THE FIX returns alongside very special guest Dr Kristian Borring on guitar!
10.45–11.45: The Fix “Hour of Power”
See this tight-knit, swinging band do their thing as they stretch out on a great selection of jazz standards and originals, from fiery hard-bop to emotive ballads and everything in between.
11.45 onwards: Jam Session
A hallmark of the band’s long-running residencies has been the jam element: getting special guests up for impromptu collaborations, featuring a variety of national and international visitors, local legends, and – most importantly – providing a platform for Perth’s emerging jazz talents to perform with new people and in a welcoming, supportive, and exciting setting.
*** With Kristian on guitar, tonight’s instalment offers some extra opportunities for pianists, with the club’s beautiful grand piano ready and waiting for special guests to sit in! ***
There are a few new initiatives:
—Specific set times for the jam: come after your gigs!
—Reduced entry fees ($5!) for WAAPA students and other visiting jammers (contact the band via https://www.facebook.com/thefixjazz to get the discount code in advance or make yourself known to door staff)
—A list of some fun tunes that we like to play that you might be keen to check out: https://bit.ly/3rMPpyU . We love to play these but are also completely happy to jam other tunes that you call – don’t be shy, get amongst it!
Not everyone will play every time, but we’re passionate about contributing to a culture of fun, collaboration, and development, so come down and support the gig and the scene, meet some new people, have a hit, and hear some great music!
Whether you’re a musician looking to jam or a music lover looking to get into the weekend in style, this gig is jazz at its most essential — it’s most definitely for you!
