We Love Jazz Party Vol.3 【SJ50 Edition】



IMPORTANT : Concession tickets are NOT SOLD OUT YET!!!

They are bought ONLY AT THE DOOR with valid ID :)

You can never describe ‘Jazz’ in one word. It branched out since birth and has been embracing many other musical elements as it grew. We Bon Goût Music have always believed in the 'process' than definition of it - it's an on going music, it's alive!


This is Bon Goût Music (BGM)'s third instalment of We Love Jazz Party (WLJP), which in our last 2 versions were called "We All Love Jazz Party". We decided to simplify it.

What kind of party is it?

Through the WLJP series, we aim to re-introduce Jazz & improvisations and styles from different influences at each installation, featuring live jazz performances and other fringe ideas to present the music from fresh new angles. For this edition we will be partnering with our good friend Kult Kafé (Sideshow) at their garden area on beautiful Emily Hill. Yes, it's family, hipster, kids, jazz nerds and elderly friendly.

Some tips about the event here:

* Ticket does not include drinks or food

* There will be food available at the venue (sushi, veggie burgers, popiah & popsicles!)

* Free seating (there are 100 or more chairs)

* Dress casually (it's an outdoor venue with no aircon)

* No outside drink & food allowed (the bar provides tap water)

So, what kind of 'Jazz' are you talking about then?

This particular installation of WLJP series features somewhere around at that forward thinking era of Jazz history, Bebop and Straight ahead; so interestingly intricate, so cool and so swinging. You will be experiencing all that in different configurations. Come and be-bewitched by all the music curated only with love & passion.

This year 2016 marks the 50th Anniversary of Singapore-Japan Diplomatic Relations (SJ50).

Being a long-running Japanese enterprise in Singapore and working for more than 20 years with local Singaporean artists, BGM cannot be happier for this special year (as well as every single day)! Our line-up is a great mix of SG/SJ legends and luminaries of our jazz scene here, with a very special guest flying in from Tokyo especially for this celebration.
