CASTLEMAINE JAZZ FESTIVAL Various venues, Castlemaine
Start: Fri 7, 6, 2019. | End: Mon 10, 6, 2019.
Castlemaine will be hosting their 6th Annual Jazz Festival over the Queen’s Birthday Weekend, 7-10 June.
This year’s Festival features more than fifty outstanding bands. Held across five unique central Castlemaine venues, with a full programme starting from the Friday evening and going through until Monday afternoon, this year the festival will be celebrating a broad range of jazz styles and performers from across the region and beyond.
2019 Jazz Festival highlights include:
-‘The Seven Ups’, performing at the Theatre Royal are the original seven-piece party band from Melbourne, blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street funk.
-Festival favourites ‘Low Down Big Band’, an 18 piece Melbourne-borne big band will be playing a balanced mix of Trad, Blues, Funk, New Orleans, and Contemporary styles. Expect high intensity, hard- swinging, funk-filled fun.
-A new addition to the Festival programme will be the original and electrifying fusion quartet ‘Jungle Fusion’. With their deep ethno roots and avant-garde philosophy you can expect a wild and eclectic show. Think Jimi Hendrix meets Miles Davis.
-‘The Goldfields Jazz Orchestra’ with Meg Corson performing at the Theatre Royal will be bringing an unforgettable experience. These highly talented musicians, a collaboration by instrument musicians from across the region debuted at the 2018 festival and were a smash hit.
