The Swing Merchants – 25 June

Dear CJC members

Due to delays with the latest newsletter, I’m sending along the flyer for a swing jazz concert at the Southern Cross Club, Woden on Thu 25 June. It’s show only at $27 and an 8.00pm start.

This is an opportunity to support some young jazz musicians who have come together from various musical backgrounds to form a traditional band they hope will have wide appeal. They have been getting a few gigs around Melbourne and seem well-received. They tell me they have heard that the Canberra jazz community is very embracing and they are thrilled to be given this opportunity to play here in front of a large audience (well we hope it’s a large audience!).

The great news is that the Southern Cross Club is prepared to accept phone bookings for this concert if we don’t want to book in person or use Ticketek. You can phone on 6283 7200, 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. For those who don’t like to sit on their own, we will have a jazz table so ask to sit there when booking.


Yours in jazz

Yazzbar Times Update!

Please note we have changed the time for the tastings to 8.00 pm, not
7.00 pm, to make it easier for some to get to them.

Whiskey’s of the World tasting on Friday 12 June (8.00 pm) is definitely on – 5 places left.

Jodie Herbert is back this Saturday night – I forgot Angela is going to the Merimbula festival – she played at Yazzfest and at the bar earlier last year.

Revised Yazzzbar Times HERE.

Camilla won the typo comp

A chuckle

A ukulele player and his wife were woken at 3 o’clock in the morning by loud knocking on the door.
The ukulele player got up, went to the door and found a banjo player standing in the pouring rain.
“I need a push”, said the banjo player.
“Not a chance”, said the ukulele player, “it’s 3 o’clock in the morning”, slammed the door and went back to bed.
Banjo Player“Who was that?” asked his wife.
“Just some banjo player bloke asking for a push”, he answered.
“Did you help him?”, she asked.
“No, I did not, it’s 3 o’clock in the morning and it’s pouring rain outside” he said.
“Well, …. you have a short memory”, said the wife, “don’t you remember, about three months ago when we broke down, and those two nice young men helped us?. I think you should help him and you should be ashamed of yourself”.
The ukulele player does as he’s told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain.
He called out into the dark night, “Hello, are you still there?”.
“Yes” comes back the answer.
“Do you still need a push?”, called the ukulele player.
“Yes please”, came the reply from the dark.
“Where are you?”, asked the ukulele player.
The banjo player replied, “Over here on the swing”.
