The car park that is accessed from Maroondah Hwy is for disabled parking only.

More parking is available along Maroondah Hwy and in nearby side streets.

The organisers

When local musicians, Ann Craig (flute) & Kevin Blazé (guitar) formed Jazz Notes, it was to feature the seductive tones of flute (often forgotten in the jazz world) and guitar (the perfect accompaniment for flute).

Although we often perform as a duo, Jazz Notes frequently back singers and perform as a larger band (including Caught In The Act!).

We also organise and stage events – this is our largest to date!

With the Melbourne Music Performers, we have monthly events at the Ringwood RSL as well as larger shows for which we write musical arrangements.
