Trevor Jalla presents "Mo' Candy"
Following recent sell-out shows across Perth, Trevor Jalla returns to The Duke of George - this time with Mo' Candy - cooking up a swingin’ mix of Texas shuffles, New Orleans funk, 60’s soul-jazz and gritty Chicago boogie.
The engine behind the band is the inimitable Hammond organ of Bob Patient. A blues icon in his own right, Patient is one of Australia ’s finest players and regularly performs with international acts including Eugene “Hideaway” Bridges and Dave Hole. His fat bass lines and thick chord-melody approach set up the foundation for the trio’s unique sound.
Drummer extraordinaire Joe Valentine is equally at home in the blues, jump, funk, soul-jazz and hard bop idioms. He adds a groove that draws deep from the rich history of African-American music, yet continues to push the band’s musical boundaries with a contemporary sound and approach.
Special guest and honourary 4th member of the band is Fremantle's own Bill Rogers (Zydecats) on honking tenor saxophone - bringing all the class, swagger and energy that always makes for a most memorable night.
Be sure to catch Mo' Candy for a mo' better time!
