Jazz'n'Joe will showcase exemplary musicians who are 'the real deal' in an alcohol-free setting available to all.

This first round of Jazz'n'Joe will feature Jazz from its inception through to Bebop (Bebop was developed in the early and mid-1940s). These earlier styles of jazz “are more easily recognizable and fun for audiences. Back in the 1940s if you were to turn on a radio you would have heard all the pieces being played at Jazz’n’Joe with many familiar songs of the era.

Over the ten Saturday evenings, seventeen musicians will perform period classics in different combinations of vibes, wind, brass, bass, piano, drums and vocals. “We decided to keep the event fresh by selecting musicians that may or may not have performed the repertoire together, but all know same songs. This will foster a fresher, more dynamic and unique performance on the night.”

Jazz'n'Joe Musicians include: Mike Booth (Trumpet), Peter Woods (Vibes), Lyndsay Meech (Trumpet/Flugelhorn/Vocals), Mark Houghton (Saxophone), Craig Walters (Saxophone), Maria O'Flaherty (Vocals), Julie Mason (Vocals), Ben Fernadez (Piano), Ross Hurley (Trombone), Asher Tauppan-Lattie (Clarinet), Jason Orme (Drums), Owen Kneebone (Drums), Glen Frewin (Bass), Joel Griffin (Bass), Craig Williams (Bass), Kim Paterson (Trumpet/Drums) and Aaron Codell (Bass).

Collectively these musicians have an impressive CV. They’ve performed at significant international events like the Cannes International Film Festival, at embassies and corporate functions including a party for President Bill Clinton in Mumbai, India. Some of the musicians have played with city and state symphony orchestras like the Berlin Symphonica and the Bavarian State Opera. Many of them have featured in Auckland’s local festivals including the Mission Bay Jazz Festival, Feb 2006 and the Devonport Wine and Music Festival.

On Jazz’n’Joe evenings St Ninian’s will be transformed into an intimate Jazz nightclub, with tables, low lighting, and a quality band. The only difference, no alcohol. Jazz’n’Joe is deliberately going alcohol free, instead serving ‘Joe’, coffee by another name from experienced local barista Aarti of Coffee MAKS’.

It is hoped that people will enter into the spirit of the event by dressing in "period" clothing & make this a truly special event series.

A limited number of tickets per session. Doors will open 15 minutes before the start.

N.B. Please, no recording devices of any sort.
