Event Details

WAYJO presents our 2017 Fundraiser, celebrating our history and looking towards our future in this special event, Downstairs at the Maj, Thursday 29th of June.

In what will be a very special occasion in WAYJO’s history, we launch the WAYJO Hall of Fame and induct our inaugural member, former WAYJO Musical Director Roger Garrood.

Roger’s legacy as a friend and an integral part WAYJO is still felt today, his influence reaching past and current WAYJO members, and he is a much loved part of WAYJO’s family. Guest artists will pay tribute to Roger on the night, and play some of Roger’s most loved jazz works.

Hosted by media personality Tina Altieri, WAYJO’s past, present and future will be on full display. Guest artists include Grammy winner Lucky Oceans, Harry Mitchell (Winner of the Australian Jazz Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year 2017), Ben VanderWal (WAAPA lecturer) and Ricki Malet (current WAYJO Monday Night Orchestra Musical Director).

SHOWAYJO, the joint project featuring exchange participants from WAYJO and SHOWA University of Music, Japan will take the stage for a unique cross-cultural set, and the Monday Night Orchestra will round out the night with a set of big band jazz.

Tickets can be with or without cheese platter and wine for your table, and we will have door prizes, raffles, and silent auctions. Some of the donated prizes and gifts include tickets from Perth’s leading arts companies, an overnight stay at Crown Metropol or The Alex Hotel, free dance classes from Swing It!, a private WAYJO performance at Gallop House and many more.

Every dollar raised at the fundraiser will be invested into WAYJO’s 2018 program, as we celebrate our 35th anniversary.

This event will be the culmination of WAYJO’s 2017 fundraising campaign, and we hope to see as many people there as possible in support of our great company.

Tickets $40 – $100: email admin@wayjo.com or phone 9471 1950.
