Rounding out the band will be George Greenhill on drums and Nick Jansen on double bass. They'll be playing original songs of Hamilton's and Walder's, with a few standards in the mix. One night only! We hope to see you there!

His beautiful sound and style, his feeling for the characteristics of the instrument and his effortless flow of ideas in any idiom have made him the trumpeter of choice for many artists and many styles, from the traditional to the avant-garde.
Alder was a founding member of James Morrison’s first band; Morrison Bros. Big Band, as well as Australia’s leading modern jazz ensemble; Ten Part Invention. He has been a lecturer at the Sydney Conservatorium since time immemorial, and continues to inspire audiences with his unique approach to the music.
