Optional meals and drinks are available from the Golf Club at Golf Club prices. Bookings for meals are not necessary.
Hot Club Swing performs an exciting and highly infectious style of music that could be best described as French Gypsy Jazz. The music draws from an exotic palate of classical, jazz and Gypsy influences, painting on a canvas that can be eloquently French, starkly rustic or darkly and romantically Gypsy. The group is mainly inspired by the virtuosic Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, who originated this acoustic music in 1930’s Paris.
The Ballarat Jazz Club Inc comes together to promote the playing and enjoyment of jazz music and related genre; to assist and encourage the development of young musicians through our strong partnership with Ballarat High School Performing Arts Department; to provide regular community musical entertainment and activities for those interested in the art of playing and listening to jazz music; and to bring local, national and international jazz musicians to Ballarat for the enjoyment of the community.
