Barry Wratten at the Surrey Music Cafe

WHERE’S the Surrey Music Cafe you may ask?
Well it used to be in Surrey Hills in a cafe, but it has now moved to the Box Hill Community  Arts Centre, 470 Station Street, corner  of Combarton Street, Box Hill to accommodate a larger audience.
Barry Wratten will be playing there on Friday 25 November at 8.00pm and with a stellar band:

Barry on clarinet & vocals
Ian Orr, trumpet
Chris Ludowyk, trombone
John Adams, piano
Andy Ross, bass
Lynn Wallis, drums

Wine and cheese. Coffee & cake for sale from 7.30pm

Music from 8.00.  Tickets $18 at the door ($16 if pre-booked)   Telephone 9262 6555 or on line at

Even if Friday Night Jazz at Caulfield had still been a calendar event, this would have been a highly tempting option. Now that the lights have gone out (metaphorically) at Caulfield, this opportunity to hear some high class jazz is way too good to miss. No dancing – save it for Saturday at Clayton RSL!

The Surrey Music Cafe has a monthly music programme on the last Friday of the month. The 2012 programme will start in April. Check their website www.surreymusic.comfor details.

  2. Would love to have been at this gig as we saw Barry Wratten for the first time in 1999 in Melbourne – my husband and I visited Australia from England every Feb/March from 1996 to 2009 inclusive and from 1999 onwards attended many jazz events every year.
