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
Sets: 2 x 50 minute sets
Line-up: The Cairo Club Orchestra consists of 4 brass, 3 reeds, drums, percussion, bass and banjo/guitar.
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.
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.
