This is our yearly memorial event honouring past president Geoff Herkes's passion for music and supporting youth.  This event allows young musicians to gain valuable live performance experience in front of a very appreciative audience.  Each year the Ballarat Jazz Club makes a significant financial contribution to the Performing arts Department as a result of this event.  Come along and support the next generation of jazz musicians!  Everyone is welcome to attend!

Back by popular demand..."the jazz ensemble is a versatile and sought-after group of Navy’s most skilled jazz musicians with extensive and colourful backgrounds in jazz performance, as well as considerable international experience.  

The Jazz Ensemble performs a diverse repertoire of vocal and instrumental jazz, from classic jazz standards, swing, bossa-nova and samba, to New Orleans and boogaloo. The ensemble represents the Royal Australian Navy at community events, official Government functions, concerts and open days and has entertained Prime Ministers and royalty. 

Playing for audiences within Australia and around the world, the group has supported and performed with many world-renowned musicians including Don Burrows and James Morrison."  An event not to be missed!
