Event description

Description

Yes, a jazz quartet in Sim Lim Square. One hour, one Friday evening, one brass band bred in Singapore and influenced by New Orleans, 30 seats only.

Home of jazz and Singapore's first Audio Café Zeppelin & Co. welcome this special four for its fourth jazz night; one that promises to be the biggest to date.

That's in terms of scale, talent, audience and love for a genre that continues to delight us for its unreplicatable characteristics.

Our cicadas return to New Orleans, the spiritual home of jazz, to draw inspiration from for an historic performance in Zepp's continuing journey in appreciation of the music.

// WHO's PLAYING?

Introduction of New Orleans brass band music, rooted deeply in 'le quotidien' of people in New Orleans. Syncopate with us through pieces that illustrate life events and talk of how brass band music evolved, layered by the influences of Funk and hip-hop etc in recent years.
