River City Jazzmen
March 3 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
In the best tradition of New Orleans and Chicago jazz the River City Jazzmen will, from the first half of the 20th Century, enrapture you with a rich repertoire of authentic standards.
Winners of the latest Christchurch battle of the jazz bands, The River City Jazzmen pay homage to great instrumentalists such as Sidney Bechet & Louis Armstrong as well as the English Trad giants like Ball, Barber and Bilk. But just as easily they can change tack to swinging jazz standards from the big Band era.
The River City Jazzmen bring a love of the ‘authentic’, and have an impressive following throughout all of NZ.
This is the day to roll out a blanket, unpack your chair, sit back, relax and enjoy life in a picnic like atmosphere.
