The glory days of Great Gatsby and the swing-era of the 30’s & 40’s will be recreated in a grand Big Band Ball to celebrate the 40th Queenstown Jazz Festival. Enjoy an evening of dazzling big band sounds from Dunedin City Jazz Orchestra, led by jazz legend Calder Prescott, Queenstown Jazz Orchestra and the Wakatipu High School and All Saints College Big Bands.

Special guest vocalist James Tait-Jamieson will entertain with a bit of crooning and some scintillating saxophony.

Wellington’s premier New Orleans style swing blues band, the Drinking and Dancing Society, will round out the entertainment.

Complimentary bubbles served on arrival, with canapés all night and cash bar.

Dress-up formal or flapper, from Prohibition through World War II.

Proceeds from this event will go to the Wakatipu Youth Trust.
