The Parlour Social is a 7 piece traditional jazz band that is based in Canberra and services the Canberra Region with audacious early jazz. It is the combination of local Canberra talents, drawing its illustrious members from such local bands as The Zackerbilks, Good Gosh, Dr. Jawbone & The Restless Souls, Brass Knuckle Brass Band and Moochers Inc.
In 2018 the band was offered a weekly residency at Molly Bar on Odgers Lane in the Canberra city centre as ‘The Molly House Band’. This residency is ongoing and is now under the direction of Liam O’Connell. Details can be found here.
