The Jazzlab Presents: Checkerboard Lounge

Concert or Performance

14 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

From deep within the veins of Melbourne’s music scene, Checkerboard Lounge has become a cult-like underground institution. The brainchild of renowned singer and drummer Carl Pannuzzo, the band has evolved over thirty years; breathing fire, virtuosity and improvisation into classic soul and blues originals.

Playful and unyielding, Pannuzzo is joined on stage by guitar master Shannon Bourne, Hammond virtuoso Tim Neal, and groove bassist Amos Sheehan. The current line-up features world-class musicianship, unbridled passion inspired by the moment and an almost telepathic ability to create; a powerhouse to be reckoned with.

From standing ovations at Wangaratta Jazz Festival to crammed inner Melbourne pubs, no two shows are the same. Vibrant and unforgettable, Checkerboard are a tour-de-force demanding honesty, integrity and truthful musicianship; the very essence of a live music experience.
