar, Northbridge, they really know how to “wind it up, and let it go!”
