About Julie O’Hara

Take a trip back to the clubs of Paris in the 30’s and 40’s where rhythm guitar fueled jazz manouche was swinging hot, ala Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of Paris. Jazz vocalist, Julie O’Hara presents a collection of original jazz manouche songs, along with O’Hara’s vocalese lyrics to classic Django Reinhardt compositions and other gypsy swing gems. O’Hara will be joined with guitarists extraordinaire, Jon Delaney and Sam O’Halloran along with the inimitable Tom Lee on bass. A scaled back version of O’Hara’s recent festival performances of ‘La Grande Soiree’, you’ll leave with a skip in your step and a song in your heart!

Jon Delaney Trio

Members: Jon Delaney Guitar, Tom Lee Bass, Ronny Ferella Drums

Melbourne guitarist Jon Delaney is equally impressive playing in the Gypsy jazz style made famous by Django Reinhardt or as a crackerjack jazz player performing with some the finest performers in the country. For the Sparta Lane Summer Nights series Jon and his trio will be backing four of Melbourne’s most eclectic jazz artists, with music ranging from Gypsy Jazz, Bossa Nova, Afro Cuban, The Great American Song Book and music from the screen.
