The natural: Doing what comes naturally, & calling it ‘work’ to keep her parents happy.
A melodic encyclopaedia of show tunes, 60s harmony groups, 70s disco hits, & 80s compilation cassettes. Last seen ducking into a boutique to try on a vintage frock for the next big gig.
The nerd: possessor of a little too much information at times, but handy as Maradonna on trivia night.
Despite growing up in a house without a record player, music kidnapped his soul. The only skinny white guitarist never to play Sweet Child O Mine, instead paving his stairway to heaven with records on Stax, Motown, Tuff Gong & Blue Note.
The doctor: if he can’t put a groove in a song, that song is dead my friends.
A South Coast boy who dived head-first into the Sydney independent music scene, resurfacing years later in a jazz café in Amsterdam. The starting point in the pursuit of unravelling the mysteries of the double-bass.
The rhythm-atlas: can switch from an Amen Break to Purdie Shuffle without cracking his blue-steel gaze.
With the South Coast in his blood, Hayden found his way back home from the Big Smoke and was promptly kidnapped by The Escalators as a slave to the groove.
The alchemist: weaving musical gold with his magic horn in any situation.
As a wee lad he soaked up the family record collection while his Old Man sang in show bands. Playing in the Sydney Ska & Reggae scene back in the day, Dave soon devoted himself to jazz, practicing on CBD rooftops in his lunch break.
Equally at home busting Afrobeat grooves, or bringing some serious swing to vintage dance floor fillers, Regular Dave does it all with a tone that would warm the deepest Winter.
