Every Wednesday, live jazz takes over the Cricketers Arms in Surry Hills when guitarist Arthur Washington storms with his Sexytet. That's Arthur and two other guitarists — his brother, Jerry, and mate, Jack Ray — along with bassist Matt Lamb, plus saxophonists Ross Harrington and Chris O'Dea.

They bust out jazz classics, like George Gershwin's 'Our Love Is Here To Stay', Frank Perkins' 'Stars Fell On Alabama' and Carl Sigman's 'Crazy He Calls Me', and transform them into long, hard-swinging jams. Special guests join in most nights.

The free gigs starts at 7.30pm and kicks on for three sets. That gives you plenty of time to work your way through the Crix's craft beer on tap selection and tuck into some solid pub grub.
