Sassafras  

Perth’s premier gypsy jazz group ‘Sassafras’ returns to the Duke. Featuring Jessie Gordon (voice), Adrian Galante (clarinet), Lachlan Gear & Aaron Deacon (guitars) and Pete Jeavons (bass), Sassafras combines toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy classics, wistful French ballads and re-worked jazz standards in a vibrant and engaging mix of acoustic music, all performed with the dazzling virtuosity and passion that is intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition. 

"Acoustic gypsy jazz band Sassafras presented a world-class musical performance to the capacity audience that filled (the) Ellington Jazz Club..." Steve Baitz, Seesaw Mag, Jan 26th 2019

"What a truly extraordinary group of talented performers. This 5-piece Perth jazz band is a amalgamation of 4 of the most enigmatic musicians you'll ever see. Not to mention, the vocals of Jessie Gordon who has the most astoundingly powerful range" Amanda Lancaster, Fourth Wall Media, Jan 31st 2018
