Dave Panichi Big Band at Lazybones

Australian-born and Marrickville local, Dave Panichi, is internationally respected as a virtuoso lead trombonist, soloist, session player, composer and arranger. 

Dave’s original compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by, among many others, the Buddy Rich Big Band, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Blood Sweat & Tears, James Morrison, The Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra (JMO), Ralph Pyl’s Sydney All¬ Star Big Band, Ten Part Invention and the Danish Radio Big Band.

While distinctively Australian, Dave’s music pays full respect to the jazz tradition and is infused with the rich flavours and modern influences of the two decades he spent living and working in New York alongside the world’s leading musicians.

Dave has recently returned from the US, where he recorded a DVD of his original big band compositions and arrangements performed live with an all-star group he assembled of New York’s finest musicians. “Paradigm” is out now.

historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and musician. Learning singing, percussion and guitar is all part of a griot’s life.

His talent and charisma made him a guru of the senegalese musical scene joining famous groups in the eighties, L’Étoile 2000 de Dakar and the legendary Orchestra Baobab

His own particular style, mbalax dagou, is inspired from mbalax, the popular music of Sénégal. His success crossed borders over Senegalese borders and he toured extensively throughout Europe as an independent artist.

The Protesters at Lazybones

Supported by Big Sky Mountain

So what happens when members of Watussi, King Tide, The Subterraneans, The Melbourne Ska Orchestra and more come together to play? These musicians bring their mix of tastes and cultures to meet on common ground and with their collective love of reggae and a firm handle on the street they create the sounds synonymous with a small Caribbean island and set out to play it across the largest island in the world.

The Protesters' songs espouse a strong commitment to social and environmental justice. Brown’s trenchant creations are offset by smooth and soulful old school reggae riddims, fuelled by classy arrangements featuring a full complement of horns. Pat Powell, delivers each message with urbanity, belying the scarcely concealed contempt between the lines.

Their music can be described as healing, enlightening or even cathartic, either way the positive vibrations of The Protesters reach out to all.

Chosani Afriqué at Django

Chosani Afriqué at Django

The beaming smile of Pape Mbaye is as well loved as his wide musical talents. It’s an infectious smile that seems to go hand-in-hand with the West African rhythms that lie at the root of his music. Pape Mbaye, and his eight-piece band Chosani Afrique, bring some of the magic of West Africa to their audience – a night of Latin, reggae and jazz, inspired and led by this uncontainable master percussionist. Captivating and hypnotic, these are the sounds of a culture steeped in magic, ritual and a strong spirituality. They’re the sounds that bring people together, that celebrate, commemorate and rejoice a world of music from jazz to R’n’B to pop. And they’re the sounds that Pape has made since childhood.


Sydney’s favourite boutique venue, and home to the world’s finest Singer/Songwriters, World Music, Jazz, Folk, Blues, Cabaret, Comedy and other acts from Australia and beyond.

From the folks that brought you QIRKZ…a friendly space where camels roam free – a multi-generational space where young and old are welcome! (under 18’s do need to be accompanied by an adult). And where the music is curated to showcase the most wonderful acts from around the world.
