The Cope Street Parade are five fine fellas. Their music is fiery and fun and you’ll be dancin’ till the evening is done.

This band casts the spell of dance halls and speakeasies while the hot sounds of New Orleans melds with gypsy.

From Sydney, the Parade play original music with a touch of the old and a glimpse of the new. You’ll be bound to your feet when the Parade rolls through.

Formed in 2009, the Parade has performed at major music festivals and venues across Australia, such as the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, Sydney Festival, Bellingen Jazz Festival, Manly Jazz Festival, Jazzgroove Summer Festival and at heaps of other great dives. The band has also been lucky enough to have collaborated with Lulo Reinhardt, Christa Hughes, Geoff Bull and Bob Barnard. The Parade’s eponymous debut album was released in 2010 with the second is in the pipeline for early 2012.

This weekend the Parade pass through Fingal Head with a stopover at the Sheoak Shack on Saturday.
