Jazz Jamboree, essentially a jazz variety show marks Taranaki Jazz Club's 20th year and celebrates the wealth of talent in the province. There will be four acts and a Jam Session Grand Finale with up to 30 musicians joining in.

The newly formed 17 piece Ritz Big Band is a welcome addition to the local jazz scene and this is their long awaited first appearance. They feature a strong brass section and include musicians of all ages.

Club favourite singer and keyboardist Chris Gimblett, along with guitarist Ross Halliday make up 'Off the Cuff.'

Young jazz vocalist Lauren Nottingham who won the NZ Jazz School's Outstanding Jazz Vocalist Award in 2011 is the other half of 'Multiplayer' with acclaimed U born musician Matt Sagen who at 16 was chosen to play with Dizzy Gillespie after winning the Piano Chair at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

'Words with the Birds' are three 16 year old Girls High School students excelling in the harmonies of The Andrew Sisters and causing a sensation whenever they perform. It all began when they started busking to fundraise for their upcoming overseas studies.

The Jam Session finale will include other local musicians as well as the Boy's High school Jazz Combo. Bet there!
