Tauranga Jazz Society’s top priority is the health and safety of our audience, artists, staff, volunteers, sponsors, and community. Following the recommendation of the New Zealand government and public health officials we regretfully announce, the 58th National Jazz Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. This concert is cancelled.
Festival favourites Shirazz are joined by Melbourne City organist Scott Harrison in a celebration of the hottest trad jazz and Wurlitzer magic.
Rising from its home beneath the Addison Theatre stage, the Wurli adds a dash of pizzazz to Shirazz's sparkling sound.
Shirazz and Scott Harrison will present a programme of New Orleans favourites alongside entertaining originals and arrangements that shows off the best of the band and the organ.
Shirazz's six-piece lineup, with three soaring horns, vocal harmonies and a driving rhythm section is complemented by the hundreds of pipes, piano keys, xylophones, drums and effects of the Addison Wurli - drawing you into a cinematic wonderland of jazz.
