What’s happening at the VJC

With the end of the year in sight, the Victorian Jazz Club is very proud of the incredibly broad range of music presented to members and their friends this year, and trust that 2015 will shine just as brightly on the jazz calendar for both the Club and its members and followers.

Our New Years Eve gig with Ruby Page and her Jazztets has once again been very well received, and bookings are now closed, with no more seats available. Those who have booked should be reminded that monies are due no later than 14th December, otherwise those seats may be re-distributed to people on the waiting list!

Sunday 14th December is the date for the VJC sponsored “Jazz & Swing comes to Yarraville” being held at the Yarraville Club, 135 Stephens Street, Yarraville. There will be five bands playing from 10.15 am. and entry for the whole day of music is $25. Bookings may be secured by phoning
Marg on 9553 3850.

Bands playing are as follows:

John Morrison’s Moonee Valley Hot 5
John Cox’s Mellowtones,
Ruby Page Swingtet
Pearly Shells
John Calamatta’s Jumpin Jittabugs.

There will be Swing Dancing demonstration, raffles, door prizes, and general “pre-Christmas” festivity.
Hope to see you there!

If you are not able to get to any of our pre-Christmas festivities, may I take this opportunity, on behalf of the Victorian Jazz Club Inc., of thanking you for the support you have given the Club during the past year, and wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season. The Club re-opens on Saturday 24th January with a big “Reunion” gig at which John Withers and John Murray will be returning to Melbourne to join with local musicians in a huge “bash” at the Clayton RSL. Tickets are being pre-sold at $25 each, and this will be a night not to be missed. This group of musicians don’t get to play together in Melbourne very often, and you wouldn’t want to miss it!
