Sirens Big Band at LIVE @ 505

Eastside Radio presents their Live @ 505 that takes place every second Thursday of the month, where we showcase local Australian musicians and Djs at 505, 280 Cleveland St Surry Hills.

This December Eastside’s Live @ 505 will be taken over by 17-piece, all-female ensemble Sirens Big Band.
Founding members Jessica Dunn (bass) and Harriet Harding (saxophone) formed the band in 2009 in a direct response to the under-representation of women in the jazz music community. Featuring a host of some of Australia’s strongest and most exciting young, female musicians and improvisors the band explores the intersection of jazz with South Indian, afro-beat, Balkan, Ethiopian and reggae music.

In a short time Sirens have enjoyed considerable success, establishing themselves as a vital and innovative addition to the Australian jazz community. Their resume includes working with Lanie Lane, Jeff Duff and Dan Barnett; as well as performing at the Sydney Festival, The Darling Harbour Jazz and Blues Festival and the Manly Jazz Festival.

“This all-female jazz ensemble…can roar as one like an Ethiopian lion or fly like a bullet train, and yet also bristles with world-class soloists who are given free rein to blow and blow and blow.
–Orange Press

Performing songs from their upcoming debut album ‘Kali and the Change of Time’ Live @ 505 will come alive with the Sirens’ sound! 17 young, talented, female musicians all under the one roof…
Who could ask for more!
