Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – Sold Out!

We were sold out again for this night with Pippa. (We even brought in an extra table in the afternoon.)

What a great night it was: Pippa was in fine voice and the band managed to keep up with her. Only a couple of surprises for Pippa but, this time, she had some surprise lyrics for each member of the band. Audience participation, a mystery backing vocalist and even the sound of sleigh bells: we had it all!

Thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a great night.

And, thanks to those who used the booking system – it makes the administration so much easier!

Jazz Notes spring to Burrinja Café

We left Mark, Tony and Frank to hold the fort at the Ringwood RSL while Ann, Kevin, Daniel and Wade played a previously-booked engagement at Burrinja Café.

The beautiful spring day provided an opportunity for some photographs in the garden.

Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – coming in November

Pippa Wilson, Jazz Notes, announcing event
Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes in cabaret at Ringwood RSL on 14 November 2015

We’ve had some pretty special events with Pippa Wilson:

‘great interaction between Pippa and band.’ (John)
‘… with all of you so obviously having so much fun it took the evening to a new level and place.’ (Barry)
‘As usual thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment … lots of fun and great music’. (Janice)
‘Have listened to Pippa many times and haven’t heard her sound better — flute and strings rhythm worked really well’
‘Thank you – a wonderful night, thoroughly enjoyed by all!’

 

At the Ringwood RSL

On Friday, 14 November 2015, we’ll be in the newly-renovated Ringwood RSL.

Ringwood RSL
16 Station St
Ringwood 3134

Doors open at 6:30 and the entertainment warms up at 7:30 with Jazz Notes until 8:00, when Pippa will move the show into top gear.

Together, we’ll take you through a range of jazz, blues and a little gospel with the usual fun and banter that has characterised these shows. And, of course, of course, there’ll be some surprises for Pippa!

This will be the last event for Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes in 2015 so we thought we might include a couple of our favourite Christmas songs.

    Jazz Notes at the Australian Jazz Museum

    In June, Ann and Kevin ran some workshops in the use of technology for gigging musicians. These were conducted at the Australian Jazz Museum.

    Subsequently, Ann and Kevin were asked to play for one of their open days.

    But it grew: on Wednesday, 26 August 2015, the FULL band played at the Museum.

    Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – sold out!

    Pippa Wilson joined Jazz Notes again for a wonderful night of music and fun at the Dandenong Club.

    We had searched early in the year for a new venue and were very excited when we found the Dandenong Club. The management was great to work with this helped make the night one to remember.

    Pippa was in fine form, the band was ready for some fun and the room was full; and the feedback from the audience was great.

    We really love what we do on these nights: playing with some of the nicest people to a receptive and enthusiastic audience.

    We’re hoping to do another with Pippa, later in the year. If you’d like to know when this is on and how to get discounted tickets, please subscribe here.

    Thanks to Marion and Ashley for their help before, during and after the event.

    Sundays with Jazz Notes at the Ringwood RSL

    From Sunday 9 August, Jazz Notes will be playing Sundays 2-5pm at the Ringwood RSL.

    We’ll be playing as a trio and looking to explore some musical colours as well as covering a variety of music.

     

    There’ll be the usual jazz and pop and, if the audience is receptive, might something a bit more classical. Of course, we’ll take requests.

    The Ringwood RSL is located directly over the road from Ringwood Station and the bus interchange. There is also plenty of parking.

    So why not make Sundays at the RSL your new thing!  Nothing like LIVE music to soothe the soul.

    Free entry

    16 Station Street
    Ringwood 3134

     

    At Open Studio again

    Very happy to be invited back to Open Studio.

    Thanks to all the Meetup people who came along.

    Jazz Notes hits the airwaves

    Peter O’Brien of 3ECB (Eastern FM) kindly invited Ann and Kevin to his afternoon radio program.

    We played 5 songs (apparently the first time for live music in their studio) and talked about what we’ve been up to and what’s coming up.

    Jazz Notes returns to Burrinja Café

    Burrinja Café has undergone renovation and change of management. During that time, there was no live music.

    It started with Ann Craig (flute) and Kevin Blazé (guitar). They were joined by Daniel Pickard (bass) and, for the second set, Wade Morgan (vocals).

    Ann Craig Trio at Castlemaine

    The Ann Craig Trio had two sets in stationary venues!

    The first set was in Run, Rabbit, Run which has a central atrium, making it challenging for photography. The Trio was also asked to fill the previous spot, for which we were joined by Ange Strickland (vocals).

    Lot 19 is an art space outside the town and is a good setting for a quiet evening set.
