CONGRATULATIONS to the JAZZ BIG BAND AND COMBO for getting a SPECIAL COMMENDATION at the NZSM Jazz festival last weekend. The band got to experience the Wellington Wobble on the third floor of the St James Theatre and did what any musician would do... evacuated with instruments to the car park and continued to play! Over the weekend they had performances, workshops, a music history lecture, as well as visits to Weta Studio, Te Papa, 10 pin bowling and plenty of ping pong at our Silverstream accommodation venue. It was a worthwhile and fun two and half days!
