Coming Events at the DJC!

DJC “Pop-Up” @ The Petridish!

To help promote local jazz talent the DJC has formed a partnership with the Petridish on Stafford Street to present a series of relaxed gigs at the Dish Cafe on Friday nights.

June 16: Bare Essentials

Local talent is on show at the next installment of the Dunedin Jazz Club “Pop-Up” series, with Dunedin based group “Bare Essentials” presenting their unique blend of vocal and instrumental jazz that is built around the foundation of John Meddings’ crystalline guitar playing and Bill Davidson’s bluesy vocals. In more recent times, Annemarie Nelson has joined the group, adding a layer of harmonic sophistication to the sound with her piano accompaniment and sultry voice. For this special one-off gig, tenor saxophonist Bill Martin also joins the group, playing a range of fills and improvised lines that will enhance the polished and professional sound of this vastly experienced group.

Concerts @ Hanover Hall:

Featuring a grand piano, excellent acoustics, multi-tiered seating and a cash-bar, our venue provides local audiences with the perfect environment to appreciate improvised music. Typical concerts feature solo artists from around New Zealand and the Globe, who collaborate with local musicians to present concerts for a variety of jazz ensembles, ranging from small combos to Big Bands.

August 26: The Dunedin City Jazz Orchestra plays Duke Ellington
