The Grubs @ The Wesley Anne

Your favourite local trad band, The Grubs, playing mucky music every Friday at the Wesley Anne in Northcote.

The Grubs are a Melbourne based New Orleans style trad jazz band, with an emphasis on bringing a larrikin, Australian approach to the music. Expect a raucous set of New Orleans party music, transported to Northcote with a focus on collective improvisation, syncopated dance rhythms and general rowdiness. The band is a classic Dixieland sextet featuring Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone, Banjo, Double Bass and Drum Kit. Most gigs also feature Jess Palmer (Hey Frankie, Yellowbird) on vocals.
