The Cope Street Parade
Fri 02 Aug
The Cope Street Parade does love songs as no others can. Considered one of Australia’s most established high energy music ensembles, The Parade blend spicy rhythms with unique songwriting that span the genres of folk, pop, gypsy and swing.
With Influences include Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Father John Misty and Leadbelly, their tender ballads and rollicking dance numbers successfully blur the lines between the contemporary and the classic. The hot sounds of gypsy swing mixed with elements of New Orleans traditional jazz meld together like cold beers and sunshine creating a style of music that sounds both new and old yet uniquely Australian. Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis Armstrong in a good old country pub.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and since then they have released six studio albums to rave reviews and captivated audiences across the country.
