The River City Jazzmen

20 January 2021

The award-winning River City Jazzmen are returning to the Lake Wanaka Centre at 7.30pm on Saturday, 23 January. This highly acclaimed band has appeared all over New Zealand playing their spirited and entertaining brand of Traditional Dixieland Jazz and their appearance here is much anticipated.

The band is made up of six seasoned pros who have been playing together for over a decade, honing their solo and ensemble skills. Their 2019 appearance in Wanaka was very well attended so be sure to get tickets early.

'The River City Jazzmen played an outstanding performance. The band was bright, with nice tight ensemble playing and superb improvisations, arrangements were innovative and very entertaining. Great to hear the old standards played with such gusto.' Michael Bain, President, Wellington Jazz Club.

'They are not the first Dixieland band that we’ve hosted in recent years, but by far the best. There was nothing old hat, tired or jaded about these ‘Jazz Gentlemen’. Their close harmonies, riffs and interpretation of traditional jazz standards, combined with a great sense of showmanship was exceptional.' Geoff Atkinson, Chairman, Taranaki Jazz Club.
