Tuesday 21 - Mike Nock Trio (Sydney) [TICKETS]
The much-loved pianist will be bring his Sydney-based trio to CJC.

Redefining the piano trio for the electronic age, German-American Benny Lackner brings his Berlin-based band to CJC for the first time.

Thursday 23 - Francisco Torres (USA) & Rodger Fox [TICKETS]
Two master trombonists unite with ample support from Kevin Field, Ron Samsom and Ollie Holland. I call this one "Two bones and a dog".

Festival Pricing: Prices for the internationals in the festival will be:
$35 admission

Festival pass: all 3 events: $90. Select the festival pass option from the Mike Nock gig. 

Presale tickets are available from eventfinder for all 3 events. We've capped the capacity a bit to provide a good experience for those who attend, and we expect demand to be huge, so get in early... AND, please do make sure you go and see some other gigs around town during the festival. We want this festival to keep going and growing. Only you can make that happen.

Peruse the full lineup at and then check back again in a few days, because there still soem good events being confirmed on a daily basis."
