Saturday 30 September

The catholics (Sydney Fringe Festival)


Lloyd Swanton's eternally-popular jazz/world ensemble The catholics are back at 505, where they always tear the house down.

One of the original ground breaking acts in World/Jazz music with an incomparable line up of great musicians and a history as long as your arm of delighting audiences around the globe.

"I don't think I have ever encountered anyone familiar with The catholics who doesn't like their music. The blend of happy-go-lucky melodies, bouncing rhythms, clever arrangements and strong improvising seems to be irresistible.The surprise is that one can find no obvious stylistic precursors or clones...the combination of personalities lends the band its special spark of levity and celebration" (SMH)
