The Sweet Lowdowns are a young three-piece hot-club jazz band, originating
in Canberra, now based in inner Melbourne.

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

The line-up includes Liam O'Connell (guitar), Richard Mander (string bass), and Sandra Talty (drums and/or vocals). Both Sandra And Liam have been playing together for over 6 years. Each is becoming quite well-known in the Australian classic jazz scene, having played at concerts and jazz festivals in four states with some of Australia's finest jazz musicians, including Bob Barnard, John Morrison,


Graeme Bell, and the late Tom Baker.



The band often invite a guest lead instrument player, such as Sam Parry (trumpet), or Michael McQuaid (reeds).



The hot-club jazz style describes a tight, rhythmical swing feel, often


played by jazz legends such as Django Reinhardt, Benny Goodman, and Stefan


Grappelli. The sound of the Sweet Lowdowns is reminiscent of these


musicians, and also of the sound of the 20's-40's. Playing both well-known


and little-known jazz tunes with a variety of tempos and dynamics, the Sweet


Lowdowns offer an extensive repertoire, perfect for restaurants, cafes,


dinner music, dancing, wedding receptions, birthdays, etc.
