Hello Jazz in Concert at the Village supporters

It’s now just less than a month to the next Jazz in Concert at the Village (Wed Sep 6) featuring local piano legends, Wayne Kelly and Damien Slingsby paying tribute to the great jazz composer and improviser, Thelonious Monk (1917 – 1982). They’ll play, separately and sometimes together, a program of Monk compositions accompanied by Ben O’Loghlin (bass) and Mark Sutton (drums).

Some words from Wayne: ‘To be asked to perform for the hundredth anniversary Monk’s birth and play his unique compositions is an honor and privilege, a delight and a blessing for me, I’m very excited about this concert and am looking forward to be playing with my longtime friends Mark Sutton (drums) and Ben O’Loghlin (bass), Damien Slingsby will be the other pianist. In addition, Damien and I will play some duets and some solo piano Monk tunes. We’re delighted to embark on this adventure into the world of Monk!!!’

It’s going to be an excellent night, the third at our new venue. If you plan to eat the optimum time to arrive is probably around 6.30 and the music will start at 7.30. Food is available from several outlets just outside the concert hall from 6pm. Food and drinks (from the bar) can be brought in.

Please book by emailing me at this address and say if you want to book a separate table or join my tables up the front. There will also be a few armchairs in the front row (first in, first served).

Admission is still $22. Located on the left of the Street Theatre.
