Performing contemporary classics and Gatsby’s era favourites, suave gentleman JAKE DENNIS will entertain you, his party guests, with a terrific selection of Gatsby style music performed with his live swing band.
Enjoy this Saturday night in Gatsby style with your swinging party-host and eternal romantic JAKE DENNIS and his band that will perform a selection of over a century of popular music! Gatsby’s Party includes modern songs, much like Baz Buhrmann’s highly popular musical film, so you can look forward to early 20th century classics by BILLIE HOLIDAY, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, ELLA FITZGERALD, and RAY CHARLES, in addition to classics from the 1960s-2010s by ARETHA FRANKLIN, ELTON JOHN, MADONNA, DRAKE, and more! This is a funky jazz, swing, and blues concert with added pop and RnB hits that your family, friends, and lovers will enjoy.
JAKE DENNIS is a charming young talent who has enjoyed sell-out performances at Perth’s top venues, including His Majesty’s Theatre, The Laneway Lounge, Ellington, Rigby’s and The Don Russell, Kalamunda, Mandurah, and Subiaco Performing Arts Centres. In reviewing one of Jake’s Fringe World cabarets, The West Australian proclaimed: “There can be no doubting the quality of Jake Dennis’ singing voice.” Australian Stage affirmed his “impressive vocal range” and “charm.” You will love him!
