conviction‚€†-John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

‚€œWright imbues every piece

Making her Foundry616 debut is the stunning vocalist†Evelyn Duprai. Australian born of African heritage, Evelyn is renowned for her versatility, flowing in and out of musical genres with effortless ease. As a testament to this ability, Evelyn has toured with rock band Silverchair, electro-pop artist, Paul Mac, iconic jazz legend, James Morrison as well as funkster Larry Braggs of acclaimed ‚€˜Tower Of Power‚€™.†

And now Evelyn Duprai has come into her own!

With a sensational band comprising Gerard Masters (piano/MD),†David Holmes (guitar),†Brett Hirst (double bass), Peter Drummond (drums) and Mare (violin), brace yourself for a tantalising musical feast as Evelyn Duprai delivers her luscious tone with the captivating, passion, style and class she has become so well known for!

In collaboration with Gerard Masters, Evelyn has created some stunning arrangements of jazz classics covering artists such as Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and even Edith Piaf, together with a sprinkling of original compositions that subtly fuse her African heritage together with that recognisable old school jazz diva style often attributed to the likes of Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. Thursday May 29th 2014 will definitely be a night to remember as Evelyn Duprai brings her style and her sound to FOUNDRY 616!

Sharing the evening with Evelyn Duprai will be Sydney based vocalist and saxophonist ‚€“ Nic Jeffries. Nic is admired the world over by both audiences and musicians alike for his big, warm vocal tone which is often described as being just ‚€˜like chocolate‚€™. He‚€™s worked with some of the greats in the Australian and international music scene, and is himself greatly respected and admired as one of the finest band-leaders in Australia. With a voice influenced by greats such as Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and James Taylor he has an ability to interpret and create music that is both soulful and emotional. Nic will be accompanied by Marcello Maio a musician & composer who has become somewhat of an underground celebrity in the Sydney music scene. Marcello is accomplished in piano, piano-accordion, keyboards as well as flute, and often can‚€™t be categorised as he slips from Jazz to more Brazilian and other Latin influenced music with astonishing confidence and facility.

With Nic Jeffries and Marcello Maio kicking off the night, expect spontaneity, expect excitement, expect ANYTHING as one of Australia‚€™s finest voices combines with the soul, beauty and musicality of one of the most exciting musicians you‚€™re likely to hear anywhere!

Camelot Lounge, 19 Marrickville Road Marrickville NSW 2204

†Following a string of sell out shows, Marsala are back at Camelot for another huge party! Marsala covers some of the best music from Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Russia, France, Italy, Spain, Zimbabwe‚€¶

They create passion and romance where ever they go. Audiences can‚€™t help but dance and fall in love with each other‚€™s traditions.

Marsala is more of an institution than a band. It brings together the life work and study of some outstanding musicians. They bring together knowledge and understanding of various traditions and continue to explore and present ‚€˜the world‚€™ in music.‚€ Some of the incredible featured musicians in Marsala include‚€¶

Vladimir Khusid grew up in Azerbaijan and studied trumpet under the rigors of communism. He worked as a trumpet player for all of his early life. He left the USSR during the cold war and the price he paid for taking his family to the west was to have his trumpet, his lively hood confiscated at the airport as they were leaving. He worked in a bread shop in Sydney until he could buy an instrument, learned English and is now one of Sydney‚€™s most respected and well rounded trumpet players as well as being in charge of the brass at Sydney Boys Grammar School. His maturity, wisdom and astonishing playing brings worlds of experience in classical, jazz and traditional Eastern European musical traditions.

Lupco Stojcevski, who learned the Macedonian tradition of music and saxophone from his father Blagoja Stojcevski. This family has kept that tradition alive and strong in Sydney. The saxophone is a totally unique instrument in the hands of a Macedonian musician and this is a strong feature of the Marsala World Music Mix. Lupco‚€™s sax playing has to be seen and heard to be believed!
