Manurewa Local Board brings you Jazz in the Gardens at Nathan Homestead.

Twistin’ the Swing is a lively acoustic gypsy jazz band influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt, 1930-40’s swing and Romani songs. Alternating between highly energetic and engaging, to slow ballads and medium swing tunes.

The Joe Carbery Swingtet plays modern/traditional swing music reminiscent of the small groups of the swing era. Count Basie, Chet Baker, Louis Jordan, Lester Young and Gerry Mulligan are just a few of their influences.

Opening set from the Manurewa High School Jazz Band.

In the event of wet weather, this event will be moved indoors to Nathan Homestead.

This is a smoke free event.
