Upcoming Live Jazz

Two great live jazz shows will be available in Nelson during April.

On April 13th, Antipodes will be playing at Fairfield House. The saxophonist Jake Baxendale has played in/fronted several bands at the Nelson Jazz Festival. Antipodes is a collective of New Zealand and Australian jazz musicians playing original compositions that emphasise melody, emotive soundscapes, and an open improvisational aesthetic. The music draws from diverse influences – modern New York jazz meets Swedish indie pop and European free improvised music. Audiences are first drawn in by introspective, timbral improvisations and then set to foot-tapping with danceable beats, songlike melodies and fiery solos. More info available at https://www.fairfieldnelson.org.nz/event/antipodes-2/.

On April 13th, The Boathouse Cafe will host the Nelson Jazz Club Big Band.

Let the band play on! Come along to The Boathouse Nelson for an evening of music and dancing with entertainment from The Nelson Jazz Club Big Band.
