2016 Jazz Party

Think speak easy, underground dive bar delights, then add some of Melbourne’s top jazz musicians and a warm and welcoming community, and you’re still only halfway to understanding the awesome that is Jazz Party.

Made for the bar room not the ballroom, Jazz Party is a loose collective of jazzbos known for their sporadic take-over residences in unassuming rooms across Melbourne. Playing a slippery mix of jump blues, boogie, and rhythm ’n’ blues á la New Orleans, this band of boho legends will bring Lorne to its knees.

Shouting, drinking and slow dancing with strangers all encouraged.


FOPA GALA Opening Night ticketholders will gain free entry to Jazz Party.
