The Thredbo Jazz Festival 2017 is a celebration of the best in Australian Jazz and Roots Music. The Line up for this years event is a cracker. Lisa Hunt and Forever Soul will make a debut appearance in Thredbo with Lisa’s extraordinary voice setting the Soul free for some late night partying. Australian Jazz Legend Bob Barnard is back in Thredbo again with the Barnard Family Jazz Band and for more dancing than a cuban conga line Chukale is bringing the Latin Big Band back to Thredbo. Another favourite Big Band back for 2017 is the Kirrawee High Band with their youthful energy and prodigious talent and for lovers of modern improvisation the Matt McMahon Trio is back weaving their spontaneous spell.
Traditional Jazz Fans won’t miss out with the Unity Hall Band Band coming to Thredbo for the first time. Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentleman will also make a first time appearance at Thredbo Jazz 2017 bringing their Baltic bravado and good times. Also playing Thredbo for the first time is Gregg Arthur reviving Nat King Cole and the dinner suit. George Washing Machine, Liza Ohlback, Lionel Robinson and many more will also play at Thredbo…..
