161 - Oobee Doo, I Wanna Be Like You-ou-ou

 
The Jazz Cellar is one of my favourite places to go for a night out in Perth. After entering via a red phone booth hidden around the back of the Salvos you go down the stairs to find this amazing little place full of mismatched tables and chairs and old vintage advertisements. For such a small place they really pack it full of eager jazz fans! As recently as last year in order to be lucky enough to get in you'd need to line up from 4pm to even have a chance of booking a spot. Thankfully they've finally set up internet bookings (although you still need to snap up tickets pretty quick-smart!).  The Corner House Jazz Band have played here every Friday night for the last 20 years (!!) with an energy that you can't help but get caught up in. Good thing dancing is encouraged! They even have their own dancing man who spends the whole night getting all the pretty young girls up to dance (bet he loves his job!).
