Bio

Late nights, flickering neon and beer fueled dance freak-outs over a gravely wailing saxophone - think New Orleans meets Twin Peaks. This is Jazz Party. Melbourne’s Monday night secret society led by former saxophonist and songwriter of Clairy Browne & The Bangin Rackettes, Darcy McNulty.

An eight-piece powerhouse with a punk attitude, furious drums, soaring vocal harmonies and horns, Jazz Party features vocalist, pianist and heart breaker Hue Blanes, as well as former members of The Rackettes, bassist and cult hero Jules Pascoe and the supreme diva, Loretta Miller.

Rebellious pleasure seekers and connoisseurs, Jazz Party combine New Orleans styled revelry with a punk attitude. They are Melbourne’s Monday night secret society where well-dressed freaks, musos and self-confessed jazz haters flock to drink and dance. With eclectic influences from Fats Waller to Hanni El Khatib, Prince to Patsy Cline and David Lynch to Robert Rodriguez, Jazz Party deliver jump blues, RnB and forgotten Jazz music with fervor.

Never been to New Orleans, but this took me halfway there. Loving that climax.
