Swing to the music

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

James Morrison Academy alumni, The Bad Motor Scooters, will bring delight to the ears of those on the Deniliquin Golf Club green tomorrow.

The four graduates of the James Morrison Academy of Music make up the group, which tour together across the world.

South West Music projects and concerts coordinator Dana McNally said the night would be a live music experience like no other.

‘‘We are thrilled to offer our community an incredible opportunity to see world class musicians performing right here in Deni at a stunning location, our very own Deni golf course.

‘‘All of our events are free to under 18s to make it really easy for parents to expose their kids to incredible music and have an awesome memorable family experience.

‘‘It’s the last night of daylight saving, and we are going to see it off with a bang with talented, high energy, fun, engaging performers who are excited to come and thrilled to play for us,’’ she said.

The band’s musical roots are entrenched in the jazz and swing tradition. It comprises drummer Patrick ‘Patty’ Danao, guitarist William Morrison, saxophonist Jake Barden and Harry Morrison on double bass, as they perform everything from dixieland classics to selections from The Great American Songbook.

‘‘Swing on the Grass is a very popular annual event with our 100 plus subscribers and based on ticket sales and enquires to date we anticipate a huge crowd,’’ Mrs McNally said.

Tickets are $35 each and free for under 18.

Bring along a picnic blanket and chairs and enjoy a night of quality music.

Drinks and snacks available to purchase from the bar.
