Event Details

Energetic and exciting trumpet player Dan Mclean needs no introduction! He is the cream of the hot swing musicians in Canberra, leading his hot 5 and big band and playing to packed dance floors in our nations capital! This is his first weekend playing in Melbourne, and he’s teaming up with mischievous Hetty Kate for an evening of beautiful luscious slow tunes to ease you out of the first exciting night of MLX 2015 and get you ready for a weekend full of fantastic music and dancing.

Hetty Kate is one of Australia’s first call swing singers for lindy-hoppers and blues dancers, and has performed for swing and blues events in New York, Boston, Seoul and Singapore this year alone. With her clear tone, phrasing, sense of timing and repertoire of classics and curios (with the odd ‘ad-lib’ lyric thrown in for good measure) Hetty has been described as having a ‘natural musicality’ and is gearing up to release her seventh album titled ‘The Umbrella Man’. This is an album of hot swinging unknown gems and well loved standards from the 30s and 40s, and ‘The Umbrella Man’ features an all Canberra band lead by trumpet player Dan McLean.
