As announced at JazzWorks Jazz Camp, we're looking for your photos! And, as a small token of our appreciation, we will enter your name to win one of 5 prizes:
Images sent will be posted in our photo gallery under the following headings:
Select your favourite photos that match any of these categories and send them to me, Mary Moore at email@example.com. If you are able to downsample the images to 900 pixels in width, that would be helpful. Zipping images into a folder also helps speed transmission. One other option, if you are a DropBox user, is to place your photos in a folder in your account and share that folder with me using the email address above.
Names will be entered in the draw, to be held at our first jam session, Friday September 18.
We are hoping to get these up asap, so a speedy upload will be much appreciated!
Starting in September 2015 JazzWorks is very pleased to announce the Georgetown Pub will be our NEW host for our monthly JazzWorks Jam Sessions, on the 3rd Friday of each month, September to June. The Georgetown Pub has also offered us space for our monthly JazzWorks Board of Directors Meetings, before the Jam Sessions, and at other times - free of charge (in one of the small, closed- door rooms ). In addition, the pub will host a series of select Jazz at Lincoln Centre “Micro Concerts” (Live Webcasts from www.jazz.org/live).
Changing to Fridays – this will be necessary because of a conflict with Thursday nights’ regular NFL game broadcasts at the Pub at the pub – starting in late September to end of January
To solve this issue we will switch JazzWorks Jam Sessions to the 3rd Friday of each month, beginning September18th. We will announce the change to Fridays at camp as a trial, from September to the end of December. If successful on Fridays, we can continue for the longer term.
Cover Charge – Increase
We have increased the general cover charge to $8.00, while maintaining the special rate for Friends of jazzWorks, and for students at the original $5.
Te Georgetown Pub offers generous seating, 70 to 80 people (on the music side of the bar), and a better listening experience. Smaller rooms are also available for those who want to socialize.
The Georgetown Pub has a “rarely used” sound system, which includes a sound board. It will be available to be used by JazzWorks, in combination with our system, so that we can use all of the gear to our best advantage. The JazzWorks sound system can be stored in the basement. We are very pleased to announce that Alf Warnock will be able to continue as our sound man.
Food and Beverages
With delicious Pub Food and a nice selection of brews and beverages on hand, we know JW Jammers will love the new location! To learn more about the Georgetown, <click here>.
JazzWorks would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU to the Carleton Tavern for hosting our jams over the last few years. Great hospitality and service, but unfortunately a tough room to play in.
The highly successful JazzNhouse (Almonte) series of professional-calibre live jazz house concerts is now in its fourth year and needs to grow. Organizer Arnie Francis says "Our audiences have grown so much and so many jazz artists are looking to us for performance opportunities that (in order to grow) we need to export the concept to other neighbourhoods. It's a win-win for everyone." Currently Manotick is a front runner and Arnie is confident that the Village is a community that would welcome and support a 'JazzNhouse (Manotick)' series. A special JazzN.ca Manotick backyard concert on August 16th will test the water for local support of such a series. There are only a few seats left for this concert, which features The Chris Maskell Quartet from Montreal.
Arnie would like to launch a JazzNhouse (Manotick) 2015/16 season this fall. A search is currently underway for Manotick residents willing to volunteer the use of their homes to host one or more concerts in the 2015/16 season. Click here for the document ‘Hosting a JazzNhouse concert!’. If you are a Manotick resident and are interested, or if you know a Manotick resident who might be interested, please contact Chris Thompson at 613-692-5380 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
