Bands in Parks: Twilight Jazz by the River

Brisbane Band Events
26.03.2021 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Queensland Maritime Museum
Helen Johns


Kick back and watch the sun set over the Brisbane River from this beautiful vantage point near the Goodwill Bridge.  Before the city warms up to Friday evening, take some time to enjoy chilled jazz after work at the Maritime Museum with music by the Tom Watson Quartet.  Tom Watson is a Brisbane based jazz guitarist who is inspired by artists from the myriad of American music including country western, blues, roots and jazz.  Some of his favourite artists include Julian Lage, Bill Frisell, Blake Mills, Sonny Rollins, Oscar Peterson and Jim Hall.   Although he still admires country and blues, Tom has focused a large amount of time incorporating his earlier influences into his modern jazz vocabulary.  He will be joined by some of the best young musicians Brisbane has to ofer as they play their favourite jazz originals and standards throughout the evening.
