Twilight Jazz at Montalto: Peninsula Summer Music Festival
A Mornington Peninsula Summer Music Festival favourite, this night is set in the stunning surrounds of Montalto. Soak in the sunset surrounded by famous sculptures as you tap your toes to the infectious rhythms of The Hoodangers.
The Hoodangers’ music is informed by the tradition of the jazz art form and played by gifted and widely experienced musicians who bring a consciousness, skill and passion to the music.
Possessing a relentless, thumping energy, they successfully draw on a rich jazz tradition, embracing it, and morphing it into something completely their own. Their influences are as diverse as their musical moods, from turn of the century New Orleans jazz to post-2000 genre-mix-match pop.
Jessica Nicholas of The Age newspaper described The Hoodangers as "performing with such energy and wit that it's impossible not to feel this music is the product of current culture rather than moth-eaten memories... their aim isn't just to play music but to revel in the sounds they're creating, to push themselves into places they've never been before, and to let loose the Siberian tigers of their imagination."
We can't wait to welcome this high octane jazz performance to the lawn at Montalto.
Settle into a three-course meal at our Good Food Guide-hatted restaurant, relax over a shared meal seated in our beautiful Piazza cafe or recline on the lawn with a takeaway platter from Montalto Piazza.
