PHILLIP JOHNSTON & THE COOLERATORS ALBUM LAUNCH

Both groovy and cerebral, Phillip Johnston and The Coolerators play funky dance music.  They now present Phillip's second Australian recording, Diggin' Bones: tight, compact, funky, smart and a reinvention of groove jazz.  Supporting them is Amphibious Duo.  Oliver Miller and Aaron 'Baz' Flower perform an intimate version of the Amphibious Quartet's unusual melange, an expression of beauty and depth of classical music and jazz rhythms.   
 
When: 8:00pm Saturday 4 August
