Jazz Season Kicks Off In Franschhoek

The 11th season of Jazz on Friday kicks off on 30 October
The immensely popular Jazz on Friday, presented in its sublime setting at La Brasserie – formerly La Fromagerie – is now in its 11th season and attracts audiences of between 200 and 300 guests each week. It is very much part of the Franschhoek tourist season and is the only place in the Winelands where you will find top jazz musicians from the Cape playing every week.

Cape Dutch Connection is a jazz quintet with vocalist Charlette Dickson, Wesley Rustin double bass, drummer Jack Momple, Derk Blaisse on piano and a guest soloist on saxophone, clarinet, flute, trumpet or trombone.

The band plays jazz in the style of Benny Goodman, George Gershwin and Cole Porter as well as Brazilian Bossa Nova’s in the style of Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto, and even some Cape Goema. The song Pata Pata is a public favourite.

La Brasserie provides delicious outdoor-style food and the wines of the Franschhoek valley.

JAZZ ON FRIDAY from 30 October 2009 until 2 April 2009
Entrance R 130 per couple for a bottle of wine and free jazz.
Tables will be held until 6 pm.
BOOKINGS 021 876 3420 or info@labrasserie.co.za
