Gumnut Stompers

Gumnut Stompers
The gumnut Stompers trio formed in January 1987 in response to the need of a small, acoustic, mobile and entertaining jazz band on the newly launched paddle steamer PS Decoy.

With John on double bass and vocals, John on banjo (plus magic and vocals) and Ross on clarinet and saxophones, the group with an over 20 year stint on PS Decoy, are still working hard with an invitation to perform at the Edinburgh International Jazz Festival in 1993, a residency at the Golden Sands Resort, Penang, Malaysia, a 5 year residency at Sardis restaurant, also a residency at the Perth Casino, with a return visit to the Edinburgh Festival in 2007.

Meanwhile, the Stompers have performed at countless private functions in and around Perth-- including private parties, concerts, weddings, corporate functions, jazz clubs and conferences. They have performed classical pieces on stage at the Concert Hall as entertainment for University’s graduation ceremonies over a number of years. One highlight being, playing for the King and Queen of Malaysia on their visit to Australia.

Recently a top trumpet player has been included which gives the band a larger sound. The Stompers are equally at home performing on-stage, or wandering from group to group at a party or restaurant, playing requests in their unique style.

Musical preferences are the jazz greats—Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Jellyroll Morton, Scott Joplin, George Gershwin and the like, but they have very eclectic tastes and can provide folk, latin, classical, and a large range of other styles.

The band is available for anything from festival appearances, to roving performances in shopping centres, to private and corporate functions.
