Perth Jazz Society says
“You wanna do some livin’ before you die. Do it down in New Orleans…” — Dr. John

The Late Night Organ Donors combine a groove-based greasy funk sound straight out of the Big Easy with modern jazz fusion flavours. Influenced by New Orleans staples such as The Meters, Dr John, Robert Walter and Galactic, the group features a mix of standards from the contemporary funk songbook as well as standout original compositions.

They’re are a new group to the Perth live music scene, bringing together four musicians jonesing for some good old fashioned New Orleans funk. Saxophonist Marc Osborne and drummer/ percussionist Holly Norman, longtime collaborators in another of Perth’s New Orleans-inspired projects (Junkadelic Brass Band), join keyboardist Jon Fernandes (Odette Mercy and Her Soul Atomics, Jon Fernandes Trio) and guitarist Jacob Mitchell to serve up a blend of New Orleans funk favourites, original jazz-fusion instrumental arrangements, tasty improvisation and the odd saucy vocal tune.
