It’s The Ellington Jazz Club’s 10th Birthday! On this very weekend in 2009, we opened our doors for the first time, and we’ve been filling the venue and the city with beautiful music ever since. We’ve put together a weekend showcasing Perth’s most revered jazz performers in honour of this momentous occasion, and of course, in honour of the late, great Graham Wood, the club’s co-founder.
