Event Details

Canberra’s hippest Big Band takes on the timeless songs of Lennon/McCartney in this swingin’ tribute to The Beatles

After 3 sell out concerts during the past 12 months the Blamey Street Big Band is preparing to return to the Harmonie German Club for another innovative production – a performance featuring big band versions of classic Beatles songs! The concert will take place on Saturday 18 November with bookings now open either at the Club or through

Master arranger and principal saxophone player with Blamey Street, Andrew Hackwill, has long been fascinated with the genius of Lennon and McCartney and discovered some time ago how the unique Beatles sound adapts so well to interpretation by the classic big band – saxophones, trumpets, trombones and rhythm section.

The Beatles utilized a piccolo trumpet to bring ‘Penny Lane’ to life and now Andrew Hackwill has gone a few steps further with fabulous swinging arrangements of dearly loved tunes including ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘Lady Madonna’, ‘Hey Jude’, “A Hard Day’s Night’ ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ and a host of other greats. The band will play the famed Michael Buble version of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ and Canberra’s leading jazz vocalist, Leisa Keen, will add her special magic to ‘She Loves You’, ‘Yesterday’ and many others.

‘Do You Want to Know A Secret’? ‘Help!’ Because the secret is out!

Join Conductor Ian McLean and the fabulous 22 piece Blamey Street Big Band for this unique and very special concert – Saturday 18 November, 7.30pm at the Harmonie- German Club in Narrabundah.

Tickets are just $30 for adults and $25 concessions with a table for six available for just $150 (plus Eventbrite booking fee).
