A very funky New Orleans style Marching Band

In the tradition of New Orleans jazz, "Catharsis" bring you an up-tempo and funky sound. From the early jazz of the 20s and 30s to cooler sounds of Miles Davis, they have played at music festivals all around the world. Enjoy jazz as it was originally intended: totally acoustic, totally mobile and totally accessible for all ages. Whether it be creating an atmosphere at a winery, serious listening at a Jazz festival or providing inspiration for the dancers "Catharsis" - consisting of piano, accordionist, percussion, and a variety of brass instruments have been there.

Especially happy to open bridges, send off ships and commemorate buildings, we have been there for The Opening of Stadium Australia, The 1999 AFL Grand Final, Entertaining the crowds before the doors opened at the Myer stock-take sale, The Melbourne festival and The Telstra swimming trials.
