news, local news,

Award-winning trumpeter and composer Matthew (Matt) Sweeney will be the featured guest artist for the Down South Jazz Club on Thursday March 24 at Club Sapphire. Matt, who is based in Canberra, won the coveted James Morrison Instrumental Scholarship in 2016, which included recording an album at ABC Studios in Sydney. His touring experience with James Morrison in Australia and the United States gave him a wealth of jazz knowledge and musicianship. He has performed with Wycliff Gordon, Sarah McKenzie, Kate Ceberano and the One O’clock Lab Band. Mattt will be backed by three local musicians, Paul Dion on keyboard, Sam Martin on bass and Ken Vatcher on drums who need no introduction as they have played for the Down South Jazz Club on several occasions. This entertaining evening will cost $15 for members and $25 for visitors with music starting at 7:30 p.m. Bookings can be made by emailing [email protected] or using the form on the WhatsOn page of the club website. You can also call Aileen or Kevin Walsh on 02 6495 9853, or just show up in the evening and pay at the door. The Club Sapphire bistro opens at 5:30 p.m. for those who wish to have a meal first.
