Jazz, Phil Hatton and The MadHattons, Perth


Saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist Phil Hatton is a Perth native and was a member of many Perth bands including the Magic Dream Big Band, Nooky Hot Six, Swan City Jazzmen, Fine and Dandy (leader), Downbeat and The Accord before heading to the USA in 1995. He has recently returned to Australia after spending 12 years working as a professional musician and music teacher in the USA where he was a featured artist at over 50 jazz festivals. He has a Master's Degree in Music and is currently leading his own band "The Madhattons", is musical director of the South Perth Lions Big Band and Junior Music Programme and a member of 5 other Perth Bands. The Madhattons is the Perth version of the band he lead in the USA, featuring some of Perth?s finest: Kim Anning on guitar; Benn Hodgkin on trumpet; Rob Hyner on piano; Dave Gryl on drums and Mal Mah on bass. They also work with an excellent female vocal trio, the Divine Miss M's when the occasion demands.

This has to be not only one of the classiest but also one of the most versatile and experienced bands in town as it is capable of playing not only swing, bebop and contemporary jazz but also 50's rock and roll and 60's and 70's rock and pop for your wedding, party or corporate function. The "Divine Miss M's" consists of three excellent singers, Cathy Mueller, Joyce Mather and Natalie Mason who sing individually but also in 3 part harmony. Included in their repertoire are the great songs of the Andrew's sisters.
