The Mell-O-Tones

Sydney’s finest jazz and swing musicians come together to perform a sparkling repertoire of classics from the swing-era

Music from the golden age of Broadway and Hollywood, Latin-American cha-cha, rumba and mambo evergreens; and big band versions of the great songs associated with legends like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Fred Astaire.

The 15 piece big band, led by conductor and vocalist Phillip Sametz (a name ABC Classic FM listeners will recognise), is a fixture on the Sydney arts and entertainment scene, performing everywhere from glittering opening night parties, to the Opera House New Year’s Eve celebrations, the Archibald Prize Preview and in annual concert seasons at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace in Cremorne. Their ABC Classics album Non-Stop Flight was nominated for an ARIA award for Best Jazz Album.
