WAYJO Plus1 Matched Funding
Dollar-for-Dollar Matched Donations through Creative Partnerships Australia

We’ve been lucky enough to secure a place in Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 program. Donate now and have your contribution matched dollar-for-dollar!

In 2018, we have a focus on Women in Jazz, building the profile of female jazz artists and showcasing their talents.

Donating directly to this program will cover artist fees, transport from Australia and overseas, and accommodation. And the best part is, every donation will be matched to a maximum of $25,000.

Our program of guest artists will be announced at our Jazz Under the Stars concert on November 24, but donate now to get in on the ground floor of this exciting program in 2018.

To donate, please visit givenow.com.au/WAYJOWomeninJazz - matched contributions close Fri 18 May.

WAYJO's Women in Jazz 2018 Season is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1.

Thank You To Lotterywest

The good news has started early in 2017.

WAYJO have been fortunate to secure a grant from Lotterywest to purchase a range of equipment to help us deliver our program.

Best of all, this grant allows us to purchase some new equipment for the bands, from amps and music stands to microphones, as well as – and we’re a little pumped about this – a bunch of kids instruments to take to our Jazz for Juniors concerts.

Every year Lotterywest grants millions of dollars to over 1,000 community organisations, and we’re grateful for their ongoing support.

Members of WAYJO also had great fun being part of the new ‘A Lot Happens When You Play’ advertisement campaign, check out the press below!

Welcome To Our New Website

Welcome to our new website!

We’ve been beavering away behind the scenes for a few months now to create a fresh new look for WAYJO, and we’re pretty excited by our new branding and web platform.

Our focus this year is on recognising our band members with our #facesofwayjo campaign… look out for the great images shot by Tom Greble as we promote our shows.

We’re also keen to get the word out that WAYJO is all about “Big Bands, Big Sound, Big Talent”. We think that reflects everything that is great about WAYJO and our musicians and is the start of our members musical story.

Big thanks to Digital Union for their help with our new branding and website. Let us know what you think.

Here’s to a sensational 2017.

Simon Keen
General Manager, WAYJO
