WJO Rodger Fox’s Wellington Jazz Orchestra. The band presents a performance at 8pm on the last Tuesday of each month at The Grand. Support “live” music.

Special guests vocalist: Erna Ferry

Wellington’s premier big band featuring the capitals finest jazz talent. Founded by New Zealand jazz-big band legend Rodger Fox, this band covers all bases. Sizzling ensemble playing, stunning soloists and the desire to give people a good time through music.

Members of the WJO have performed with some of the biggest names in jazz including Michael Brecker, Bill Cunliffe, Joe Williams, Louie Bellson, Bob Sheppard, Bruce Forman, Eric Marienthal Bill Reichenbach, Jim Pugh to name but a few. This experience impacts on the band in a very positive way and it is hoped the band can further develop this link with national and international artists and become the jazz orchestra of choice for visiting jazz musicians.

A band of this nature can only be good for the Wellington music scene and further foster the fact that Wellington is truly a musical hub for New Zealand.
