Latest Newsletter

Here is our Latest Newsletter for October – November

The latest newsletter is attached. Two more regular gigs remaining at Jamison for the year – we hope to see good crowds – both bands are terrific! There is a note included in the newsletter about membership renewals. Our new Membership Secretary, Evelyn Foster, will be at ‘Jazz at Jamison’ on 13 October to take any renewals and I will be there to take bookings with payment for our Christmas Party which promises to be a great afternoon.

Yours in jazz

Jazz at Jamison – Captain Bob’s Station House Seven – Sunday October 13

Yes, they are back!  This Illawarra Dixieland jazz band is a favourite in our annual program of events at ‘Jazz at Jamison’, they fill the house every time they play!

Band leader, trumpeter Bob Netting, is thrilled to have a couple of original band members back in the band – Denis Langley on trombone and Dave English on banjo. His best combo ever! It’s foot-stomping traditional jazz from the 1920’s in New Orleans! 

Bob is inviting our local trad musos to join in for a jam in the last set.

This will be a great afternoon of high-energy classic jazz rarely played these days. Best part, it’s free to members and guests of the Canberra Southern Cross Club.

Prohibition jazz event at Albert Hall, Friday, 1 November 2019

Quite a few of you attended the previous jazz concert & dance organised jointly by Canberra Brass & our favourite local trad band, the Zackerbilks. It was a beaut evening of music and dance (you don’t have to dance – some of us just listened!). People bring their own food.

They are holding the next event at the Albert Hall on Friday, 1 Nov 2019.

I have reserved two tables of 10 at this stage for the CJC. I’m happy to organise your names as I did for the previous event. The plan is to make your separate bookings on the Trybooking website. When you have done that, let me know and I will add you to the list for a table.

Please see the details below. Early bird tickets $40.

Yours in jazz

A joint venture of Canberra Brass and Canberra’s most exciting trad jazz band Zackerbilks.
