South Coast groovemeisters The Escalators are on a musical mission with a simple mantra: Come Together! Tintenbar Hall is the perfect venue for doing just that.
With more grooves than a record store, The Escalators tip their fedoras to the sophistication of Swing, the funk of New Orleans, & the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica. The Escalators excel at cross-pollinating great jazz standards with groove-driven genres, and grafting original compositions onto their swing, soul & reggae roots.
The Escalators have two studio releases ‘Felix’ (2014) & ‘From The Hip’ (2016) which you can stream right from their website. The success of these 2 CDs has inspired extensive East Coast travels, earned prestigious invitations to Noosa Jazz & Manly Jazz Festivals, & a #1 song on Triple J Unearthed!
After hundreds of shows together, The Escalators can hold listeners spell-bound in a ‘hear-a-pin-drop’ concert, or have the floorboards of a School of Arts Hall heaving under the weight of unhinged dancing.
The gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden's voice will embrace you & steal your heart. Lachlan Mackenzie’s guitar weaves with pick-pocket grace through a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parson's upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore.
Tintenbar Up Front is a monthly evening of performance at Tintenbar Hall, organised by volunteers who put their passion into practice, creating a music venue much loved by Australian & international touring artists.
“This tour is all about connection,” says guitarist Lachlan Mackenzie. “We carefully selected venues whose philosophy we respect, because they enrich their communities through art & culture.”
“Places like Tintenbar Up Front are the future of live music,” says Lachlan. “We are returning to an old-fashioned idea of great music in community spaces. We see people reconnect with the magic of live music because it is intimate & it is a shared experience. And that elevates our performance to new heights.”
“Tintenbar Up Front is perfect for artist & audience,” says singer Jenny Blunden. “Sharing music with people who have come together, heart & mind, makes it more meaningful & rewarding for everyone.”
“On this tour we are consciously supporting the venues that we want to see more of, and we can’t wait to meet the music lovers of Tintenbar & surrounds.”
