Friday Supper Club with The Three-Handed Beat Bandits

  • Avalon Restaurant 18 Katoomba Street Katoomba, NSW, 2780 Australia (map)

Avalon presents the Friday Supper Club. Join us for live music, dinner or supper & classic cocktails, every Friday night. This week's music to dine to will be provided by The Three-Handed Beat Bandits.

Beautiful to the ear, great for the feet, the Three­-Handed Beat Bandits are the best three-­handed big band in the world. Together, John Stuart and Neill Duncan play guitar, bass, congas, drums and saxophone, along with quirky megaphone vocals. This beat combo swing their listeners through a kaleidoscope of reggae, ska, calypso, funk, swing and klezmer.

Two-handed John Stuart is a master of the seven­-string guitar and conga, switching between driving bass lines, sparkling solos, and hot percussion. One-handed Neill Duncan, who lost his left arm to cancer three years ago, plays a custom-built one­-handed tenor saxophone and an adapted drum kit, his passion and musical imagination flowing like never before. 

Their exotic musical gumbo will steal your heart.
