Jazz at Jamison – 13th February

The “Roaring 20s” comes to ‘Jazz at Jamison’ in February with renowned trumpeter Geoff Power and his Great Gatsby Orchestra!

Don’t miss this acclaimed 11-piece orchestra, playing hot jazz, dance music and novelty songs from the 1920s and 1930s, and into the Swing Era.

You’ll hear music from Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Al Jolson, Bix Beiderbecke, plus tributes to the great Australian bands and players.

Geoff Power is one of this country’s most accomplished jazz musicians and his Great Gatsby Orchestra is a project dear to his heart with 4 members of his very talented family joining him in the line-up. 

On this special first appearance in Canberra, the band will include the hugely popular piano whizz, Robbie Mann.   

The band continues to play to rave reviews and it has just released a new CD. 

We are thrilled to welcome this wonderful collection of musicians to ‘Jazz at Jamison’. Bookings are highly recommended.

Lots of lunch offerings available from noon.

Jamison Cancelled for this Sunday

Dear CJC members

We know that many members are going to be hugely disappointed but, regretfully, we have to inform you that Covid has struck again and we have been forced to cancel Sunday’s ‘Jazz at Jamison’. The band leader and another band member have been declared high-risk contacts and are isolating, forcing the band to withdraw from our Sunday gig. 

Given the short notice we are unable to find a replacement band and postponing wasn’t an option. Given, too, that because of the large number of active Covid cases in our community at present, many of our members had already decided to skip our January gig anyway, your Committee has decided that a cautious approach is necessary at this time and that it would be wise to cancel the January gig. Heaven forbid that our Jamison gathering becomes a Covid super spreader event!

We hope everyone stays safe and well and we see a huge crowd back at Jamison on 13 February for the fabulous Geoff Power and his orchestra.

Yours in jazz
