Jazz At the Pines April and May 2017
A project of The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville
After a great start with the Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters in February, the weather conspired against us and we had to cancel the March event with the Riverside Jazz Band. However, the Zenith Jazz Sextet are all set to entertain on the 23rd April followed by something different with the Sydney Youth Jazz Orchestra performing on the 21st May. Following our winter break we will start the new season on the 17th September with the Mike Hallam Hot Six.
It's a great way to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon catching up with friends while listening to some great Jazz.
The setting under the huge old pine trees at Roughley House, Dural, is hard to beat and as a bonus you can take a tour of historic Roughley House (built 1856) during breaks in the music or enjoy the superb views of the Blue Mountains from the rear of the property.. Bring your own picnic lunch and drinks, and enjoy fabulous home-made afternoon teas from the volunteers in the Visitors Centre. If you book early you can secure a table and chairs or you can also bring your own folding chairs or a blanket to relax on the ground.
