Ever wondered what it’s like to immerse yourself in the sounds of jazz legends?
Well… Now’s your chance, because Jazz by Candlelight is coming to Melbourne with some incredible tributes to some of the best musicians in history.
Showcasing the wonderful talent of Louis Armstrong, Melbourne’s first Jazz by Candlelight concerts will take place on 24 and 25 March when audiences will be treated to the sounds of some of Pops’ most career-defining songs including What A Wonderful World and When The Saints Go Marching In.
Following on from Louie, Melbourne’s jazz tribute concerts pay their respects to the man with the voice of the century—Mr Frank Sinatra. While candlelight flickers, audience members will sway and swoon to the sounds of The Girl From Ipanema, The Way You Look Tonight and I’ve Got You Under My Skin among many more. (The Frank Sinatra tribute concert has now sold out, so fingers crossed there’ll be more in the future.)
With careers that spanned more than five decades, numerous jazz eras, and records that sold millions around the world, these Candlelight jazz tributes to two of the genre’s most influential and acclaimed artists ever to grace the stage is second only to seeing the legends perform themselves.
Playing the sounds of these jazz greats at Melbourne’s Jazz by Candlelight events will be the city’s most-trusted working band—Orlando Combo. Since 1996, Orlando Combo have been providing the genuine jazz experience for audiences at international events like the Aus Open and the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week as well as at public residencies at some of the city’s best live-music venues like The Night Cat.
Orlando Combo will perform as their highly-regarded jazz quintet to add depth and a touch of soul and swing to these inaugural jazz tribute concerts in Melbourne.
Melbourne’s three Jazz by Candlelight nights will be performed at Port Melbourne’s The Timber Yard, which has already successfully hosted the classical concerts by Candlelight series showcasing Vivaldi’s most treasured masterpieces.
The Candlelight concerts take place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances at 7:30pm and later at 9:30pm. Doors will open 45 minutes prior to each show and upon arrival you will be greeted with a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink. Tickets start at $40 per person.
Candlelight is a live-music event unlike any other and these tribute jazz performances will elevate the experience even higher.
