Tropical Dance Sextet - CANCELLED

Tues 28th June 2022 - The Majestic Theatre, Pomona

  • The Tropical Dance Sextet  presents Rome to Rio, an exploration of the fascinating musical alchemy between Italy and Brazil. Delightful melodies, great arrangements and superb performances by some of Brisbane’s best jazz musicians.

Tropical Dance Sextet


Having performed recently to sell-out crowds at the Brisbane Jazz Club and the Jazz Sessions at Forest Glen, the Tropical Dance Sextet will present their Rome to Rio show with some of the most popular and appealing songs by artists such as ...

Ennio Morricone, Vinicius de Moraes, Ary Barroso, Paolo Conte, Bruno Martino, Walter Malgoni, Henry Mancini, Francesco de Gregori, Luiz Bonfá, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Pink Martini and more.


Introducing Brisbane's Tropical Dance Sextet 

Eddie Gazani, born in Rio de janeiro, spent much of his youth in Italy. A fine guitarist, singer, recording artist, composer and writer, Eddie is a master of the Brazilian/Italian musical cross-genre.

Kay Sullivan, plays an Italian Scandalli accordion and shows her sophisticated empathy with Brazilian and European popular music refined through many performances in choro, forró, bossa-nova and jazz manouche styles. For many years Kay was one half of Ewan MacKenzie’s Paris Dreaming duo playing gypsy jazz in the Django Reinhardt style.

Grace Rigby has a natural talent for singing in Latin styles. Her polished vocals are a result of her totally occupying a song; acting it out as well as delivering a very special vocal performance. She also sings with the UQ BIG BAND and recently with the Braben Jenner Hot Five.

Italian-born Roberto Fontana really makes his trumpet speak with his mellifluous, well-crafted sound and exciting solos, making it easy to understand why Roberto is such an in-demand performer in Brisbane and South-East Queensland.

Nico Iaia, originally from Brindisi, Italy, plays unpretentious, solid percussion and lends his rich vocals to three outstanding songs "Come prima", "L'Italiano" and "Via con me". An inventive player, Nico lays down an unencumbered and motivating rhythmic bed.

Double-bass player and musical arranger, Peter Freeman, has played with many of Australia's top jazz musicians in bands including the Caxton Street Jazz Band, Ewan MacKenzie's Swing Manouche, the Vintage Jazz and Blues Band, and the Braben Jenner Hot Five.

Enjoy the sounds of Italy and Brazil in an afternoon of wonderful music played by the Tropical Dance Sextet at The Majestic Theatre, Pomona.
