The four string banjo in Sydney, NSW...Jazz banjo.....The Sydney banjo band rehearsing at Club Ashfield in Sydney...details of a special previous rehearsal.....and future dates in 2017

The Sydney Banjo band still continues strongly and the last rehearsal for 2016 is coming up on the Thursday 15th December 2016...the several of us will be at the 71st Australian Jazz Convention at Ballarat in Victoria from the 26th to 31st December 2016. 
The SBB will play two sets there with other banjo players from other areas in Australia who can't get to the Sydney rehearsal due to distance etc...we are looking forward to meeting up with them....

Same venue, Club Ashfield in Charlotte Street, Ashfield, beside Ashfield Railway Station ...playing starts 6.45pm to 9pm...many of us meet earlier for a meal in the Club's bistro or for socialising. 
The bistro opens 5.30pm....

 I mentioned a previous special rehearsal.....
On 6th March 2012 I organised for those interested in the band to attend the former Sydney Harbour ferry, the "South Steyne" moored in Darling Harbour as a restaurant..where we played and then had a meal.....
A couple of photos.... 

 Sadly the "South Steyne" was removed from the Darling Harbour mooring, supposedly for wharf restoration and has been at a mooring in Berry's Bay for almost a year....
