What we're about

Virtuoso Live Jazz Music is difficult to find in Auckland. Especially hard to find is commendable Live Jazz Music that Jazz Aficionados can listen to. Jazz is usually background music in most venues and it is impossible to hear the splendid sound because of noise and chatter. Auckland Live Jazz is dedicated to finding venues that support brilliant Live Jazz that discerning audiences can listen to without the constant clutter of conversations and restaurant racket. We are interested in finding listening clubs. Our motto is "Shut up and Listen". Any connoisseur of Live Jazz Music who wants to hear the Jazz go down should join. The simple reason is Live Jazz performed by professional musicians is an absolute joy.
