First up at Ballantine’s Festival Club, Subject to Change will immerse you in a synthesis of sounds. Taking hold of the lively tempos and throbbing pulses of Afro Cuban, Brazilian, jazz, funk and Reggae music these familiar and versatile musicians will interlace a repertoire of new approaches to standards and original compositions to create a spirited brand of Latin jazz fusion. This ensemble of talented soloists will charge the evening with their inventive spontaneity.

SATURDAY 4 OCTOBER
Jazzberry Combo
Seasoned Jazz/Blues musicians Suzanne Ellison (vocals), Doug Wright (piano/vocals), and John Dodd (bass/vocals) perform a wide selection of musical styles ranging from the sophistication of Cole Porter, to the raunchiness of Bessie Smith. To that, the Combo adds Latin American rhythm along with Manhattan Transfer style harmonies and blends them to create a kaleidoscope of moods that adds a champagne finale to a perfect Saturday night.

She has been compared to Anita Baker, Joni Mitchell, Hollie Smith, Jill Scott and Alicia Keys.

Experience what will be a showcase of her undeniable talents with a distinctly New Zealand flavour of soul.

MONDAY 6 OCTOBER
Nativa Trio

Calder Prescott Jazz Octet
Dunedin’s great jazz pianist Calder Prescott returns to the Festival Club with his Jazz Octet. This ensemble of eight of the city’s finest instrumentalists will raise the roof with their very fine arrangements of standards, old favourites and some less familiar numbers. Always polished and assured, Calder Prescott and his octet set a high standard of late night entertainment at Ballantine’s Festival Club.

Bobby Vinson Combo
The Bobby Vinson Combo was formed in 2007 by former members of Plagiarhythm; Robert Milne (Vocals) and Kevin Finegan (Drums). Joined by Jesse Kokau'a (Guitar), Mike Bickers (Trumpet, Flugel) and Craig Sinclair (Bass), the four piece combo play smooth and cool jazz with the aim of recreating an era and style synonymous with romance. Their nostalgic repertoire consists of a wide variety of jazz styles including cool, swing, bebop, latin and modern. The group have a huge list of standards, many of which are well known classics. The Bobby Vinson Combo are a sentimental bunch whose charm and subtlety will warm the room and lift your heart.

FRIDAY 10 OCTOBER
Entropy Trio
Entropy Trio cook up an evening of cool jazz that sizzles with talent. These three young musicians, Paul Young on saxophones, Scott Campbell on bass and Paul McLennan-Kissel on drums, play groove-based modern jazz - a mixture of originals and their interpretations of standards. In true jazz spirit, improvisation and spontaneity are central to the Trio’s sound. Entropy Trio’s music I also played with the dance floor in mind.

SATURDAY 11 OCTOBER
King Leo and The Growling Dogs
Surrender yourself to King Leo (LaDelle) and the Growling Dogs blues experience. Their four-piece uptown blues sound has won them many fans. They deliver a powerful hit of exciting, uptown blues in the spirit of B.B.King and Little Milton. Mixed with King Leo’s classic electric guitar sound, soulful harmonica and expressive voice this will be an explosive way to celebrate the final night of Ballantine’s Festival Club.
