“This is ecstasy”
– John Clare, Sydney Morning Herald
Cope Street Parade do love songs like no one else can.
The hot sounds of gypsy swing mixed with elements of New Orleans traditional jazz meld together in a melting-pot of cold beers and sunshine to create a style of music that sounds both new and old yet always uniquely Australian. Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis Armstrong in a good old country pub.
They blend spicy rhythms with unique song-writing that span the genres of jazz, folk, pop, gypsy and swing. With tender ballads and rollicking dance numbers, they capture the spirit and warmth of early music styles, and cheekily blur the lines between the contemporary and the classic.
