Caxton Street Band to swing in and jazz up the Granite Belt

THE Caxton Street Jazz Band will return to Robert Channon Wines to once again perform at the Swigmore Hall.

The band will be visiting the Granite Belt on Saturday, October 1, from 2.30pm.

The Caxton Street Jazz Band was founded in Brisbane in 1977 and is one of Australia's leading jazz bands, playing the classic hot swinging jazz of the early 20th century.

Members of the band include some of Australia's leading jazz players.

These members are John Braben on trumpet; Paul Williams on clarinet and tenor sax; Tom Nicolson on trombone, banjo and vocal; Bernice Haydock on piano and vocals; Andrew Shaw on double bass; and Bob Mair on drums and washboard.

The band takes its name from its first venue, the Baroona Hall in Caxton St, Brisbane.

The band then rose to prominence in the '80s through its long running stint at the famous Jazz 'N Jug sessions at Brisbane's Caxton Hotel.

Robert Channon said this would be a performance jazz enthusiasts would not want to miss.

"The Caxton Street Jazz Band is unique,” he said.

"Hardly any other bands can still play this music and very few can entertain like them.”

Tickets for the concert are $25 and, as usual, include a free glass of wine.

Since this is a hugely popular concert on the Granite Belt, tickets are likely to sell out and booking is strongly encouraged.

There will be a pre-concert buffet lunch available at the Singing Lake Cafe for $25 per head.

Bookings are required.

For ticket and lunch bookings or information on the event call the winery on 46833260.

Robert Channon Wines is at Bradley Lane, Amiens.
