The Escalators are known to many of us on the East Coast of Australia. Whether it’s at one of their regular gigs in Batemans Bay or in their hometown of Milton, or at a wedding. We have come to know and love their inimitable sounds that fuses Jazz, Soul and Ska.
The band have spent years cutting their teeth playing standards such as The Girl From Ipanema, Moondance, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and Summertime to name just a few. Although these are standards the band always manage to put their own twist on each track bringing something new and unique.
Their debut EP Felix featured all of the above but now it’s time for the world to hear just what the band are made of. Having recieved a grant from EscapeArtsFest the band headed into the studio to record a 7 track album and the result is From The Hip. The album is made up of 7 original tracks and 2 jazz standards.
Their plan is to launch the new album at The Milton Theatre on Saturday January 30th 2016. But they need your help.
In order to put on the Launch Party they have started a Pozible campaign to raise the funds. So head on over to their Pozible page and make a pledge.
