18 August 2023|Community News, Lifestyle| Off Comments off on Jazz gets North Hobart jumping|

JAZZ lovers can lock Sunday 27 August in their diaries, with the 19th annual Hot August Jazz Festival set to swing North Hobart from noon till midnight.

Hot August Jazz promises to deliver something to suit all jazz tastes, with a range of acts from soloists to big bands performing the whole spectrum of jazz genres, from traditional and mainstream through to blues, funk and modern.

More than 280 of Tasmania’s best established and emerging musicians – and some guests from the mainland – will perform at 12 venues across North Hobart, all within easy walking distance along Elizabeth Street and up Burnett Street.

A popular showcase of Tasmanian jazz talent, Hot August Jazz has proven to be a starting point for many young musicians, giving them the chance to perform in front of an audience while also learning from the more experienced players.

The event is a favourite of the musicians, as they get to see their peers perform as well as performing themselves. And punters love the chance to see so many of their favourite bands and musicians for free.

Hot August Jazz 2023 begins at noon on Sunday 27 August and wraps up at the Republic Bar at midnight.

Entry to all venues is free – there is no cover charge, but we encourage patrons to support the businesses by purchasing food and drink where available.

Programs will be available from the venues or online at www.hobartjazzclub.com

For more information please contact Kaye Payne on 0412 825 967 or Christine Bailey on 0438 722 137.

Hot August Jazz is presented by the Hobart Jazz Club Inc and proudly supported by Hobart City Council and the Rotary Club of North Hobart.
