Axle Whitehead - 01 July 2022
APRA nominated singer Axle Whitehead is back in Australia.
Axle is an accomplished performer, TV presenter and actor both here and in the US but it's music where his heart really lies, and so he's back by popular demand at Bird's after a sold out show a few weeks back with Steve Sedergreen's world-class trio.
One of Melbourne's most charismatic and well-known jazz pianists, Steve is renowned for his warm, authentic and inviting style - with the audience as well as with his fellow musicians.
Steve and Axle have played together numerous times over the years at clubs like Bennett's Lane, Dizzy's and The Basement in Sydney. Whilst in USA Axle played famous venues such as The Green Mill in Chicago and the Baked Potato in LA between acting jobs.
This will be a night that shows Axle’s eclectic taste drawing from many different styles of music. Expect to enjoy jazz and popular funky tunes from Vince Jones and Kurt Elling to Amy Winehouse and Jeff Buckley, together with a few originals.
