Think New Orleans, think jazz. Think jazz locally, think the Manly Jazz Club.

This creative collaboration between Tracey Hewson, owner of the Manly Bar and Grill in Whangaparaoa’s Manly Village, and well known local jazz singer/songwriter June Hayes of June Hayes Music, means that for the first time ever on the Coast, music enthusiasts will be able to ‘fill their boots’ with wonderful live jazz performed by some of New Zealand’s finest musicians, in a jazz club environment right in their backyard!

Set to open on Thursday 16th July, the inaugural Manly Jazz Club’s debut will showcase the well-known and extremely popular ‘Ben Fernandez Quartet’, with Ben on piano accompanied by bassist Russell McNaughton, jazz violinist Nick Jones, and Jason Orme on drums. Throughout the evening the quartet will be joined by special guest vocalists and feature musicians including Carolina Moon, Julie Mason, saxman Andrew Dixon, Helen Brown, Maria O'Flaherty, Jessie Le Marie and others, providing the audience with a perfect opening night ‘jazz cocktail’.

The evening commences from 7.30pm until 10.30pm, with a $10.00 entry fee.

Thereafter the Manly Jazz Club will turn the spotlight on a feature band from within the wider Auckland area or beyond, on the third Thursday of every month. ‘The idea is to present a fantastic array of professional jazz artistry across a variety of styles that will appeal to our audiences, and at a time that allows people to travel outside peak rush hour traffic. The enthusiastic support from musicians has been fantastic’, June Hayes says.

To ensure supporters are informed, they will be invited to register contact details with the Manly Jazz Club .
