This January 13th - 15th, the Jazzgroove Association is proud to bring the 3rd annual Jazzgroove Summer Festival to the streets, venues and parks of Surry Hills. Following on from last year's success, we are presenting more gigs, in new venues, with something for everyone. From our humble beginning back in 2010 we are quickly establishing the 2nd weekend in January as an integral part of the Sydney Summer cultural calendar. Every year we aim to expand our events to give you the opportunity to experience all that Jazzgroove has to offer and this year is no different.
Alongside our usual nightly programming, we will be continuing our highly successful FREE workshops and kids program at the Redfern Town Hall. On top of this we have added for the first time an opening night Q&A to take place at the Old 505 Theatre with some of the most respected members of the jazz community debating “The Sydney Sound.”
Here at Jazzgroove we know firsthand the effects that a vitamin D deficiency can have, so in a bid to make our community not just culturally healthier, we are for the first time programming a Saturday afternoon of FREE outdoor gigs in the newly renovated Prince Alfred Park.
Had enough yet? We haven’t! To top it all off we are very excited about to introduce a Jazzgroove first: the JARA award (Jazzgroove Association Recording Award). With the assistance of some of our awesome community partners we will be awarding a $10,000 prize enabling the recipient to record, produce and distribute a record of new works. So grab your tickets! See you at a gig!
