Jazz returns to the Granite Belt
ROBERT Channon Wines will be jumping with Jazz on Saturday when the Caxton Street Jazz Band returns.
This will be the ninth year in a row the band has played at the Amiens winery.
Caxton St Band is a very well known Australian jazz band, who got the 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.
Full of talented musicians, the band consists of a trumpet, clarinet, tenor sax, trombone, banjo, vocals, piano, double bass, drums and washboard.
Robert Channon said this fun and energetic concert is one not to be missed.
"The Caxton Street Jazz Band is one of Australia's best known jazz bands,” he said.
"The Band's reputation stems from many years playing hot jazz in their own highly entertaining way.
"It is going to be fantastic hearing them again at the winery.”
Mr Channon recommends pre-purchasing tickets for those who don't want to miss out.
"Although we sell tickets on the day, bookings are recommended as this is always a popular concert,” he said.
The concert will take place at 2.30pm this Saturday in the winery's Swigmore Hall.
Concert tickets are $25 per person and as always include a complimentary glass of wine after the performance.
A buffet lunch can also be purchased before the concert from the Singing Lake Cafe.
Seats for lunch are $25 per head and must be booked beforehand.
