More details ↓

Led by local chromatic harmonica player Chris Maunders, this new ensemble navigates as one through jazz standard repertoire as they create a distinctive ensemble sound. Maunders plays his unique horn with tonal qualities inspired by Clifford Brown, Lester Young and Toots Thielemans yet moves in a way of his own. Expect tunes from Billy Strayhorn, Bud Powell and Bernie McGann.


We are very happy to announce the release of our first album 'Catania' this December. Come join us for a lovely and intimate night at The Brunswick Green.

Special guest to be announced. Put it in the diary and lets handle the crap out of the Bruny Green!

The Handle Bars really know how to handle bars. Their music echoes back to the glory days on Bourbon St, New Orleans when jazz was hot and the beers were cold.

Expect stomping Kansas City blues, red hot dixieland and shuffling jump jive from this outfit and no doubt a good time in a bar near you.
