Marty's Juke Joint brings together Rock' n Roll, Jump Blues, Swing and a mixture of hep-cat Jive, all stemming from the earliest rock and roll styles of the late 1940's and early 1950's.

Think of the rollicking music of that era, literally the birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the songs of Fats Domino, Louis Prima, Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry, Wanda Jackson, Bill Haley and you'll have an idea where their style lies.

Formed by double bass player, Marty Forrer, the band features rhythm guitarist Ian Turbitt, Jackie Gibson on vocals, on electric guitar - a veteran of the local music scene - Richard Nicholson, drummer Darryl Jones provides the essential driving backbeat along with Peter Charlton - Jones almost doing the hand-jive on piano.

This will be a great concert to celebrate another great season of Summer in the Park!
