Jazzing it up in Patterson Lakes By Liz Rogers

Looking for a place to sit back and relax while listening to some cool Peninsula-style jazz?

Then head on down to Patterson Lakes Community Centre where Peninsula jazz lovers can lounge around to the sounds of music that soothes the soul.

The Peninsula Jazz Club began back in 1978 when a dedicated group of ‘jazzers’ formed to present jazz music on the Mornington Peninsula. The venues have changed over the years, but the same devotion to this style of music hasn’t wavered. Now with over 300 members, The Peninsula Jazz Clubs holds regular monthly get-togethers in Patterson Lakes (usually on the third Friday of each month) where both well-known local and interstate jazz musicians play. This means there’s always a different style of jazz to be enjoyed and there’s even space for a bit of boogying too. Sunday afternoon speciality concerts happen four times a year, an annual dinner dance is held every May, and New Year’s Eve gets off to a bang with jazzed-up celebrations every year. Doors are open from 7.30 pm and close at 11pm and tickets can be purchased at the door or pre-booked by calling Jude Brown on 9558 2801.

The Peninsula Jazz Club will be celebrating its 40th birthday in 2018. Pencil it in and get ready boogie-woogie with the best.
