Join us on Saturday, 29th September from 1 to 4pm, as we indulge in the sounds of some of Australia’s finest up and coming brass band stars! Phat Brass brings renewed enthusiasm and energy to the brass band genre by combining pop and jazz tunes to entertain all musical tastes. Coming off the back of their recent display at the Sydney State of Origin game, these fine musicians will charm you with their musical talents while you sit back, relax and enjoy a wine.
Free wine tastings are available throughout the day. Pizzas and cheese plates will be available for purchase to enjoy with a glass of wine.
*Please remember that this event may attract a small crowd so we ask that you leave your furry friends at home. Also, this not a BYO event.
Picnic among the vines at the picturesque Joadja Estate on June 10th, 2018 from 1pm-4pm. Free music will be supplied by the energetic ‘Corner Pocket’ – fine musicians of cool jazz, southern soul, coastal blues and reggae roots!
Enjoy a rare convergence of fine musicianship, expressed through a songbook of classic tunes, with an edge of spontaneity & improvisation that keeps the band & the listener on the edge of their seats!
While holding ‘jazz’ in high esteem, Jenny B & Corner Pocket also reflect their audiences tastes by incorporating a range of blues, soul & reggae influences. With this creative flexibility the ‘jazz tradition’ ceases to be a strange straightjacket for the elite; instead it becomes a cool, comfortable & familiar coat for any occasion.
Jenny Blunden (voice) & Lachlan Mackenzie (guitar) have shared stages for 25 years & are best known as the creative partnership that created the South Coast’s premier jazz outfit, The Escalators.
Jenny’s gorgeous voice & irresistible stage presence combined with Lachlan’s vintage guitar tone, writing & arranging skills took a small town band (The Escalators) to national festivals (Noosa Jazz, Manly Jazz), Jazz Artist of the Year (2016) at the Australian Independent Music Awards, & two number 1 singles in the ‘blues & roots’ category of TripleJ Unearthed.
While Jenny took a break from performing in 2017 for the birth of their daughter Blossom, Lachlan started a brand-new project, Corner Pocket, with long-time collaborator Hayden Moore (drums) & rising star Mason Colley (bass). For the past 12-months Corner Pocket has built a reputation for their surprising & inventive all-instrumental interpretations of classic tunes from the fields of jazz, reggae & soul.
Wood-fired pizzas and cheese plates will be available for sale, so all you need to bring is a picnic blanket! Free wine tastings are available all day.
(We regret that this is not a BYO event and also that we cannot allow your furry friends to participate.)
