Sassafras is one of Perth’s premier gypsy jazz groups. Combining toe-tapping swing, breakneck gypsy classics, wistful French ballads and re-worked jazz standards the band’s vibrant live show is performed with the dazzling virtuosity and passion that is intrinsic to the gypsy jazz tradition.
Come along and enjoy Sassafras’ rendition of music from composers such as Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Cole Porter, Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Brel, to name a few.

Sunday Music is FAC’s free weekly live music program. Enjoy a carefully curated line-up of WA’s best musicians every weekend in the beautiful setting of FAC’s grounds. Due to COVID19 event restrictions, Sunday Music will run a little differently at the moment to keep our visitors, musicians and staff safe. The concerts will take place in the Front Garden with a strictly limited capacity. Once full, guests can sit on other grassy areas in the grounds. We recommend you arrive early and settle in for the afternoon. Bring a rug and picnic (no BYO alcohol) to this family friendly event, or enjoy tasty treats from the food vendors and bar on-site. Some chairs provided.
Sunday Music is possible thanks to the ongoing support of Bendigo Bank – Fremantle Community Bank Branch. 2020-21 is the twelfth year of the long-standing partnership. Sunday Music runs every week from October to March.
