Sydney Jazz Sunday Jam

Last Sunday of the month at Freeway Hotel, Artarmon.

Next Event Sunday 26 November, 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. Please be there by 11:30 am.

Fill in the form below and submit it.

Please be sure to give us as much information as needed to ensure a successful performance. We will provide a backing group of professional musicians to support you, usually piano, bass and drums, although other musicians may join in too. You should bring at least 3 copies of charts with chords in the key for your instrument and for C instruments (e.g. piano or guitar), and lead sheets for your songs – at least three copies. You may choose 3 songs for your performance but have a couple in reserve in case we have extra time. Vocalists are welcome.

Bring a music stand.

We have a sound system. You may bring your own mics and leads (preferably 3 pin XLR leads). Guitarists needing amplification may bring an amp or 1/4″ leads to our desk.

Workshop your performance with the musicians; talk to them about your performance and how to develop it.

Register using the form below. We will respond with a confirming email. This email will give you instructions on sending us copies of your charts and lead sheets so the band can be ready for your performance.

Entry to the event is free and is open to all, especially young musicians interested in jazz.

NOVEMBER’s Backing Band

Carolyn Packer (piano and vocals), Bootsie Booth – Reeds, Jimmy Fletcher – Drums, Ed Rapo – Double Bass.

Please note that Sunday Jam will not be held in December or January. We plan to come back in February 2024.
