For your reading pleasure – Latest CJC Newsletter

Dear CJC members

Please find above a link to your latest newsletter. Lots of photos to share from our terrific Valentine’s Day event. Beware, this newsletter contains a lot of colourful graphics so if you do tend to print it, maybe stick to printing in grey scale! 

There’s a couple of mentions about the Community Rewards Program and the fact that the CJC is a participant in the Program. Because so many of us regularly attend CSCC venues, the return to us of a small % share of  your spend goes an enormous way to keeping us financial enough to meet the costs of our monthly bands. We you haven’t already done so, we really do urge our members to nominate the CJC as their community group of choice. Until 30 June, the return to us is doubled and spends at Snapper will be included in the rewards. 

We hope everyone has a wonderful Easter break and we look forward to welcoming a crowd at Jamison on 11 April. Kid Hank from Sydney is an interesting young band and they really do a great job of playing all the early toe-tapping jazz tunes – their creole jazz really does take you back to the music and sounds of jazz in New Orleans. Robbie Mann will be playing with them and he’s very impressed with their playing. As is our Patron, Paul Furniss, who really enjoys his gig with the band once a month.

I am taking bookings as usual for our next gig. As I mentioned in the newsletter, while it’s not essential to book but if you do, you know that you will have a seat reasonably close to the band. We maybe will not have the dance floor out yet, but we will have some dancing space. A small oversight of the Jamison staff this month saw our very limited dance space overlooked in the setting up. They’ve promised that it wont happen again!

You can also book for the 16 May gig too. Your Committee is thrilled to have our favourite locals playing for us again. In case you were wondering, the name of South Seas Stompers is taken from the band Tony and Ron regularly use when playing at the various festivals and the Australian Jazz Convention. It will be the trad that most of us love.

Yours in jazz
