Josh Bennier introduces Modular and more

Can’t get out? We’re bringing the gigs to you!

Table 19’s online gigs are our response to the way COVID-19 has affected live music. Venues shut, bands unable to play… and isn’t this when we need great music, more than ever?

These curated concerts by Australian jazz and improvising musicians will keep the music in your ears. 

And don’t forget to support the artists by purchasing their music if you can. We recommend Bandcamp. We find it an excellent user experience and we understand from the musicians that it’s also got one of the best revenue models for them – giving them a higher percentage of the sale price than others. The lack of gig income has a huge impact on musicians. We can help alleviate that with even a small purchase. Thank you!

What are we listening to?

Melbourne-based trombonist Josh Bennier has curated this online concert that includes tracks from his his November 2019 release Modular and a forthcoming release Tuckerbox.
