If you want to have a great time in a friendly atmosphere once a month on a Sunday afternoon, come along to one of our gigs.

The Ballarat Jazz Club Inc was formed in 1985 by a dedicated group of jazz lovers and musicians to present regular live jazz music in the Ballarat area.

Run by a volunteer committee for over 30 years, the Club is currently holdingĀ  its live jazz gigs at the Ballarat Golf Club on Sturt Street on the third Sunday of the month, when that date is available (see Events Calendar). Doors are open at 12.00 midday and the band plays 3 sets between 1.00pm and 4.00pm.

The Golf Club has excellent facilities, plenty of parking, friendly staff and a reasonably priced menu including a Sunday roast, with drinks at normal bar prices.

Welcome jazz and music lovers in general!

Admission is currently (2018/19) $10 for Jazz Club Members and $20 for non-members. Visitors are most welcome, but as some of our gigs sell out it is still advisable to book (see Booking details).

At every gig we have several raffle prizes, often including a CD donated by the band, so bring along some change and get lucky!

Musicians interested in performing at one of our gigs please email your details, bios, links etc to addressed to the Secretary who will forward your message to our Band Co-ordinator. We start to book bands from October the previous year so it pays to get in early.
