Jazz @ Jamison Sunday 8th October

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

This fun band 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 & vocals, David Ridyard on sax & clarinet, Jim Fletcher on drums, Ed Rapo on double bass and Cameron Jones on his gypsy jazz guitar. 

The band has released two hugely successful albums, “There’ll Be Some Changes Made” and “Sweet Substitute” and a third album is in the pipeline. 

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 ‘Jazz at Jamison’.

Latest Newsletter

The latest newsletter is attached, we hope that you enjoy the read.

Your Club is ticking along nicely and Jamison is going well although the last two months have seen quite a few regular members absent. We hope you have had some other great things to do!

The Jamison Club is having to limit bookings for lunch on the day of our gigs as they are becoming very popular with non-CJC members. If our numbers remain low, we will have to reduce our seating allocation. Let’s hope the level of attendances the past two months is just an aberration, you were all on holidays, and we return to normal numbers soon.

Hopefully we see a good crowd at Jamison on 13 August. Thank you as always for your support.

Yours in jazz
