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.

For our first gig back at Jazzlab post lockdown, we will be performing with our Hot 6 line up plus special guest Julie O’Hara on vocals.

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.
