Blue Reed


Passion Swing and Fire are some of the emotions you will encounter while enjoying the songs from gypsy swing quartet
Blue Reed.


Holding down the low end on double bass is Dave Hart, a seasoned performer in the Cairns region for so many years we forgot to count them. Dave is also a member of iconic Cairns bands Snake Gully and Hot & Wet Swing Set.

Steve Baker 1st guitar, all round good guy and a champion for the arts in all their forms. Not only does Steve perform in the Blue Reed but is a core member of the tablelands gypsy swing big band Django In The Djungle. Steve is also an accomplished singer songwriter.

David Breeze 2nd guitar, a guitarist for all seasons. David has played with some of Cairns most loved acts from Paris Texas
Far Northern Soul Collective, Hot Rubber Glove, Hot & Wet Swing Set & raconteurs.

Kirtley Leigh Payne is no stranger the music scene of Cairns or indeed the world, a performer,educator par excellence ,Kirtley has played with them all and even rubbed shoulders with the famous maestro Stephane Grappelli . Kirtley's flair on the violin is a must see .

Blue Reed play gypsy swing in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Sometimes fast and furious like the Captain Cook Highway on a Friday afternoon or slow and seductive like the Barron River on a Sunday afternoon. In the repertoire you will also find some classics as well as well known tunes given the gypsy swing touch.
