The Concerteenies is presenting another jazz performance on a Sunday for all the working parents and carers who cannot make the weekday event with their little ones.
Jack Beeche on saxophone, will be joined by Dan Mamrot on guitar and Ben Chirstianson on the double bass! They’ll be playing music from Dan Mamrot’s upcoming album.
Jack Beeche is an Australian saxophonist based in Melbourne. After graduating from the ANU school of music in 2004 he moved to London where he immersed himself in the local jazz scene, attending jam sessions, gigging and performing in the UK and Europe. During this period Beeche played in ensembles ranging from jazz to cabaret, ska and hip hop. He regularly travelled, studying with top international jazz musicians, searching for his own approach to improvised jazz. After becoming highly influenced by alto saxophonist Lee Konitz who strives to improvise entirely in the moment; Beeche returned to Australia in 2009 where he settled in Melbourne. Beeche works regularly with jazz ensembles in Melbourne, performing at festivals and touring nationally. In 2015 he completed his Masters of music performance at Monash University and released his first album Golden Blue.
Beeche’s saxophone ranges from loud, rock fuelled intensity in bands like Tim Willis’s – The End and Jessica Carlton’s ISSHO; to lyrical, interactive conversations, heard on his 2015 release Golden Blue and 2016 release Beeche / Magnusson. You can learn more at jackbeeche.com.
Dan Mamrot on guitar earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Music at Monash Conservatorium of Music and studied with Glenn Cannon, Dene Ford, Jeremy Alsop, Steven Magnusson, James Sherlock, Sam Evans and Ben Robertson.
The Victoria Hotel in Hyde street is a beautiful gastro pub serving a fantastic variety of tasty food, as well as a great choice of beverages. They have everything in this pub including an amazing family space where the kids are safe and free to run around on the children’s equipment. We think this is a great environment for another one of our relaxed concerts, parents, carers and children alike.
As always, the little ones will be urged to do as they please. To play, to listen, or do both. While the carers have a moment to listen to fantastic music without worrying about shushing and letting their kids roam around in a safe space.
This concert is $20 per adult. Kids go FREE!
And with your purchase of a Concerteenies ticket, you will also get your children’s meal for free with every adult meal you buy.
So kids eat AND listen for FREE!
Please note that although the concert series is designed for 0 – 5s and their carers, we of course invite older kids to this event and under 16s go free. Just be mindful that the pub’s policies about the play equipment is that it is to be used by 0 -5s only.
