SUNDAY Feb 02 | Clarence Jazzmen
The Clarence Jazzmen have become an institution of good time jazz on the north coast.
Drummer Warren ‘Clarence’ Byrnes (back left) now the only original member, is both drummer and much acclaimed lead vocalist. He’s joined by (from left) Pietro Fine on clarinet, soprano sax, melodica and piano,
Terry Villis
on guitar and banjo, Bob ‘Nimbin Good Times’ Dooley on double bass, along with newest member Dave Stephenson on trumpet and trombone. They play the repertoire of the old Australian jazz bands, popular show songs and jazz classics, from Buddy Bolden’’s Blues of the 1920s to Mercy, Mercy, Mercy from the 60s.
This’ll be a blast of foot-stomping traditional jazz – and a great start to the year!

SUNDAY April 07 | Sharny Russell Quartet
Heartfelt, genuine and commanding, the uniquely talented Sharny Russell was a standout when she last appeared at the Club in October 2017. A jazz artist who is highly respected among her peers, and is an APRA Jazz Award winner, Sharny’s repertoire is fresh and original, whilst divinely musical and accessible for new fans of the jazz genre. Sharny plays and sings unison improvised lines like she’s picking flowers, and invites her audience to join in the fun. One of Australia's finest jazz singers and composers, joined on stage by local jazz stalwarts.
