Gin and Jazz

Gin and jazz are proving to be a made in heaven with a popular new monthly event at the Darwin Railway Club.

Music coordinator Adele Mammon says the event has been a hit in its first couple of months, with a thirst for a gin and jazzy affair in the Top End.

“It’s been really popular,” she says.

“I think Darwin lacks a bit in the jazz scene, this is partly the lack of venues but also the lack of opportunities for musicians – but we’ve had so much interest and enthusiasm for a jazz-style bar, so that’s why we’re doing this once a month.”

Each month features a different line-up of musicians jamming on stage with plenty of punters strapping on their dance shoes to get into the tunes.

This month’s event lines up with St Patrick’s Day, so deck out in green and enjoy the post gin and jazz St Paddy’s Day festivities, too.

“Irish Jazz is just not a thing,” Mammon says with a laugh.

"So we'll have Shalom Kaa and Megan Atfield on vocals, Nick Yates on saxophone, Claire Kilgariff on flute, Bill Grose on guitar, myself on double bass, and Greg Jensen on drums."
