The Great Gatsby Party
Elephant & Co Restaurant, Pmb: Sat 29 Feb @ 7:00 pm
Leap into the ‘Roaring 20s’ with a Leap Year ‘Great Gatsby’ Party at Elephant & Co on Saturday, 29 February with Platform Jazz playing music from the 20’s and beyond, presented in association with Christopher Duigan’s Music Revival.
Enduringly one of the most popular party themes, ‘The Great Gatsby Party’ reflects the ‘adventurous’’ social changes that were in the air in the 1920’s. This was also to be seen in the jazz music of the time. Be entertained by seven-piece jazz band ‘Platform Jazz’ performing ‘hot’ jazz numbers such as ‘Georgia’, ‘Ain’t Misbehavin,’ ‘Chicago’ and many more. All the favourites by Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong are on the programme. Durban-based Platform Jazz are a stellar collection of top musicians, including Cathy “Hotlips” Peacock on trumpet, Kirsten “The Kitten” Sayers on clarinet , Jeff “Papa Wok” Robinson on sax, and David Solomon, who completes the frontline, on trombone. Jazz legend, Melvin Peters, is to be heard on keys, “Bashful” Bruce Baker is on drums and Andreas “Bullfiddle” Kappen on bass, completes the rhythm section. Christopher Duigan makes a guest appearance and the sultry voice of glamorous KZN song bird, Shelley McLean, completes the line-up.
The second half of the show will bring in ‘swing’ favourites for those that care to dance! Platform Jazz will get you shimmying and flapping, and your toes definitely tapping, at this entertaining show. So, don those spats, bobs and fascinators and join the party!
