This great piano gig has become an institution at the Harmonie German Club and a great night was had!
Bringing together Leo Joseph, Ali Penney, John Black & Wayne Kelly and 2 pianos, it indeed was an extraordinary musical event.
If you missed it, we have four new videos added to the Video Gallery, courtesy of Linda… Enjoy!

It has come to our attention that the venue has changed for the 2016 Newcastle Jazz Festival to be held from Friday 26 August to Sunday 28 August. Due to outrageous condition imposed on the Festival Committee in recent months by the Newcastle Jockey Club, the Committee has been forced last minute to find a new venue. This year’s Festival will now be held at the Newcastle Western Suburbs Leagues Club (Wests) at New Lambton (about 10 mins from the CBD). Accommodation is available in the adjoining motel complex – the West Executive Inn. Ph: 02 4935 1100. When booking, mention the jazz Festival and you can book rooms from $170 upwards. Public buses run from near the Club connecting to Hamilton and the city.
The Committee acknowledges there won’t be as many music room options at Wests but there will still be continuous music Friday 5pm – 10.30pm; Saturday 10am – 10.30pm and Sunday 11am – 5.30pm in the Starlight Room. There will also be bands playing in the Marble Bar & Piano Bar on Saturday & Sunday. The Committee promises there will still be a top range of bands and performers to entertain during the whole Festival period.
Meanwhile, I know some of you are staying at the Adamstown Motor Inn because of its proximity to the Jockey Club and you may well decide to hold your bookings there as the Festival committee is working on organising a complimentary bus pick-up from there (and another nearby motel) each morning and drop-off at night’s end.
I understand full details will be provided in the next Newcastle Jazz Club newsletter.
