FRIDAY 22 NOVEMBER
Ft. B Is For Chicken, I Hold The Lions Paw, Mike Gurrieri and Shio Otan
Melbourne cult jazz quintet The Rookies are launching their second LP, ‘Stay Weird’ Friday, November 22 at The Evelyn Hotel. Featuring guest vocals from Laneous and Australian jazz legend Ben Gillespie with supports from I Hold The Lions Paw, B for Chicken and DJs Mike Gurrieri and Shio Otani.
The Rookies were born in the spring of 2014 on the forgotten end of Brunswick Street in a dimly lit room full of sweat and beer at The Rooks Return. What started as a quiet set of background jazz for punters while they imbibed their cocktails quickly devolved into an uninhibited, drunken dance party reminiscent of a time almost forgotten.
