Zackerbilks – Jazz at Jamison – 19th June 1pm

The fabulous local traditional Dixieland band, the Zackerbilks, will be the stars of our June ‘Jazz at Jamison’ session. 

This professional eight-piece band of young musicians, led by popular vocalist Miriam Miley-Reid, has a huge following in Canberra. The band is fast becoming Canberra’s leading jazz band, known for it’s high energy and entertaining style. Not only does their music have that vintage Dixieland feel but the musicians love to dress in their best vintage clothing too. 

Expect to hear music from the turn of the century, through to some of today’s popular tunes reworked to sound like a Dixieland cover. This band is guaranteed to have your toes tapping and your hands clapping! 

As a special treat, the band will present their 12-piece orchestra format for the second set. You don’t want to miss a performance from the Zackerbilks!

Free to members and guests of the Southern Cross Club. Lots of lunch offerings are available from noon.

CJC Newsletter – Jun – Jul

Dear CJC members

Our latest newsletter is attached. Not a lot to add since the last one.

We’ve filled the calendar for the remainder of our year at ‘Jazz at Jamison’ – we are thrilled with the line-up.  

The jazz world sadly lost trumpet great Bob Barnard.

We have the CJC AGM coming up on 16 August at CSCC Woden – we hope to see some of you there.

We’ve confirmed the line-up for our gala concert at CSCC Woden – and what a line-up it is! Still confirming a seating plan with the Woden Club before we can release tickets for sale – they haven’t used the long tables that we used to sit at for the ‘Jazz at the Cross’ series for many years now.

We definitely didn’t want everyone sitting theatre style.

Yours in jazz

Linda Wiese
