The Victorian Jazz Club became incorporated in 1968 and is a “not for profit” organisation, formed to perpetuate the jazz genre of music, and to give enjoyment to the lovers of this type of music, together with work for the many jazz musicians in our community.
During 2019 we hosted 20 Saturday night events, 12 Wednesday night events and 6 day-time events plus 2 special night events. A total of 40 events.
The Club operates under a constitution based on the Act’s Model Rules, approved by the Department of Consumer Affairs. A committee of 11 volunteers is elected from the membership of the Club annually and these people see to the booking of jazz bands, running of special jazz events, providing work for musicians and enjoyment to jazz followers. They organise volunteers to do door duty at these functions, the supply and preparation of raffle prizes for various functions, a group of volunteers to organise, set-up and dismantle sound equipment at every function, compiling and printing of the Club’s newsletter and magazine, together with liaising with other Australian Jazz Clubs of which are situated in most States of Australia, and with links to many overseas organisations.
Currently the VJC has only the New Years Eve event.
New Year’s Eve
The VJC host a New Year’s Eve dinner dance each year, which has proved to be very popular and well attended. It is held at the Clayton RSL where the chef goes to remarkable lengths to provide a delicious sit-down table service meal, the committee goes to great lengths to decorate the room, and a top local band is hired to help see in the New Year.
