Canberra's Finest at FFL

Step out of the cold and into the toasty surrounds of Bar One88 for First Friday Live in July. Then warm up from the inside with a glass of red and the smoking jazz sounds of one of Canberra's finest jazz musicians' – Paul Dal Broi.

Last month, five local artists were show-cased in a very successful night for First Friday Live.  Now in July, we bring back a former ‘son of Griffith’ who ventured away in the 1980's to begin his career in jazz music.

Fast forward 28 years and Paul Dal Broi is back in town. But this time he is here to show off his string of accolades and a strongly refined style developed over years of experience across all styles of music and musicians. Paul studied a Diploma in Jazz at the Canberra School of Music and has performed and recorded with Aria award-winning artists Sandy Evans, Miroslav Bukovsky and Trish Delaney-Brown.

Paul has also performed with some of Sydney’s finest jazz musicians including James Greening, Warwick Alder and Brendan Clarke.

Paul has a reputation of solid, reliable musicianship, and a keen ability to tackle all genres of music. Previous projects include reggae in The Black Brothers, acid Jazz in Kongora. Paul’s most rewarding musical experience was working for three years in the modern jazz band Vertical with internationally recognised American bass player Eric Ajaye. Paul continues to perform and teach a large number of students in the Canberra region and is also a Performing Teaching Fellow at the ANU School of Music.

This Friday for FFL, Paul will be backed by house-band Metro, for a night of classic jazz along with some modern arrangements of popular songs which are sure to inspire any fan of fine music. Enjoy a night of fabulous live music. Invite your friends, book a table or just turn up! We can’t wait to see you there!

 

This month's concert will be held at Bar One88, 188 Banna Avenue, Griffith on Friday 4 July 2014 from 7.30pm. Our low cover charge of $15 goes to the performers to ensure we can keep bringing great live music to Griffith. First Friday Live is a not-for-profit, community-organised event run by local volunteers with the aim of nurturing a strong live music scene in our town.
