The only event of its kind in the South Island; it provides a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to learn from those who are top class in their field; and for you to be among the first to experience the South Island’s next wave of musical talent right here in Marlborough.
If you have attended Southern Jam before you’ll know that the performances include easy listening blues, swinging rhythms and big brass show stoppers. Most importantly the music is of the highest calibre, which is why the event attracts big name judges… all leading national or international performers!
In the lead up to the Gala Concert, you’ll be able to attend the public performances. As part of the audience, not only will you enjoy great entertainment, you’ll also experience the wonderful hospitality Marlborough has to offer at local eateries, bars and social clubs. A full schedule of venues and dates will be showcased here in May.
