It's The Real Thing!  

Friday 28th August to Sunday 6th September 2015.

Our new Venue, the J in Noosa Junction.

(opposite The Post Office)

Proudly Presented by the Noosa Heads Jazz Club inc.

 The centre-piece of the Jazz Party is a program comprising six hours per night of entertaining, improvised jazz starting on Thursday 3rd, and closing on Sunday 6th September 2015. It will be held at the new Jazz Club venue, The J Theatre, at Noosa Junction. It is a comfortable, air-conditioned venue with great acoustics in a convenient central location with plenty of well-lit parking and only a hundred or so metres from the regular service bus stop.

Once again we have engaged Australia’s leading jazz musicians to entertain everyone at this event and there will be a number other performances in the week leading up to it stretching the Party to a 10-day event.

Other venues around Noosa include the popular lunch series at the River Deck restaurant and a free Sunday Concert at the Lions Riverstage, Gympie Terrace, Noosaville (near the Yacht Club).

The early bird tickets are already being sold to interstate jazz fans who have taken heed of our ‘Smaller Venue, Book Early’ reminder. The J is little smaller than the Bicentennial Hall but will have ample table seating, a dance floor, scrumptious meals, a fully licenced bar and lounge area and a shuttle bus to get people to and from The J.

Tickets are on sale now for performances at The J on Thursday 3rd, Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September’. Music from 5pm till 11pm, $35 per night or a 4 nights Early Bird ticket for $120. Have your Credit Card ready. Tickets only from:

 The Provisional  Program  2015

  Friday 28th and Saturday29th August

“Broadway to Jazz” 2015 Noosa Jazz Party

 We are pleased to announce an extended program of performances starting with two joint “Broadway to Jazz” concerts with Noosa Chorale on 28th & 29th August at The J. The club has organised “The Australian Jazz Ensemble” headed up by Club Patron Bob Barnard with singer Juliarna Clarke, James Clark, Bob Sedergreen from Melbourne  and  Anthony Howe, Nigel Date and Paul Furniss from Sydney will perform at these events.

Seventy of Noosa’s finest singers, led by conductor Adrian King, will team up with the Australian Jazz Ensemble to perform two concerts  featuring  trad jazz greats and all-time glorious Broadway hits from Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Rodgers and Hammerstein. Since the early 90’s Noosa Chorale and Noosa Heads Jazz Club have been entertaining Noosa audiences, the Chorale with quality music from classic composers like Verdi and Beethoven and the Jazz Club with traditional jazz played by Australia’s top jazzmen. Now for the first time ever we are combining to give a sensational swinging start to this year’s 10-day Noosa Jazz Party. The concert with the Noosa Chorale is on the Friday evening of August 28th 7pm, with a repeat concert on the Saturday afternoon of the 29th, commencing at 2.30pm.

Shuttle Bus

Runs to the J Theatre regularly from 4 pm each night . The first and last run between Hastings Street and the Hall from the bus station at the rear of Hastings Street goes along Noosa Parade to Gympie Terrace and Thomas Street Noosaville. Then to the hall via Mary Street, Noosa Drive and Noosa Junction. Hail And Ride for all stops. This bus is free to patrons of the Noosa Jazz Party.

The format is a continuous evening program of classic jazz played “jam session” style by talented and enthusiastic players formed into combinations that play hourly sets over a six hour period on the four evenings of the Jazz Party.
It provides a completely unique experience and challenge in the Australian jazz scene, both for the audience and the musicians. The players love the concept as they can renew old musical ties with players and often perform with people they have never met before. Mingling with the star musicians is one of the many pleasures.
Noosa Catering at the venue has great blackboard meals nightly 6pm to 8.30pm Budget Bar No BYO
Shuttle Bus hail and ride free from rear Hastings Street bus terminal 4pm to 11.30pm First and last run through Noosa Pde, Gympie Tce, Thomas St Noosaville and Noosa Drive.
