After a sell-out performance here in March 2004, the Jazz Workshop Biggish Band will be performing again at the Masque Theatre, 37 Main Road, Muizenberg this Sunday 10 October at 19h00.

With comfortable seats in a 'raked' auditorium, and a fully licensed bar The Masque Theatre boasts regular productions by Cape Town's dramatic societies and children's theatre in the foyer during school holidays, as well as hosting concerts by False Bay luminaries like Robin Auld, Nick Taylor. It is by far one the best venues in Cape Town, and we are very pleased to be back -- not only for the venue, but also the appreciating audience who know how to have a nice evening out!

The Masque Theatre is currently celebrating it's 5th birthday,
since it was rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1997.

Just like the previous performance at the Masque, the JWBB will use the oppurtunity to premiere a new composition, this time another Mertyn Barrow classic, called Playing in Traffic, and as a guest artist this time we'll feature another stalwart of the Cape Town jazz scene, George Werner, on piano.

We'll also be playing a selection of our trademark repertoire of original Big Band Jazz, composed for us by Mertyn Barrow, David Ledbetter, Douglas Armstrong and Jannie 'Hanepoot' van Tonder, as well as some new arrangements of South African classics by Zakes Nkosi, Hugh Masekela, Dollar Brand, Chris McGregor, etc

Ticket prices are R35 for their members of the Masque Theatre and R40 for non-members. Enquiries or 788 1898 .

Forthcoming performances confirmed: we'll be on at the G-Spot in Epping on Sunday 31 September, and at the St. Luke's 'Jazz in the Park' in the Rondebosch Park towards end of November

Hope to see you at one of these ..
