Led by bass-player Pete Jeavons, the Swan River Ramblers (SRR) was formed in 2017 and, true to their name, the group performs mainly in a roving format aboard the Paddlesteamer Decoy as it cruises the Swan River during WA’s warmer months. After a couple of sold out shows in Dec 2020 and June 2021, the Ramblers will
once again take to the stage at the Navy Club on Sunday December 12th, for what will be their third Jazz Fremantle performance. Featuring Adam Hall trumpet/vocals, Adrian Galante clarinet, Ray Walker guitar/vocals,
Daniel Susnjar drums
and of course Pete Jeavons double bass, the Swan River Ramblers are proving popular
with Jazz Fremantle regulars so do book in early to avoid missing out. The band performs music from a wide
spectrum of styles, drawing repertoire from jazz & swing standards, trad. jazz classics, bebop, blues, New Orleans style music, gypsy jazz and more. Combining a wealth of performance experience, with instrumental virtuosity and a keen sense of spontaneity the Swan River Ramblers will deliver a great afternoon of musical entertainment that is guaranteed to please.

The Alan McCowat Band

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AMB has performed at various venues in Perth a couple of times a year since forming in 2015. For their first time performance at Jazz Fremantle you can expect new renditions of classic and modern blues standards played with much respect to the genre. Mike Nelson (Keys)is one of Jazz Fremantle’s most well known, loved and respected regular performers. We look forward to Mike bringing his massive keyboard chops into the band. Steve Searle (Reeds) is no stranger to Jazz Fremantle having performed many times, most recently in Paul Millard’s SABB. We look forward to hearing him wail some wicked blues on that sax. Paula Graham (Vocals) brings with her a beautiful big bluesy voice and a wonderful repertoire of songs. A seasoned performer Paula has performed with Tina Arena on morning television and worked as a support act with Paul Kelly, Daryl Braithwaite and the Black Sorrows. Sam Pettit (Drums) has been with us from the very first gig back in 2015. Sam has played his drums with some of Perth’s Commercial /Corporate bands since he moved here from NSW in 2001. Paul Reynolds (Bass/Vocals) ‘the bassist with the great voice’ has had a long and successful career in music. Paul played bass in ‘Down Under’ with the late John Meyer, was several times guest rock vocalist with the WA Symphony Orchestra, and a session singer including backing vocals on a recent Hank Marvin album. Alan McCowat (Guitar) is probably best known to Jazz Fremantle audiences through his work in Bloozology who have performed here several times. Having worked with many international and Australian acts throughout his career Alan feels more at home playing the blues with this band of fine musicians
