Cairo Club Orchestra

The Cairo Club 10 pce Orchestra is an American-type dance band based in Melbourne, Australia, comprising ten swell guys dedicated to the faithful recreation of the hot sounds of the 1920's, 30's and 40's.

The Cairo Club Orchestra recreates the fabulous sounds of the legendary Between the Wars swing and dance orchestras. Our Repertoire includes works by:

Glenn Millar - Tuxedo Junction, String of Pearls, In The Mood, Little Brown Jug
Tommy Dorsey - Buster's Gang, Look Who's Here, Shake It and Break It
Fletcher Henderson - King Porter Stomp, St Louis Shuffle, Henderson Stomp
Duke Ellington -Rent Party Blues, East St Louis Toodaloo, Rockin' in Rhythm, The Mooche
Gene Krupa - Drummin' Man, Drummer Boy
King Oliver - Edna, Boogie Woogie, Mule Face Blues
Paul Whiteman - Lady of Spain, Mississippi Mud, Happy Feet, Song of the Dawn, Felix the Cat
Woody Herman - Golden Wedding

Sets: 2 x 50 minute sets

Line-up: The Cairo Club Orchestra consists of 4 brass, 3 reeds, drums, percussion, bass and banjo/guitar.
The Orhcestra can expand to accomodate a feature vocalist, piano and/or violin.

Sound and lighting: Supplied if less than 200 guests, and depending of the size of  the venue.

These committed loony tunes have sifted through archives, braved dusty, spider-filled garages and swapped scores with venerable eccentrics in Australia and overseas to locate the best in early jazz, blues, swing, talkie hits and novelty music.

And when they can't physically locate the music, well some of the guys just go ahead and transcribe scores from original recordings.

All  musicians play on period instruments, and if you asked them why they do it, they'd tell you they do it because it's fun.

Enter a world where radio is the latest in communications technology and crooners rule the airwaves; where patent medicines cure everything and Kensitas cigarettes are "a Recipe for Sunshine"; where anything wonderful is "the cat's meow" and using Rinso "saves a scuttle of coal every washday"; where flappers dare to role down their stockings and kick up their heels and a whole population dances their troubles away to the irresistible sounds of the fabulous Cairo Club Orchestra. 

"Outside of North America, Melbourne is the biggest swing city in the world."  
 -The Age 2003
