Jazz in the Pocket

Hidden among the hardy andesite buildings of Dunedin are a disproportionately high number of great musicians. Simon Christie is a hydrographic surveyor with a guitar, a saxophone, and ear for jazz who desired to learn by playing with better musicians. He sought out a pocket into which to socket his musical desire and found this cafe and bar at the tail end of 2014. ‘Jazz in the Pocket’ has been a staple weekly event put on by Simon, despite often being off mapping far oceans, with a great deal of help from his many friends and fellow musicians.

Jazz in the Pocket every Thursday 2000 hrs - 2330 hrs.
