On this very weekend in 2009, The Ellington Jazz Club opened its doors for the first time. Those doors have stayed open seven nights a week, for fifteen years since! We’re celebrating this milestone with a three day festival showcasing our diverse and vibrant Jazz scene, in honour of the late Graham Wood, the club’s joint co-founder with Bernard Kong. Please join us to celebrate the beating heart of Perth’s Jazz community, to commemorate the rich history of The Ellington Jazz Club and to toast to it’s bright future!
