Regarded as one of the most exciting young jazz pianists around, Tal Cohen is a fine talent who brings to the stage a refreshing approach to jazz piano, not just as a pianist but also as a refined composer.  Tal has spent the last 18 months writing material for his long anticipated album “Yellow Sticker”. The album is comprised of a selection of jazz standards arrangements along with Tal’s quintessential compositions. The record also features acclaimed perth musicians Jamie Oehlers on tenor saxophone, Chris Tarr on drums and Pete Jeavons on bass. Click here for tickets

Join the effervescent Libby Hammer and her band for the best feel-good show of the season when they present an entire program of jazzy Christmas tunes including cuties such as All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth, Cool Yule and Santa Baby. There'll be a few sentimental favourites to get you feeling warm and fuzzy, but when the eggnog kicks in, you may well end up Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree, so bring along your sweetheart or your whole gang and swing into the most wonderful time of the year in style. Click here for tickets
