Jazz in January – Shirazz
Friday 12 January | Woden
The annual Jazz in January concert, presented in association with the Canberra Jazz Club, will feature Melbourne’s famous traditional and dixieland jazz band, Shirazz.
Shirazz mixes hot traditional jazz with laid-back Louisiana street beats in their witty and raucous live show. Their reputation as one of Melbourne’s premier jazz bands has earned them invitations to dozens of festivals across Australia and, recently, New Zealand. They also keep a busy touring schedule, performing to packed houses across Australia. They have released five albums, including one nominated for an Australian Jazz Bell Award.
Shirazz’s music is born in the New Orleans tradition, but injected with humour, novel rearrangements of pop hits, Euro-folk influences, and Shirazz’s own larrikin style.
Easily the most entertaining traditional jazz band playing today, Shirazz in concert will be an unforgettable night.
