Made up of Theo Carbo (guitar), Isaac Gunnoo (bass), and Maddison Carter (drums), the Maddison Carter Trio comes to the Wesley Anne for some hard groove, funk-soul-jazz, a good time, and relaxed vibes. The Wesley Anne residency brings the trio together on the second Sunday of each month to the music of the Meters, Herbie Hancock and more.

Four minds meet in one to play a selection of the finest tunes of the last fifty years. One part swing, two parts modern jazz, and a small amount of originality, the band was forged in a seven year battle to play low volume jazz at an Italian pizza restaurant in Melbourne's north. This iteration features Cheryl Durongpisitkul, Ben Christensen, Mike Panton and Nathan Power.
