Jazz musician excited to strum strings at Condong

SMOOTH as a good drop of whiskey jazz musician, George Washingmachine, and his band Feel the Manouche, will delight all ears listening at the Condong Bowling Club next week.

The July 26th gig will see one of the most sought out Sydney jazz entertainers perform originals and covers.

Washingmachine said he was not stranger to strings and had been strumming them since he was a young lad.

"I'd say I was 9 when I started to learn," he said.

"I started with classical violin, my mother was a classical guitarist and her best friend taught me how to play."

He's recently returned from a European tour and is ready to delight Aussie fans.

Feel the Manouche has five members including his sons Arthur and Jerry, who are also talented jazz musicians.

"It's always a thrill to be playing with my sons," he said.

The band are no strangers to the Tweed, Washingmachine remembers playing at the now closed Murwillumbah Bowls Club.

To book tickets call Virginia on 02 6677 7172.

The gig starts at 7.30pm on July 26.
