Jessie Gordon likes her jazz dirty
She looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, but at this year's Fringe Festival, sultry Perth songstress Jessie Gordon will be singing her seductive way through the most risquι music of the 1930s and 1940s.

Jessie, who has just returned from a six-month European tour and is a Fringe World 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Award Winner, will be presenting an evening of delightfully dirty music and comedy at The Ellington Jazz Club

with Dirty Jazz Vintage Cabaret.

In a brand new format, Jessie will be helped out by special guests each night.

"I've done Dirty Jazz for the past two years at Fringe just with me and a piano player," Jessie says.

"This year I wanted to venture into running a cabaret show as an MC, but while also having a live band performing.

"The idea of this show is that the house band will be onstage with all the performers for two, one-hour sets, interacting with the cabaret acts if they feel like it.

"There will be different comedy, vintage dance and vaudeville acts on each night of the show."

The house band features Mark Turner on sax and guitar, Jon Matthews on guitar, Karl Florisson on upright bass and Mike Perkins on drums.

Be prepared for a saucy, smutty, stripping back of the Golden Era of Swing, replete with libations, dark corners for dark deeds, and more food references than you'll know what to do with.

Performances will be held at The Ellington Jazz Club from February 2 to 5 from 10pm to 1am (in two, one-hour sets).

Tickets available at or at a variety of locations around Perth - see adn the FB page.
