It was a pleasant surprise to be mentioned by the Canberra Times!

It was a fun gig at Molly Bar for New Years Eve 2014. Every one dressed up in true 1920’s style for the Gatsby themed evening.

The Bella Groove line-up for this amazing evening included; the talented Sally Greenaway (on keyboard) and John Burgess (on bass) and solid drummer Derrick “Noddy” Brassington. Peter Levans also joined us on a few tunes playing some cool muted trumpet.

The mood of the evening was hard to beat! The crowd sang along and danced to old jazz standards such as: Sing Sing Sing and It Don’t Mean A Thing.

The staff at Molly Bar were friendly and made everybody feel special! Those cocktails were something to write home about too!

Thanks to Eric Pozza of Canberra Jazz blog for his complimentary post.

Bella Groove certainly had a great time playing at the Hippo Co on the 14th January. It was great to see people get up and dance to our Latin & Jazz blues numbers in the last set!

We tried some new tunes this time, including: Beatrice by Sam Rivers, Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson, a jazzy interpretation of Temptation by Tom Waits.

Joe Taylor, tenor sax player was an added bonus. He was called in short notice and did a fantastic job.

We look forward to our next gig at the fabulous Hippo Co bar!
