Saturday 18 May 8pm
Held at Wangaratta Uniting Church Hall
Formed ten years ago by guitarist Peter Balor, ULTRAFOX has built a strong reputation as an exciting swing band. This popular band is back after its appearance at last year’s Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues and previously in a Jazz Supper Club presentation.
ULTRAFOX seeks inspiration from the famous ‘manouche swing’ of The Hot Club of France featuring Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. The music is characterised by the muscular rhythms of gypsy style acoustic guitars, along with lyrical yet fiery solos.
Elegant swing and dynamic dance tempo jazz, tender ballads, French melodies, gypsy waltzes and original compositions make up the band’s extensive repertoire.
Joining Peter are Jon Delaney (guitar), Brennan Hamilton-Smith (clarinet and saxophone) and Jono Brown (double bass).
All tickets are general admission, from 7.15 pm. Choose a seat at a table for 6 – 8. BYO drinks, glasses and food on platters, if you wish.
