The Sydney Jazz Hot Club Open Mic Gig will provide a house jazz band consisting of Piano, Janos Horvath, Bass, Ros Mayne, Drums, Pierre Della Putta, and Guitar, James McNabb. Mark Gordon will host the evening and manage the performance schedule. Singers and instrumentalists can perform with the band, and Mark Gordon will allocate the spots by rotation.
A PA, is provided and participants must know piece well, including the key, the tempo and the feel of the song for the benefit of the band. You are welcome to bring three copies of a well constructed jazz chord chart. However most songs are available on the ireal app and the band uses this much of the time. The evening is primarily for jazz and latin music standards, and being a restaurant, the tone is to be kept mellow, and no rock!
Café Parisienne French Restaurant will offer a dinner and show all night happy hour drinks and beverage menu for the gig, in addition to their usual menu. The happy hour provides $5 red and white wine (sauvignon blanc or merlot), beer, and a range of $15 meal options
