The Down South Jazz Club has a special night lined up with visiting international artist Gregg Arthur and the Andrew Dickeson Trio.

The band consists of Gregg Arthur (vocals), Peter Locke (piano), Craig Scott (double bass) and Andrew Dickeson (drums). 

Originally from Sydney Gregg now calls the US home, travelling all over the world to perform the music he loves.

He has recorded eight albums and seven compilation albums with orchestras for ABC Classics and Jazz/Universal Music and has been praised internationally for his original smooth vocal style.

Peter Locke on piano is a highly respected professional performer with many years of experience having played with the Daly Wilson Big Band, Brad Charles Big Band and John Morrison’s Swing City among others.

He was also resident jazz pianist at City Tattersall’s Club, Sydney for around seven years and has backed many of Australia’s top jazz vocalists. 

Craig Scott has been one of Australia's leading bassists for over thirty years.

He began his career in jazz in 1979 with the Keith Stirling Quartet.

Since that time he has been a member of many other jazz groups led by such well-known jazz identities as Don Burrows, James Morrison, and many others. 

Born in Newcastle, NSW, leader of the Trio Andrew Dickeson began his musical education studying flute and percussion before dedicating himself to jazz drumming.

He travelled to New York City in the early 1990s to study with jazz greats Art Taylor and Vernel Fournier and has worked with many of the world’s best contemporary jazz artists.

He returns to New York regularly to perform and study.

This will be a wonderful night for the Down South Jazz Club and an opportunity to see and hear these world class performers, rarely seen away from major city venues – definitely an evening not to miss.

Gregg Arthur and the Andrew Dickeson Trio will be performing at Club Sapphire Merimbula on Thursday April 27. The show will kick off at 7.30pm. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
