  1. Hi
    My name is Bill Fordham & I’m looking for a jazz muso (preferably Melbourne based) to be part of a new jazz followers’ tour of west coast America. It has the working title of Wine & all that Jazz & will be an addition to the John Howie Music Tours/Travelrite stable of popular tours. The muso will accompany the tour as part of the leadership team & help to promote the tour in Australia. It will also act as a stimulus for his/her career both in Australia & overseas. If you know of a suitable candidate, please let me know. My phone nos. are 0741287297 & 0431665616.

    Much obliged
    Bill

    • Hi Geoff,
      Thanks for picking that up. I had it right in the list of October gigs but wrong in the Club info. Now correc. Jane

  6. HI Jane
    i was looking through the jazz club information and realised that you do not have the latest details for the Ballarat Jazz Club
    The new president is now Geoff Herkes and for Bookings it is now Marie Wilson 0439 700 219
    could you please update the information shown for me
    thanks Dawn Houghton (BJC Vice President)

  7. Hi Jane,
    Just working my way through your great site.
    I noticed that you have put “Bring your own hamper” in the PJ Club details.
    That only applied to the September Tea dance, it is best if you removed the reference altogether.
    Now back to my explorations of Jazz Ramble!
