Trumpeter and vocalist Cameron Smith is making a special appearance at Jazz at Jamison with his latest project, The Magnificence jazz band. Blending the talents of musicians from the highly entertaining band Moochers Inc and one of Canberra’s hottest traditional jazz band, Low Society, Cameron has created a brilliant six-piece New Orleans inspired jazz band.
United by their passion to make every performance a fun time for both themselves and their audience, this very talented combination will have you laughing and jumping in your seat.
Expect an afternoon of fast, funny almost-traditional jazz and a selection of New Orleans inspired original tunes. Joining Cam will be Thomas Manley on clarinet, John Gosling on trombone, Liam O’Connell on banjo, Owen Cooper on double bass, Mitch Preston on washboard and percussion.
Cam is making a brief appearance in Canberra on his way to the Merimbula Jazz Festival and he’s thrilled at the opportunity to play with his old mates and to show off some new tunes.
