for Cockatoo Calling on Cockatoo Island

PERFORMING ON Saturday 4 December, 2010

2010 performances are now complete.  Thanks so much to our artists and audiences and the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust for making them such a success.  If you would like to be kept in the loop for future performances please do join our mailing list.

My Goodness McGuiness is a synthesis of the broad range of contexts and sounds that modern musicians find themselves in. It's about owning up to the subversive musical influences on an Australian late-generation-X-er; where Icehouse and the Police play alongside Miles Davis. This is not your average jazz band, but many of the sounds may be familiar.   While the group is clearly founded in the jazz tradition, their eclectic choice of material is a more honest reflection of the cultural coffee table.”

Lucian McGuiness – Trombone
Dan Junor – Alto Sax
Aaron Flower – Guitar
