Hot new Jazz Festival to heat up the City this July
King Street Corner Pocket – Perth’s hottest new jazz festival – will heat up the city this winter. Boasting more than 50 shows and 150 performers, the festival will showcase some of WA’s top emerging and established jazz musicians.
The three-night festival, which runs from 5-7 July, is presented by WAYJO.
It will be staged in venues around the city’s King Street precinct including His Majesty’s Theatre, The Sewing Room, the InterContinental Perth City Centre Hotel and Kailis Jewellery.
WAYJO General Manger Simon Keen said the festival offered something for all jazz music lovers. “King Street Corner Pocket will use spaces that aren’t traditional jazz venues such as Kailis Jewellery boutique on Kings Street and the Intercontinental Perth Hotel, and each concert will only be 30 to 40 minutes long. That’s why it will be so exciting,” he said.
“There will also be a wide variety of jazz styles and artists such as WAYJO’s popular Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Night Orchestras plus fabulous locals such as Alana Macpherson and Priscilla Gardiner, Perth Cabaret Collective, Jamie Oehlers Quartet and WAAPA Jazz – Thom Freeman Quintet.”
There will be three performances per night at 6pm, 7.30pm and 9pm and tickets will be $15 each. Mr Keen said patrons were encouraged to attend multiple performances each night, sampling different performers and styles. “We’re offering a special ‘Pocket Pass’ of 10 vouchers for just $125. The vouchers can be exchanged for show tickets and it’s an affordable way to see some of Perth’s best jazz talent,” he said.
Festival performers include:
Alana Macpherson and Priscilla Gardiner, Atlas State, Austin Salisbury Quartet, Axolotl, Ben
Matthews, Brass Party, Chris Musitano Quintet, Daniel Susnjar Afro-Peruvian Jazz Group, Formes
