Yellowbird are one of the most exciting young Jazz bands in Australia. The band pride themselves on their ability to truly capture the essence behind the music of the Jazz and swing era. This comes from a shared, genuine passion for the music, rather than a tiresome lacklustre approach of just playing the songs without any dedication.
The members of Yellowbird are all graduates from the renowned Monash University Jazz Course and started the band with a shared love of the music from the swing era featuring a varied repertoire specialising in the music of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Lester Young while more recently performing original arrangements of songs by Joni Mitchell and Bjork . Yellowbird play this beautiful music with a fresh and modern outlook, whilst always staying true to the sincerity and legacy of Jazz.
The bands’ high quality musicianship has seen them appear at high profile venues including Vue De Monde, Bennetts Lane, Paris Cat Jazz Club, Crown Paladium, Melbourne GPO, Myer Mural Hall and the Melbourne Immigration Museum.
Yellowbird are best heard as the full quintet but also offer flexibility to customise their line up to best suit your needs. The bands’ aim is to set the perfect atmosphere at your event, ideal for weddings, cocktail functions, corporate events and parties where you are seeking a high quality, professional Jazz band that will tremendously impact on the success of your event.
