LOOKING for somewhere to go to hear jazz on Thursday nights? Well, here’s a place to check out…
The Rising Sun Hotel, 2 Raglan Street, South Melbourne.
The Joe Ruberto Trio has this new residency, with different special guests each week. You can check the listed guest each week on Jazz Ramble’s Coming Gigs page. Like most groups, the membership of the Trio varies, depending on who’s available, but usually comprises drums and bass, with Joe on piano of course.
This historic South Melbourne Hotel has had a long association with jazz, with the Down Beat Big Band performing from 8.00pm to 11.00pm every Tuesday which will continue. Now with new owners, a new menu and freshly opened upstairs lounge, this grand old pub is expanding its connection with jazz by adding a second regular residency on Thursdays.
The Joe Ruberto Trio performances will begin at 6.30 pm and end at 9.30 pm and are free to the public. Reservations are advised to ensure that you get a table. Phone: 9696 2411
