Swan River Ramblers

Entry prices for this concert will be:

$20 Members - $25 Non Members

Led by bassplayer Pete Jeavons, the Swan River Ramblers (SRR) was formed in 2017 and, true to their name, the group performs mainly in a roving, quartet format aboard the

Paddlesteamer Decoy as it cruises the Swan River during WA’s warmer months. The band performs a wide spectrum of music, 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. In a rare jaunt away from the decks of the PS Decoy, Sunday December 6 will see the SRR take to the stage at Jazz Fremantle with an expanded line-up featuring new recruits
Jeremy Thomson guitar, and Ben Vanderwal drums, alongside regular ramblers Adam Hall trumpet/vocals, Adrian Galante clarinet and of course Pete Jeavons double bass.
