A six-piece jazz band will illuminate the Longford Parish Hall next week.

The Longford Jazz Club will host the second of its monthly concerts on Wednesday, March 21, with the nameless band slated to play a number of classic jazz tunes. 

The two-hour concert will also feature American trombonist Monte Mumford. 

Organiser Don Ives described the concerts as “very relaxed and very friendly”. 

“It’s a very congenial night,” he said.

“Most people know each other and they’re also becoming familiar with the band and they have an association there now.”

The concert will start at 7.30pm at the Longford Parish Hall.

Entry for the night is $10 per person.
