Every Monday night in August The Gasometer will play host to Melbourne’s most unique and energetic jazz outfit, Jazz Party.
Made for the bar room, not the ballroom. Jazz Party is a loose collective of jazzbos renowned for their sporadic take-over residences in unassuming rooms across Melbourne. Playing a slippery mix of jump blues, boogie, and rhythm n blues á la New Orleans, Jazz Party is the one party you don’t want to miss.
Comprising some of Melbourne’s hottest young musicians with a rotating roster and regular features from members of bands such as Daniel Merriweather, The Cat Empire, Clairy Brown & The Bangin' Rackettes, Husky, Mojo Juju, and Martin Martini, the essence of Jazz party is surprise and spontaneity and you just never know who will be there
Jazz Party’s improvisational and musical wizardry embodies an early rock'n'roll attitude to jazz – no stage, no fancy compositions, just a piano, a basic band structure and killer musicians who never fail to bring the party.
Shouting, drinking and slow dancing with strangers all encouraged.
