Smooth jazz to ward off autumn’s chill at Britomart’s steamiest, sultriest venue, Orleans.

New Orleans and jazz go together like beans and rice and while we can’t pop down to the French Quarter for a music fix, Orleans in Britomart is the next best thing.

To celebrate the sounds of the US’s most exciting music centre, Orleans has paired up with the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries for a night of truly sumptuous jazz. The Jazz Department at University of Auckland’s School of Music will serve up some of its tastiest musical practitioners to the music hungry crowds at Roukai Lane from 7pm til late on April 12.

Featuring Stallone Moments, WD40 Trio, Gianan Trio, and Bewyldabeast, not to mention lashings of soul food and the best New Orleans inspired liquor, The Jazz Sessions is set to be a night of soulful autumnal extravagance.
