“Johnston has always understood that jazz history is a rich resource rather than a liability, and with this band, he immerses himself almost completely in this era of energised and good humoured dance music… A nuanced and blended sonority, combined with an emphasis on pinpoint arrangements and

concise solos.”  – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Those who have enjoyed the spirited live shows before will know they perform in the “Territory Band” tradition of Kansas City, Chicago and New Orleans jazz of the ’20s and ’30s. Leading his own bands as well as performing with others, his work as a composer and musician extends across theatre, dance, film, and music. The Greasy Chicken Orchestra is his high-energy ensemble with some of Sydney’s leading jazz musicians, playing blues, ragtime, and the earliest incarnations of jazz.

The GCO repertoire includes music from Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Lil Hardin Armstrong, The John Kirby Sextet, Raymond Scott, Scott Joplin, Don Redman, and Duke Ellington.

Join us for an unforgettable night of music as we welcome this unique band back to the Foundry616 stage.
