Coffs Coast Jazz Festival

The Coffs Coast Jazz Festival 2022 is a 3-day jazz music festival held at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium

The Festival is the first of its kind at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium (CHRC) and is a 3-day celebration of performing arts, culture, community and collaboration.

Beginning on Friday 11 November, festival goers will be treated with a spectacular opening night concert. The concert will be a double feature: the collaboration between How About That and the Pablo Blitzer Manouche Quintet. Join us afterwards for a complimentary drink.

Saturday 12 November brings afternoon workshops, delving into “jazz analysis of a standard” with Glen Hodges and “harmony in improvisation” with Chris Frater. This is a unique learning opportunity and is open to all ages, abilities and instruments/vocals. After a light afternoon tea break, you will then be able to sit back and enjoy our second concert of the festival: a funk fusion band presented by Danny Stitt.

Sunday 13 November will have morning workshops – a “rhythm and bass” with Danny and Phill Stitt and “melody in improvisation” with Pablo Blitzer. A light lunch will then be available, followed by our final afternoon concert featuring the band Triptych alongside community musicians.


Full Season Passes (adult and concession) are now available on Eventbrite for purchase. Passes include access to all three concerts and four workshops, at a discount of 22%. Passes are limited, so get in quick.

Individual tickets to concerts and workshops will be on sale from the 24th of September 12pm.
