As their name suggests, My Sauce Good cook up a tempting array of slow cooked soulful folk, Jazz and Swing from nostalgic bygone eras. With femme fatale front lady Laura Brozky at the helm this trio takes you on a journey from the dark allies of Mexico to the underground bars of gay Paris and everywhere in between.

Argentinian-born Brozky casts her beautiful vocal spell, singing a combination of Spanish, French, Italian, Hebrew and English. Her unusual upbringing starting on a kibbutz in Israel and later arriving in Australia as a young girl has, she said, brought her closer to the Latin American folk and tango music her parents would play. Brozky states “I sing about stories that resonate with my own personal journey”. This multi-faceted essence is evident in Brozky’s deep feminine strength and the way she woos the crowd with sincerity and poise.

Violin and viola maestro Veren Grigorov, originating from Bulgaria sets the pace with a combination of plucking and bowing. He has toured, performed and composed music for TV and theatre productions over a number of years. Grigorov studied at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, Vienna and Hanover and has most recently played with Four Play and Arabesk. Such a wealth of experience can be sensed through the layers of sound that emanate from his instruments.

Australian-born of Dutch decent, composer/arranger Dirk Kruithof plays a vibrant guitar accompaniment. "I came from a punk rock background and grew to love swing and other music with similar energy levels to what I was playing in those bands." Not surprisingly, he maintains the momentum with great gusto, driving the evening to levels of musical delight. Kruithof has been on the Sydney circuit with local bands Waiting for Guinness, Gypsy-dub-sound-system and On the Stoop.

What sets My Sauce Good apart from their contemporaries is their clever use of dark narratives and tales of the sordid underground bohéme. Their dynamic repertoire includes witty originals, French Swing, soulful Latin-American folksongs, Jazz from the 1920’s, a haunting Hebrew lullaby and aptly appropriated contemporary tunes. With tunes ranging from Tom Waits to the Andrews Sisters surprisingly we are left thinking about the ghostly murderess who killed her family in a jealous rage and promiscuous ‘Johnny’ the cad who got around Pigalle leaving a hoard of broken hearts in his wake. It makes perfect sense that this group is set to take on Europe on a grand tour in July/August this year.

So on a winter’s night what better way to intrigue the mind and warm the cockles of your heart, mind and belly with a generous serving of My Sauce Good.

Stay tuned for their tasty Australian tour later in the year!

WHEN trio My Sauce Good entered the world music scene in 2008 they immersed themselves in the past.

With a lead singer, a guitarist and a violinist, they reinterpreted songs of the 1930s and 1940s, as well as composing original music.

Their style of music falls under the world music genre - hardly surprising considering Argentinian-born vocalist Laura Brozky is fluent in Spanish, Hebrew and English, and also sings in other languages. She described the band’s sound as more contemporary and less stagnated than traditional world music.

The trio will perform in the Cafe Carnivale series at the Zenith Theatre on February 12.

“We put the music through a washing machine and give it our flavour,” said Brozky, 34, of Darlinghurst.

“Cafe Carnivale is unbelievable. North Shore audiences are fortunate,” she said. “From My Sauce Good audiences can expect some original music, a bit of tango, and French swing. Bring your dancing shoes because there will also be some dancey songs, as well as some soulful listening music.”

The band released a self-titled album in 2010 and has another on the way, following on from a successful summer tour of Europe.

Guitarist/composer Dirk Kruithof, 38, of Darlinghurst, became involved in jazz and gypsy music after a stint in rock bands.

“In My Sauce Good we just play the stuff we like,” Kruithof said.

Violinist Veren Grigorov, 43, of Surry Hills, was born in Bulgaria. He migrated to Australia in 1980, and studied classical violin at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music high school. He said audiences would be surprised by the full sound the band produced with a minimum of instrumentation.

Their infectious style speaks of urban experiences and of universally shared immigrant stories harking back to the bands South American and European roots.

With chanteuse Laura Brozky and Dirk Kruithof on electric guitar at the helm, My Sauce Good will take you on a journey from the dark alleys of Buenos Aires to the underground bars of Sydney and everywhere in between.
The group's international appeal has ensured they have been ecstatically received on their recent tour of Europe, playing to enthusiastic festival and venue crowds in Amsterdam, Florence,Paris, London, Berlin, Corsica and throughout Ireland.

“As their name suggests, My Sauce Good cook up a tempting array of slow cooked soulful folk, Jazz and Swing from nostalgic bygone eras…. what better way to intrigue the mind and warm the cockles of your heart, mind and belly with a generous serving of My Sauce Good” (Jessika Steiner, ArtsHub).
