Sarge & the Moose are a three piece band consisting of trumpet & double bass, guitar & vocals. Performing an eclectic mix of jazz, swing and blues, their dulcet tones are influenced by the likes of Billie Holiday & Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. Let your toes tap to some Honeysuckle Rose, dance away to Sway or just be swept up in the sweet sound of This Masquerade.Sarge (Jess Sargeant) & the Moose (Ben Wilby & Steve Collins) all hail from different backgrounds – the teacher, the builder & the doctor. A chance meeting and a mix of musical tastes culminated in a unique sound and retro feel. They have played many local wineries and community events in and around Bendigo for over seven years.
