Hailing from the sonic vortex of Melbourne’s music community, WVR BVBY (pronounced war baby) bring a live infusion of down-tempo, cinematic soul and jazz through what they like to call intergalactic hard-groove. Taking inspiration from crate digger culture and 70s production techniques, WVR BVBY fuse these tonalities with a direction towards a meditative environment.
Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street funk, The Seven Ups are the original 7-piece party band out of Melbourne. Expect unrestrained solos by unkempt horns over an unpretentious rhythm section.
Jazz is not all smokey rooms and chill tunes. Jazz can be upbeat, fun and something to get your groove on. The Friday Nights Southside are party central for Stonnington Jazz Festival. Join us as we dance the night away, let our hair down and spill onto Chapel Street to explore the many late night spots on offer.
WVR BVBY 9 – 10pm
The Seven Ups 10 – 11pm
