Sunday 10 September, Jamison

The band until recently was known as Capt Bob’s Station House Seven. Trumpet player Bob Netting formed the band in 1992 but advancing health issues saw ‘Capt Bob’ formally announce his retirement in May this year, only to die unexpectedly less than 4 weeks later.

The band has enjoyed huge success these past 31 years playing “hot” New Orleans style dixieland jazz. In honour of ‘Capt Bob’s’ memory, the band members have decided to continue the band as the Station House Seven.

The line-up on this occasion will feature regular members Gordon Brown on piano, Dennis Quinlan on banjo, Colin Davies on bass, John Dent on drums and Bob Porter on reeds. Joining them will be popular Canberra locals Tony Thomas on trumpet and Owen Cooper on trombone.

Always a crowd favourite at ‘Jazz at Jamison’, the audience can expect another fun afternoon of foot-tapping traditional jazz rarely heard these days. Join us as we present a tribute to the late jazz man Robert ‘Capt Bob’ Netting.

Music from 1pm in the lounge. Bookings recommended.

Jazz at Jamison is presented in partnership with the Canberra Jazz Club.
