East Side Jazz Band is one of Victoria's most popular jazz bands, comprised of some of Melbourne’s finest musicians. The band can move from a very laidback, swing style of music (Sinatra, Ellington, Connick Jr., Armstrong) to Latin rhythms, blues (Ray Charles) and funk. The band can perform as a small trio, with a guitarist who sings in the style of Sinatra, a sax player who doubles on trumpet and clarinet and a double bass player who doubles on vocals. For a bigger sound the band adds drums, extra brass and other instruments as required. The band has performed at all of Melbourne's leading hotels, nightspots, corporate venues and wedding and reception centres, including Federation Square, the Melbourne Club, the RACV Club, Hilton on the Park, Victorian Art Gallery, the new museum, Melbourne Zoo and most wineries.
