The Ali Bodycoat Trio

The Ali Bodycoat Trio has held epic residencies in Western Australia's hippest venues, topping a 17-year record at the Subiaco Hotel in its hay-day. For the hugely anticipated Jazz By the Bay 2018, Ali is joined by two of Perth's busiest and best jazz musicians, Chris Foster on keyboard, and Shane Pooley on double bass. Having worked together as musicians and bonded as dear friends for over twenty years, this trio brings a stunning combination of mellifluous music, honed and delivered by three of WA's best.

Continuing this trio's jazz journey, they will perform at Rustico - Hay Shed Hill, on Sunday 3 June.
