Jazz At The Lake 2023 is coming

As Melbourne emerged from lockdown in early 2022, we held the first Jazz At The Lake at the Ringwood Lake Park’s sound shell.

The event was attended by over 600 people of all ages, enjoying picnics, dancing, lots of smiles and all bound together by the live music.

The audience told us that they loved it and wanted it again. So, we’re doing it again: on Sunday 26 February 2023, 11am-8:30pm.

Get more information about Jazz At The Lake 2023.

We are currently seeking sponsors and donations to support the event.

You can see photos from Jazz At The Lake 2022 here.

DR Big Band with Rick Correnza

Pippa with the Jazz Notes Showband at the Victorian Jazz Club

We were thrilled to be invited back to the VJC for a very special gig with Pippa.

The Jazz Notes Showband included the Craig Schneider on piano, Leon Heale on bass, Simon Atkinson on drums, Ann & Kevin & the wonderful Pippa Wilson. For this event we asked Vincent Bradley to join us on trumpet (and other brass) as well as vocals!

Great audience, lovely venue. much fun!

Thanks to the organisers and Gordon for making us sound so good.

We’re hoping to be back again in 2021.
