The Story

The swingin-est Be-Bop band in the land.

Now into the 8th year of their Wednesday residency at Uptown jazz cafe, stretching the tunes of the bop masters Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Tad Dameron, Miles Davis and beyond. One of the most remarkable ensembles to come out of the Melbourne be-bop tradition in a long time. Led by Guitar Master James Sherlock, Bopstretch is a highlight of the Be-bop sound - swinging, grooving and bopping the classics from the golden age of modern jazz.
