ULTIMATE GUIDE: Jazz in the Vineyards 2018

Your guide to getting into the groove of jazz at Hope Estate, Sat 24 November

A celebration of good times, friends, fantastic music, food and wine in the centre of picturesque Hunter Valley Wine Country. Here are our handy tips on getting into the groove for the upcoming Jazz in the Vineyards gig at Hope Estate, Saturday 24 November!


Jazz isn’t just jazz! And, local band The Rehab Brass Band will highlight this very fact, warming the stage for a most talented lineup. The ladies take the limelight with Safire Rose playing fave jazz classics including Nina Simone being followed by Emma Pask with her splendid ‘Lady of Song’ show. Next on the bill is the charismatic jazz icon Grace Knight who will have the crowd suitably dazzled to welcome Australian actor, singer and songwriter, Tom Burlinson and his hot swingin’ band!

And, it wouldn’t be a true celebration of all things JAZZ without the star himself, the inimitable James Morrison. So, get your dancing shoes on and practice your moves because artists of this quality will surely have you twisting into the twilight.
