Swing & Jazz available for hire, based in Victoria
Made with the double cream of Circus Oz, Prayerbabies, Checkerboard Lounge and a sweetened, condensed ilk, the debonaireheads of FIRE&THEFT whip sound til it's a swaying suede sensurround.
Ribald and Racy Rhythms!

Other artists who have enjoyed success with their own renditions from FIRE&THEFT's pleasure trove of golden fried hits include the Eurythmics, Led Zepplin, the Who & Shirley Bassey.
&, as for the influences to which FIRE&THEFT tip their fez'z, please count Carmen Miranda, Louis Jordan, Frank Sinatra, Brian Griffin, Michael Buble-Pipe, Kylie and Bizet among their number.
FIRE&THEFT are scientrifficly designed to release the inner swing burglar your sense of dancin' rrRRroMAnce has been shyly guarding against all this time.
The ensemble comprises:
the contratemporary vocal stylings of “Faust” Ian Birdwheel-Frights on famous Framus '61 Riviera;
Paul “Stringali' Jonas via 18th century Italian violin & voce;
Leo,”the lion-loined” Kahans thru white frettless Fender;
335th Dan Kerr powernoodling a silk semi-acoustic Gibson &
Chrisistopheles Lewis all over bowlingball-sparkly kit locked to Tim 'King Conga' Webb whilst warbling.
With seasonal sax, trombone and clarinet FIRE&THEFT can bloom to a 9 piece or be bonsai-ed all the way down thru 5, 4 & 3 piece to a duo, all the while retaining their je ne sais quoi or I don’t know what’s what!
You'll know, it's only Moroccan Roll but, you'll like it.
