If you’re a fan of red wine and smooth tunes, you don’t want to miss this.

It’s the first time Good Oil has performed at Uxbridge Arts and Culture Centre, but the six-piece jazz and blues band is set to leave a stellar first impression on Friday night’s audience.

From frequent gigs at the annual Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival to performances at Coopers Creek Winery and Sky City, the talented group are regulars on the music scene and revel in the opportunity to play live.

Good Oil was formed in 2006 by lead man Dave Peryman and quickly established an accomplished and vibrant playlist of jazz/blues and easy-listening covers, including music from some of the greats, such as Frank Sinatra, Eric Clapton and Amy Winehouse.

The two-hour performance will entertain and showcase the best of Good Oil’s repertoire – from masterfully crafted originals written primarily by Dave Peryman to an extensive list of well-known and loved blues and jazz covers thrown in the mix.

The band currently has six members, with Dave Peryman on keyboards and vocals, Katrina King on vocals, Keith Rowlands on drums, Peter Jackson on bass, Simon Berry on saxophone and Luca Cipoletta on jazz guitar.

From rock to opera and musical theatre, each of the group members have an extensive and varied musical history that combines for a spectacular live performance.

Grab yourself a glass of red from the Uxbridge cafe on the night and invite a friend or two along for what will be a night to remember.

The show starts at 8:00pm at the Uxbridge Arts and Culture Centre and tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
