PART OF THE JAZZ & CABARET FESTIVAL 2020.
Since 2010 the 8-piece ensemble The Jac has been a leading voice in the New Zealand jazz scene, pushing a modern sound with their distinctive, through-composed compositions, tight ensemble playing and impressive live shows. Based in Wellington and drawing talent from Melbourne and Montreal, the band brings together musicians from the jazz, classical and metal scenes.
Celebrating 10 years as a band with a new 10-track album, “A Gathering” is the strongest statement of their sound to date. Featuring the long-form compositions that have become their signature, their new music also includes more open, textural improvisations, and pieces that are heavily influenced by their 2017 tour of Korea, where they collaborated with traditional/jazz fusion group Black String.

We’re right in the middle of the Terrace… Find Oxford lane (between Terrace Tavern and Amazonita), then go up the stairs behind Little Fiddle, or go up the elevator between Bangalore Polo Club and Amazonita. You can also access it from Shands Lane.
It’s about a block from the bus exchange, and if you are bringing your car then there is street parking down Hereford Street or use the Lichfield Street Carpark, it’s just a stone’s throw away!
