Jass at Jamison – 14 Oct – Capt Bob’s Station House Seven

Dear members

Just a reminder that the popular Capt Bob’s Station House Seven will be playing at ‘Jazz at Jamison’ this Sunday 14 October. Bob Netting and his band deliver up that great old traditional jazz that we all love. It’s so easy to bop along to, or dance to if that’s your fancy (hopefully the screws are correctly fitted to the dance floor this month!).

The band’s regular trombone player, Joe Epps, recently passed away and replacing him on this occasion will be the excellent muso from Wagga, David Saxon (in case you are wondering who is pictured in the flyer, the trombone player is Ian Baker – he stepped in for the photo). Bob Netting is inviting musos to jam with the band during the last set. We are drawing huge crowds so don’t be too late getting there although we have now secured extra seating for the CJC on tables in front of the band. Music from 1pm.

Just a reminder, too, that renewals are due and members can pay Esme Bracken, our Membership Secretary, at Jamison on Sunday.

Yours in jazz
CJC Committee


Jazz at Jamison – 11th Nov Chris Gildersleeve and his Delta Jazz Band

Our popular Jazz at Jamison sessions for the year conclude with banjoist  – Chris Gildersleeve and his Delta Jazz Band.

Hailing from Sydney, this successful traditional jazz band has been together for some twenty years and it is one of only a handful of bands to hold down a long-term residency, currently playing twice-monthly at Sydney’s Lane Cove Bowling Club.

This six-piece band of seasoned professionals focusses on swinging New Orleans revival jazz, in other words, the music that evolved from the melting pot of music genres that was New Orleans jazz in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Joining Chris will be Wally Temple, reeds; David Cant, cornet/trombone; Gary Kohrmann, double bass; Beverley Baychek, vocals; and special guest Colin Beale, reeds.

This will be a great afternoon of swinging early traditional jazz made all the more authentic by the sultry vocals of gospel singer Bev Baychek.
