The Pearly Shells Big Band With Julie O'hara & Jody Bell


The Pearly Shells are looking forward to bringing their Big Band revue out west to play the Kindred Bandroom, Sat June 15 with special guests Funkbooty featuring Monty Price.

Formed around the turn of the century by double bassist Steve Purcell as a Count Basie style dance band**, The Pearly Shells Swing Orchestra** has evolved over more than 20 years to become a unique Melbourne musical institution with an enormous repertoire of original charts and ties through out Melbourne's musical universe.

 The Pearly Shells mix their own arrangements of 40's and 50's big band music with Jump Blues, Swing Jazz, RnB, Boogie Woogie and Latin styles and play it all with the drive and enthusiasm the music demands and deserves.

Expect music by Ellington, Basie, Goodman, Ray Charles, Louie Jordan, Billy Holiday, Ella Johnson, Xavier Cugat as well as Pearly's songs from their 7 studio albums.


Kindred Bandroom acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land that this event is to be held on, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
