New Nite Owls

Hot Mix of Jazz

Saturday October 27


Miners Tavern

120 Lydiard Street Nth, Ballarat

Be entertained by this very popular band, a great night of Jazz guaranteed.

The New Nite Owls came together in 2014 as the successor to the late Hugh De Rosayro's New Orleans Nite Owls which he had formed in 2005.

Now led by Pat Miller, Hughie's legacy is a hard driving, trumpet-less trad band that just loves to play for dancers, bring your dancing shoes. Their repertoire extends from classic jazz, through swing to show tunes.

The members of the band are: Pat Miller on reeds, Rob Moffatt on trombone, Steve Paix on piano, Simon Vancam on bass and Richard Opat on drums - a wonderful mix of older and younger musicians.

The New Nite Owls are regulars at festivals and Jazz clubs where audiences have loved their great mix of melody and rhythm.
