The Noosa Jazz Party is Unique

Unlike other jazz festivals, the Noosa Heads Jazz Club only invites the best individual jazz musicians to play and forms them into ensembles to create exciting, improvised jazz.

In addition to bringing Jon-Erik from overseas, Ian Date is coming out from Ireland to join his guitar-playing brother Nigel and violinist George Washingmachine to play their special brand of gypsy jazz.

After missing two years, because of the pandemic, the Noosa Jazz Party is making its triumphant return with a program that organisers say is:

'the best in the thirty years the festival has been held'

Featuring Jon-Erik Kellso
