The Wellington Jazz Festival is heating up the cool capital from 3-7 June 2015. Come get your mid-winter culture fix, with more than 100 gigs set over five days.

In a New Zealand first, the incredible New Orleans Jazz Orchestra performs for one night only to open the 2015 Wellington Jazz Festival. Be there when Grammy Award-winners Dee Dee Bridgewater (vocals) and Irvin Mayfield (trumpet) take you on a musical journey to the spiritual home of jazz.

Memphis-born star Dee Dee Bridgewater is simply “one of the greatest living jazz vocal divas” (London Jazz News). In this charming show, she’ll weave you a story of New Orleans’ jazz history through song.

Led by its director Irvin Mayfield, the seventeen-piece band performs with “blistering Creole fire, a kind of unrestrained fun and virtuosity” (Omaha World-Herald). Like hanging out on the front porch of a Louisiana neighbourhood, soaking in its sounds and spirit, experience the very best of The Big Easy right here in Wellington.
