Marie Wilson owns the Blue Rhythm Band
8.30pm Sunday 5 May, Ruby's Dance Hall, 14 Cadogan St, Marrickville (MAP), $35 at the door or included with Everything Pass.
It's the end of the weekend. We have learnt everything. We have drunk all the coffee, eaten all the cake, bathed in all the breweries. Now we just want to relax, to party like it's 1938.
Sam asked Andrew: "Can we get another vocalist, someone who's been around for ages and really know how to sing a swing song and make us dance?"
And Andrew said, "Yes."
Marie Wilson is serious jazz. She's been singing in Australia since the 1960s, and she has serious chops. We don't often get to hear her play for dancers (we never get to hear her place for dancers), but Andrew has tempted her up from the South Coast. So everyone listen up: the dame is here. And she is prepared to party.
