The Powerhouse Jazz Band was formed in 1997 with the commitment to present a diversity of Jazz styles like Swing, Dixie, Blues and Latin. With the cooperation of some very fine, versatile and dedicated musicians ( three are Jazz teachers), the Powerhouse Jazz Band has become one of the leading Wa Jazz Bands. Performance is mainly as a six piece with trumpet, trombone, reeds, piano ( or keyboard ), bass and drums which also features two excellent singers within the band.Guitar is added for special functions and the band can also perform as a smaller swinging Quartet if required.

Powerhouse performs for various events including Corporate Functions, Clubs, Hotels, Weddings, Dances, Jazz Festivals ( York Festival ) etc.. and provides its own P.A System. The bands aim is to leave the audience happy and in good spirits.

Both the Powerhouse Jazz band and the Larrikins were very much appreciated.

I actually arrived late to our function at the Museum because I got caught him with other issues however, a lot of people were saying how great they were. Playing ‘we are sailing’ at the appropriate time was excellent too! O’Connor Landing was packed even though it was an extremely hot day and Starlight and DOCKERS staff said the music was great! So a huge thank you to everyone and I look forward to working with you all again.
