From the media release
Three sensational bands featuring performers from our 2014 Targeted Performers Series plus past & present Jazzgroove artists coming together as the Jazzgroove Retrospect Orchestra formed just for the occasion! All proceeds of the night go towards offsetting costs of our day to day operations, continued development of our Targeted Performer Series and creating further performance opportunities and exposure for our artists
In it’s sixteenth year, The Jazzgroove Association is an artist-led and focused non-proft organisation committed to presenting and raising the profile of jazz and improvised music in Sydney. So hedge a few dollars on the JG Mega-Raffle, test your knowledge with everyone’s favourite wine oriented trivia game, Jazzgoon, and delve into Jazzgroove Records’ back catalogue at the CD stall!
And in true Jazzmas style get your photo taken with Santa!
