Mike Katz, Graeme Pogson and Tamil Rogeon are 3 of Australia's finest musicians. The psychedelic disco the trio create with the deadly combination of analogue synths, electric strings and drums has been described as "Like Arthur Russell wearing John Oates's moustache while making love to Cat Stevens circa Izitso"
Harvey Sutherland’s self-titled album and Expectations EP dropped earlier this year to critical acclaim. Their track Bermuda was one of the top 10 viral tracks on Spotify and it’s not hard to hear why. Their celestial funk electronica evokes Kool and the Gang and Hercules and Love Affair – Harvey Sutherland’s sound world is truly unique.
Since Harvey last played with us in 2016 we've seen Bermuda world domination kick into overdrive! With sell out world tours and festival headline slots, the launch of Clarity Recordings and more production and engineering work than ever we are witnessing the birth of a global superstar. We're most excited to welcome Mike+ the team back for round 3....
Those who were lucky enough to witness the lads play Rhythm Section presents at Jazz Café last August will know that this is a performance not to be missed!
Saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia is one of London Jazz Scene’s rising stars. She’s played alongside the likes of Yusef Kamaal, Moses Boyd Theon Cross Trio, Congo Natty, Kiko Bun, SE Dub Collective and Maisha, to name but a few and has recently released her LP "Nubya’s 5ive" on Jazz re:freshed in May. The Launch, earlier this year at the Jazz cafe has already gone down in the annals of London Jazz History. If you missed that this is your chance.
Hotly Tupped by key figuers such as Gilles Peterson ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04x8z9x )Nubya’s genuine talent for trad jazz combined with her undeniably contemporary sound make for an authentic, nostalgic virtuosity that is crucial to hear and see live.
For round 2 of our Jazz Cafe collaboration in 2018 we proudly usher in our very own 30/70 to deliver the full force of Melbourne Soul. With Vels Trio, coming from the Total Refreshment Centre stable and acclaimed songwriter Laura Misch also joining us, it’s set to be our best show to date.
