The Ozcats

Yesterday I wrote about a photographic exhibition, From The Bandstand. The photos were all taken by musician and photographer, Ron Falson. Please do read yesterday's entry! At top is one of Ron's photographs, of Australian singer Johnny O'Keefe, taken at the Sydney Stadium in 1958.

At the time of his death last year, Ron was leader of a jazz band called The Ozcats. In fact, Ron died at a gig they were playing.

The Ozcats played at the exhibition opening. You can read all about them by clicking here. And all about Ron Falson by clicking here.

And while you're at it, why not have a listen to Ron and Gill's grandson, Sam Sparro - by clicking here , and here .


  1. Just had a look at the exhibition. Well worth a look if anyone happens to be near Macquarie Street. Some of the portraits are stunning.

  2. Wow! I second J Bar and thank you for sharing. I love Sam Sparro, now I'll have to learn more about his family :]
