Jazz at The Junktion Hotel . . .June 2018

And it didn't take long for the Jams to get going again. . . 


Every man and his dog rocked the Junktion this week. And what a session it turned out to be – 26 musos in attendance, and joining the regulars, were the likes of Sir Roger, Rick, bassist Andrew, Kay (piano and mellodica), John Hunter (blues harp), Malcolm (drums) and Margaret (violin). And Brigid Deneefe having a ball whilst Sir Roger blew out the windows to celebrate his award for attending Merimbula for 27 years.. An audience of over 50 enjoyed a variety of jazz styles.


We haven’t seen Ponytail Pete in a while – he stepped up to the plate and played some fine bass, after a marathon stint from newcomer Andrew on double bass; and Brian sang, for the first time at the Junktion, particularly well. Peter Cole made a welcome return (from Pommieland I think) trailing clouds of rust perhaps, but really got into the groove.


Carol showed she is turning into a true jammer, handing out one page of a two page chart, in two different keys; but made up for it by singing an entertaining set. Look out for her first stint as a featured singer, coming up soon.


The session started with Gentleman John Curtis, and finished with Annie Smith, as a good session should.


The Junktion Jazz sessions continue to grow in size and quality. Interesting times ahead – and great to welcome back the Merimbula mob and the Castlemaine crew.
