Sydney born and bred, The Parade does love songs like no others can.
The Cope Street Parade are a high energy Australian music ensemble. They blend spicy rhythms with unique song writing that span the genres of folk, pop, gypsy and swing. With tender ballads and rollicking dance numbers they capture the spirit and warmth of early music styles and successfully blur the lines between the contemporary and the classic. Influences include Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Father John Misty and Leadbelly.

Mr Ott
DROP IT LIKE IT’S OTT (Earshift)

★★★½

It even had its own name, “Ethio-jazz”, a unique jazz offshoot that Mulatu Astatke nurtured in Ethiopia in the early 1970s, and it soon became a benchmark of hipness. You can hear why in Matt Ottignon’s band Mr Ott, which plays original music drenched in Ethiopian rhythms and textures that is so infectious as to erode my suspicion of projects so subservient to idiom. The grooves, a jigsaw of minimal contributions from horns, guitar, keyboards, bass, drums and percussion, have an edge of exoticism as well as creating surges of energy. Wah-wah guitar, almost the style’s birthmark, is here supplied by Ben Panucci, who also produces some startling solos. Ottignon’s tenor and baritone saxophones intermittently blaze like bushfires through rhythmic thickets in which Eden Ottignon’s bass plays a hypnotic part. Ellen Kirkwood provides slicing trumpet, Daniel Pliner the chunky or slippery keyboards and Dan Kennedy and Steve Marin hold down the all-important drums/percussion duties. JOHN SHAND

Mister Ott with dancers + Slowpoke Rodriguez + El Chino @ 505 Saturday June 28

505 with dancers lo res

We have a massive night planned. Mister Ott will be in extended 8 piece mode with Peter Farrar on sax and Steve Marin on percussion and I’m proud to announce that there will also be four incredible dancers assembled by Fenix Icatu, specialists in dancehall, house, popping etc. We saw Fenix and Miguel last year at 505 and I am very excited to say that Fenix will be back again this time with 3 new dancers in tow.

To kick off the night we have Slowpoke Rodriguez, a band made up of members of the Strides, Watussi and Deep Sea Arcade and featuring  trumpeter Ken Allars. If you want to hear what they sound like check their band camp page here

Doors open at 6pm for those who want to have dinner there and get in early for the cocktails! The poster says 7:30pm doors, but they will be open from 6.
