The Graham Wood Commemorative Piano Fundraiser Show

7PM Tuesday, 7th May 2019

Featuring Libby Hammer, Ali Bodycoat, Jessie Gordon, Chris McNulty, Jamie Oehlers, Penny King, Daniel Susnjar, Pete Jeavons, Chris Foster, Simon Jeans, Nick Abbey and more to be announced, this show promises to be an absolute jazz treat! Join us and the cream of the Perth jazz crop to raise funds for The Graham Wood Commemorative Piano!

As many of you will know, we have been fundraising to buy The Ellington a new piano. All ticket sale proceeds from this show will go towards The Graham Wood Commemorative Piano fund. All these wonderful musicians are generously donating their time so that this can happen, so we owe them a humongous thank you!

The Ellington has had the greatest of fortunes to be blessed with custodianship of 3 beautiful full sized concert Steinway & Sons grand pianos for the last 10 years.

We have arrived at a point where we need to bring some fresh life onto the sacred stage of The Ellington. It is something that Graham and his fellow owner Bernard Kong discussed for many years.

With expert counsel from a highly respected panel, including Paul Tunzi, Tom O’Halloran, Harry Mitchell and Grant Windsor, we have arrived at a decision that will support us through another full decade and beyond of high quality music performance at The Club.

The Yamaha S Series we are receiving is a hand built instrument that has been ear marked by Yamaha Australia themselves as a perfect fit for the performance oriented stage at The Ellington.

We are hoping that the arts community of Perth would like to be a part of both The Ellington and Graham’s musical legacy by contributing to this brilliant new centrepiece.

We have recently experienced our 10th Birthday Celebrations and are so grateful for the outpouring of support – without every single patron that has ever walked through the doors of The Club and willingly supported the live music scene in this amazingly creative city of ours, we never would have made it this far.
