Manawatū Jazz Club

The Club supports and encourages jazz musicians and their audiences by holding public concerts on the second Sunday of the month. The Club and Rodger Fox organise annual Manawatu International Jazz and Blues Festivals, featuring local, national and leading international artists. The Club celebrated the fiftieth year of the Festivals in June, 2018.

A feature of the Festival is a competition for high-school students playing in Big Bands and jazz combos, which supports and encourages these young players to be the artists of the future.

Club members enjoy discounted tickets for the monthly concerts and Jazz and Blues Festivals.
