Saturday April 15 – Easter Saturday  [ Piano/Vocal Jazz ]

Open 4.00pm – 11pm    Music 4pm – 10pm   Book early, limited seating   $20 M   $30 NM

Exactly 45years ago to the day, Lord Mayor Clem Jones officiated at the opening ceremony of what is now the well-loved Brisbane Jazz Club. Join us for this very special day when, we not only share the history of the club in words and pictures, but also welcome many of our former Presidents, Life Members, musicians and members and memories of the past, with the Lord Mayor’s representatives.

At 6.00pm we will daw our Grand Piano Art Union. This will be the only time you may see both our beautiful Kawai piano, and our new Yamaha piano on stage together before the Kawai is won and taken to its new home. To celebrate we will welcome such notable pianists as T’Nee Dyer, Bernice Haydock & David Bentley.

To set our new look and sound off to a ‘smart start’ we welcome the fabulous new look and sound of the Franky Smart Quintet.

Franky Smart AKA Claire Walters is a Brisbane based singer / songwriter who is about to hit the ripe old age of 30. She was born Easter Sunday and would like to celebrate in a pool of Easter Chocolate except, to steer clear from the anxiety of “getting older” she has decided to drown herself in musical loves and what has inspired her writing to this very day. Sit back and get Festive with Franky as she shares her favourites with her favourites at one of her favourites, The Brisbane Jazz Club.
