Rex & Satch

Bass virtuoso Philip Rex and acclaimed vocalist Rita Satch come together for an unmissable evening of R & B, Soul and Jazz hits, in the only Australian show for 2017. Currently based in London, Rita Satch, renowned for her powerfully soulful vocals and musical spontaneity, has spent the last year playing shows and major festivals across Europe and collaborating with UK-based producers for her next album release. As one of Australia’s most in-demand double bass players, Philip Rex has played with artists ranging from US jazz legends Joe Lovano, José James and Johnny Griffin, to Australian icons Renee Geyer, Joe Camilleri and Ross Wilson. With a musical friendship that spans a decade, Rex and Satch have had few opportunities to collaborate since the singer’s relocation to London, and tonight presents a rare chance to see these two masters of soul and groove in action. Complemented by some of Melbourne’s hottest players, the all-star quintet will present classics by the likes of Etta James, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Frank Ocean and Amy Winehouse.
