Sunday Jazz at the Hoi Polloi!

Hoi Polloi, Old Parliament House!

I am looking forward to performing at the Hoi Polloi restaurant again this Sunday 28 February at 12.30pm!

For this gig I will be performing with guitarist and fellow Novocastrian, Luke Greenhalgh!

Luke studied jazz guitar at Newcastle Conservatorium.

His tutors included some of Australia’s most prominent musicians; Graeme McCutcheon, Giuseppe Zangarri, Terry Latham, Carl Dewhurst, Ron Philpott and Daryl Aberhart.

Luke was also fortunate to have private tutelage from internationally acclaimed jazz guitarist Gilad Hekselman. His playing style is heavily influenced by American contemporary jazz-rock guitarists John Scofield and Pat Metheny.

He also has a love of the new wave of jazz guitarists such as Gilad Hekselman, Adam Rogers and Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Luke’s day job is with the Australian Army Band. I know for a fact that military bands produce very fine musicians. They are expected to be of a high standard upon entry and are very versatile players.

I am looking forward to performing some jazz tunes with Luke for the very first time!

So come on down to the Hoi Polloi this Sunday, the 28th February, for some fine food & jazz!
