Manly Jazz hits the beachfront this long weekend and it’s the perfect time to try something new. So whether you check off this whole list, pick the one that sounds good to you or take a lucky dip, just make sure you get out and enjoy some jazzy tunes.

  1. Swing Dancing – learn some new moves or show off your best. Swing the afternoon away at the Sydney Road Swing Stage on Saturday from 4 – 5.30pm.
  2. Jazz Improvisation Workshop – Take your improv from doodling to perfection under the guidance of festival headliner Rodney Whitaker
  3. Band Workshop – Jazz band students and band directors will learn about interpretation and expression, soulfulness and more from festival headliner Rodney Whitaker
  4. Jazz Parade – Bring your instrument and join the fun as one and all parade along the Corso at 11.30am on Monday.
  5. Bubbles, beers and all that JAZZ - The Festival Bar is the place to be seen while you hear all the best and brightest jazz tunes. Sip on local craft beers and eloquent organic wines while nibbling on gourmet slow roasted burgers as you bask in the sun.
