WAYJO brings the birthplace of jazz together with the big band sound. Jazz made for dancing, stomping your feet and having a good time. That’s what New Orleans jazz is all about.
WAYJO welcome bandleader and trombonist Mariel Bildsten, direct from the USA, to play and lead the Monday Night Orchestra. Recently seen in Perth with the Evan Sherman Big Band (Perth Festival, 2017), Mariel brings her experience of playing with jazz greats including Wycliffe Gordon, Dee Dee Bridgewater and more to Downstairs at The Maj.
The sound of New Orleans comes to Perth in May, so pack your dancing shoes and prepare to swing.
Mariel Bildsten appears thanks to funding provided by the United States Government.
* WAYJO is also offering a Concert-Workshop for schools Friday 3 May, 3pm. Booking is essential, with a maximum of 100 attendees per workshop. Tickets for staff and students are $12 each, then $10 for every additional concert/workshop booked in the year. More information and bookings via the website
