Home Home Oz Manouche 2020


26th to 29th November

Dear Patrons,
It is with great regret that we need to raise ticket prices for the OzManouche Festival by $4 across the range.
Restricted numbers, additional costs associated with Covid-19 and a reduction in the JobKeeper support make this necessary.
If we don’t react to the changing circumstances, The Jazz Club simply won’t be around next year.
We certainly do not intend to leave pricing at increased levels upon return to normal  and sustainable operation of the Club


Phone  (07) 3391 2006 (leave a message with your phone number if your call isn’t answered)


Email    info@brisbanejazzclub.com.au

and we will get back to you as soon as possible

Due to the space restrictions during Covid19, ALL patrons must contact the office for tickets to this event. There are NO online bookings.

Our office hours are Tuesday to Friday 10am – 4pm or email us with your phone number and we will get back to you.



Gypsy Cats

Doors Open 6.30pm to 11pm – Music 7.30pm – 10pm

From humble beginnings busking around the streets of Brisbane, the Gypsy Cats have developed into one of Queensland’s most exciting gypsy jazz bands. In the space of four years, the group has performed at a plethora of festivals and live music venues thrilling audiences and becoming a favourite amongst the Lindy Hop and Balboa dance communities with their hot take on gypsy jazz and their distinctive sound and instrumentation.

Roberto Fontana (trumpet), Dany Avanzini (lead guitar), Rodrigo Santiago (lead guitar),

Mircha Mangiacotti (rhythm guitar), Emma Hales (bass /cello).



Manouche Bop Trio

Doors Open 6.30pm to 11pm – Music 7.30pm – 10pm

These fabulous musicians come together through a love of Bebop and Manouche Jazz. With a love of Bird, Dizzy, Wes and Miles, to a deep passion for Django and Grappelli, they skilfully blend the sound of both the American and Parisian pioneers of the art form. Bebop and Manouche share similar stylistic nuances, and with a vast repertoire of both genres, Manouche Bop Trio bring on the swing!

Camaron De La Vega (guitar), Javier Spicer (guitar), Lachlan McKenzie (bass)




Shenzo Gregorio Quartet

Doors Open 6.30pm to 11pm – Music 7.30pm – 10pm

Shenzo Gregorio brings a worldly inventiveness to the art of improvising on the violin. Having first picked up the violin at age four with an upbringing steeped in Classical music, Shenzo has gone on to perform within the musical traditions of Flamenco, Gypsy Jazz, Bluegrass, Indian, Rock, Country, Blues and popular styles for the last 23 years. Though not fully emersed in any one these particular musical traditions has allowed Shenzo the freedom to be influenced by all of them; you could say he’s a real country musician or a musician for all countries.

Shenzo Gregorio (violin/guitar), john Reeves (accordion), Camaron De La Vega (guitar), Peter Walters (bass). 



Run Rabbit 

Doors Open 2.30pm to 7pm – Music 3.30pm – 6pm

Digging back into the forgotten gems, corkscrew melodies and topsy stomps of early jazz, Run Rabbit combine the spirited violin and the playful guitars; this acoustic trio mischievously arranges songs with a fresh approach to the style while tipping their hats to the original architects Django Reinhardt and Louis Armstrong. Featuring members of prominent gypsy jazz bands, Swing Dynamique and Cigany Weaver, welcome Brisbane’s newest super group.

Jan Van Dijk (violin), Conor McDonald (guitar), Rory Dollard (guitar)
