Late nights, sweaty bodies, blue smoke and beer fuelled dance freak-outs over a gravely wailing saxophone – think New Orleans processionals meets Twin Peaks. JAZZPARTY is Melbourne’s Monday night secret society led by former saxophonist and songwriter of Clairy Browne & The Bangin Rackettes Darcy McNulty and supreme diva and ex-Rackette Loretta Miller. Growing wildly from the lounge rooms of late night house parties to month long Monday night residencies throughout the city, JAZZPARTY has held court at many of the most electrifying venues in Melbourne as well as tearing up local and national Music and Arts Festivals; from Golden Plains – Melbourne International Jazz Festival, WOMAD and Dark Mofo. Featuring a rotating cast plus regular features from members of bands such as Husky, The Cat Empire, Mo’Ju and On Diamond – The spirit of Jazz Party is surprise and spontaneity and you just never know who will show up to play a Jazz Party gig. JAZZ PARTY is like nothing you have seen before or will likely see again, as if a wild shindig collided with a cult gathering.
