Noosa alive! presents…
Jazz in the Woods

Commencing with a mainstream performance featuring Jazz from the 50’s on, this segment will be headed by the much loved and talented trumpet player and vocalist Peter Uppman a multi recording artist with vast experience in the various genres of Jazz.

We then move into the world of Gypsy Jazz, headed by the the multi talented international performer George Washingmachine. This style of music has had a resurgence and originally became popular through players Django Reinhardt (guitar) and Stephan Grappelli (violin).

The finale to our Jazz in the Woods program will be Classic Jazz from the 20’s through to the 50’s. This music is still played today and has enjoyed a number of revivals over the years, featuring all our ten musicians.

Multi-instrumentalist Brett Iggulden heads our finale. Brett has had a huge history and influence on Australian Jazz, starting his musical career as a teenager with the famed Melbourne group “The Red Onions”, regularly appearing on Graham Kennedy’s “In Melbourne Tonight” before touring for several years in Europe.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday with family and loved-ones in conjunction with Noosa Jazz Club. BYO Picnic!

Nature in Noosa looks like …

Using paints, pens or pencils create a poster of what this means to you and express it your own way – maybe it is:

the ocean | river | parks | the biosphere | people | wildlife or something else altogether?

This is an opportunity for the future influencers within our community to express their own ideas and vision of how they see this place that is their home in a personal and creative way and have their entry displayed in Noosa Civic Shopping Centre.
