Roger Burke Quartet – 10th birthday of Jazz on the Deck!
Wednesday April 26th from 7.00pm
The Roger Burke Quartet (RBQ) is an almost 30 year year jazz cooperative on the NSW mid north coast , and continues to perform live jazz at the Federal Hotel , dubbed by locals as “Wed at the Fed”.
With the ongoing support of the hotel owners, Michael & Rhonda, the Federal’s Bistro section has resonated to this exciting jazz quartet on the fourth Wednesday of each month continuously since 2007, and this month proudly celebrates its 10th straight year of appearance at the hotel.
The Federal is one of very few venues in NSW which continues to feature and support regular live jazz events, and “Wed at the Fed” is thought to now be the longest continuous running regular live jazz gig in regional Australia!
The regular lineup of the RBQ includes Roger Burke (saxophone/flute), Bruce Stephen (double bass), Santo Cimino (guitar), and Pete Skelton (drums).
Most jazz nights feature selected guest players to join the regular band – this month there will be surprise guests to help celebrate this significant jazz milestone in Bellingen.
Come along with some friends on any fourth Wednesday and enjoy the great food and live music but keep in mind Wednesday 26th April in particular – it is sure to be a very special night!
There is no cover charge, but reservations are recommended – phone 66551003
