About Us


The Brisbane Jazz Club is renowned for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where you may enjoy the best local, interstate
and international jazz. Our commitment is to the music… and an unforgettable experience!

The riverside location of our historic clubhouse offers stunning views of the city skyline, particularly after dark, from both inside the club, and outside on the deck.

The BJC is a community, not-for-profit enterprise run by a fanatically dedicated voluntary Committee of Management, comprising the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and eight Committee Members who all serve a 12 month term until a new Committee is elected at the AGM in September every year.

The Club has a small number of paid employees in Front of House, Bar Duties, Artistic Direction, Sound Engineering, Graphic Design and a large number of Volunteers who assist in maintenance and Club night duties.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact the office on info@brisbanejazzclub.com.au for more information.

The BJC is one of the few jazz venues which boasts its own building and its own band; the 19-piece Brisbane Big Band, while independently run, has been the Club’s resident band since 1974. The Brisbane Big Band Festival was inaugurated as an annual event in May 2012.

The club plays an important role in fostering the appreciation of jazz across all ages and nationalities and regularly hosts school and college bands in support of our Youth in Jazz activities. The Club books a wide variety of both established and emerging, local and International jazz entertainers to appear at the Club every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus regular monthly events.
Patrons are encouraged to become members of the Club to enjoy discounted admission rates and other benefits.
