A note from our friend Geoff Page….

Hello Jazz at the Village supporters

It’s just on three weeks until the next concert, on Wed May 2. It features the Tate Sheridan/Victor Rufus Quartet (SYD/CBR).

Victor Rufus (guitar) and Tate Sheridan (piano) in Tale of One City (note the Dickens reference) will be playing duo music (their own compositions and others) inspired by recent trips to New York, sometimes known as the Big Apple. In the second set they will be joined by Brendan Keller-Tuberg (bass) and Jamal Salem (drums) for some quartet arrangements. Tate is also well known for his singer-songwriting these days but here he will be devoted to the contemporary jazz with which he first made his name. Though still young, Victor has been a stalwart of the Canberra jazz scene for some years now and has also toured overseas.


I look forward to seeing you there. Please book with me at this address. Note too that booking guarantees you a seat but the actual seating is unallocated so it’s best to arrive a little early and keep seats for your friends. Food and drink can be brought in from suppliers nearby. Doors open at 6 and the music starts at 7.30.

All the best
