Henry Manuell’s Kid Hank Band – Jazz at Jamison
1-4pm Sunday 11 April, Jamison
Sunday afternoon Jazz at Jamison – enjoy three hours of free live jazz from 1pm in the lounge, presented by Canberra Jazz Club.
Henry Manuell’s Kid Hank band brings the vibrancy of the New Orleans French quarter to Canberra. A repertoire covering traditional, creole, dixieland and swing jazz styles, mixed with a little ragtime, delivers a joyful rendition of ‘Nola’ street music from the 1920s and 1930s.
This talented line-up features Henry Manuell on banjo and vocals, Robbie Mann on piano and clarinet, Sam Golding on trumpet, sax and sousaphone and Willem van Ekert on drums and washboard.
Kid Hank will transport you back to the familiar sounds of early New Orleans with its toe-tapping beats and lively melodies. Mix it with the band’s unmistakable earthy notes that betray its inner-city origins and you have a music style that delivers classic jazz with a modern twist. Guaranteed to have you dancing in your seat!
Free event, bookings are encouraged.
