Ruby’s Festive Socials: Garfish


WHEN: 6pm – 10 Dec 2021

COST: $20 - $25

TICKETS: Book now

Formed in 2011, Garfish is the brainchild of trumpet player Nick Garbett (The Vampires, The Strides). Their music is a dedicated meditation on the instrumental style pioneered by old world Jamaican masters such as Sly and Robbie, Tommy McCook, Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, where jazz language meets the Afro-Caribbean rhythms of Kingston Jamaica. Garfish has taken this sound to a new level in Australia, featuring some of Sydney’s most creative and groovy musicians stretching out over hypnotic reggae beats.

Nick Garbett (trumpet) James Greening (trombone) Matt Keegan (saxophone) Carl Dewhurst (guitar) Robbie Woolf (organ) Winston Stephenson (bass) Declan Kelly (drums)
