Jazz @ Jamison – 11th Sept – Carolyn Packer and her band the Stompin’ Rhythm Aces

Jazz at Jamison welcomes boogie woogie queen and vocalist Carolyn Packer and her band the Stompin’ Rhythm Aces. 

This fun bad revives the speakeasy party of Prohibition days, where wild dancing and hot jazz were the norm. The band draws its influences from a wide variety of styles – New Orleans jazz, early blues, boogie woogie, swing and gypsy jazz – guaranteed to get the party swinging!

Carolyn hails from the Central Coast and she welcomes every opportunity to get together with her Sydney-based band. The Stompin’ Rhythm Aces is comprised of some of Sydney’s most experienced jazz musicians. Joining Carolyn in Canberra will be Greg Englert on trumpet, David Ridyard on sax & clarinet, Jim Fletcher on drums, Ed Rapo on double bass and Cameron Jones on his gypsy jazz guitar. 

Carolyn Packer’s Stompin’ Rhythm Aces create a party atmosphere wherever they play. Don’t miss what will be a fun afternoon of swinging, toe-tapping jazz at Jamison.

Jazz @ The Cross Gala Concert

Jazz @ Jamison Sunday 14 Aug 1pm

It’s been 3 years since Jazz Alley last played at ‘Jazz at Jamison’ and we are thrilled to welcome them back! Jazz Alley is an amalgamation of five of the best traditional jazz players on the South Coast to deliver the toe-tapping and driving sound that was the music from the early years of jazz when the streets of New Orleans were jumping with the sounds of hot jazz.

Band leader and banjo player Bev Long will be joined by Bob Porter on clarinet & saxophone, Peter Poole on trombone & trumpet, John Roach on drums and Stewart Long on tea chest bass.

Jazz Alley guarantees their audience a great afternoon’s entertainment as you listen and tap along to many of the popular tunes from the early 1900s, an era influenced by such greats as Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong and Kid Ory to name a few. 

Another exciting ‘Jazz at Jamison’ session not to be missed!
