Pick My Project: Jazz After Dark
Developing a Jazz series within the Alex Theatre for Musicians.
Jazz after Dark music series presides over a soulful empire of jazz built on an infectious sense of humor and extended joy-infused improvisation.
Although entertaining for the public this series of Sunday performances has been designed as a New York Jazz club for musicians to meet, jam and socialise while enjoying great music. It gives young artist a place to hear seasoned performers play and discuss techniques and styles.
Our aim is to see the development of new artists under the inspirational mentoring and performance of old.
This is not a classroom setting, no theory, but live and unique.
J.A.D builds on the music history of The George in St Kilda through the Alex Theatre. The George was the launch pad of great Australian bands and our aim is to develop programs in music such as Jazz After Dark that will aid and develop artists through mentoring in a live performance environment.
– young musicians hearing great artists in a live setting.
– Mentoring of young artists.
– Musicians health and well-being, being able to support and talk within their community of artists.
– The public gets to see and enjoy musicians doing their thing live.
