Bird's Basement Octet

From September, every Monday at Bird's, we will have our new regular show: The Bird's Basement Octet. This band is conducted by Maestro Gianni Turcio.

About Gianni Turcio

He has worked for Television channels 7, 9 and 10, and in the recording field he has played for many film soundtracks under the direction of composers Bruce Rowland, Jerry Goldsmith., Brian May, Tommy Ticho and many others, as well as being himself Producer and Musical Director for numerous recordings.

In February 2012 Maestro Gianni Turcio was appointed to assist Maestro Ennio Morricone, during his appearance at the Perth International Festival.

Turcio is the founder and Musical Director of “ The Melbourne Italian Ensemble”, playing traditional Italian music, “ I Musici di Melbourne”, a string chamber orchestra and the latin-jazz influenced group “ Kerberos”.

It is an honor and a pleasure to have Maestro Gianni Turcio involved artistically at Bird's Basement. We are certain that your Mondays nights at Bird's willl now feel more like Friday nights.
