About The Band:
The Gus Leighton Quartet is an up-and-coming group in the Australian jazz scene which plays a combination of original compositions and arrangements of jazz standards. Gus Leighton fronts the band on Tenor Saxophone and is joined by Mathew Olivier on Piano, Sasha Gavlek on Double Bass and Lawrence Churches on Drums.
Gus’ compositions are honest and emotionally charged, taking influences from his musical heroes and built upon his experiences, his current life and hopes for the future. You can expect to hear ballads, hard swingers, cookin' bebop and the occasional waltz in this unique act that features some of Tasmania’s finest young jazz musicians.
***We would like to also thank Gavin Wolfe who will be working his magic on the night by recording the show!***
