Bathtub Gin Orchestra - Gin Tasting & Live Concert

Price $35 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

The Bathtub Gin Orchestra is two parts 1920s stomp, one-part early 1930s swing, and a generous splash of French and Gypsy Jazz. Pour contents into an iron bathtub and stir with a broom handle and drink in the good vibes of the party music of the early 20th Century. 

The group features husband and wife duo, Morgan and Phoebe Haselden, who lived in France for six months performing and exploring the elusive and seductive mystery that is Gypsy Jazz. They bring driving and exciting synergy to the stage, adding lively improvisations in the “hot jazz” vein. Phoebe is also an accomplished vocalist, entertaining audiences with her tuneful renditions of French jazz songs such as “C’est Si Bon”. 

Audiences have come to expect the Bathtub Gin Orchestra to enliven the house, bringing   zany energy as they romp through upbeat swing standards, clarinet features and sweet melodic favourites such as “Moonglow” and “Begin the Beguine”.  

The jazz manouche repertoire has broadened the range of the Bathtub Gin Orchestra with high energy Django classics such as “Minor Swing, “Douce Ambience” or the pensive “Nuages”. 

This swinging sextet comprises Phoebe Haselden on violin/vocals, Morgan Haselden guitar/vocals, Dorian Mode piano/vocals, Brendan Berlach saxophone/clarinet, Fiona Lugg double bass and Toby Hall on vintage drumset.
