A Big Jam

Work starts this week on The Big Jam, for the opening of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. Battling volcanic-ash-laden skies, the wonderful Nico and Martin have arrived in Melbourne from Ireland. We have our first rehearsal on Tuesday.

It’s going to be a fast-paced jazzy journey through the history of jazz, with lot of opportunities for crowd participation. Nico has written the script, and together we will be fleshing out what our audience-participants can do to add to the musical textures.

It’s on at Federation Square this coming Saturday 1 May at 2pm, so if you are in Melbourne, you should grab an instrument and a pair of spoons, and get yourself down there. The Big Jam will be followed by a free concert – so you can make a full afternoon of it.
