BAT JAZZ! (article first published : 2002-09-14)

Jazz is on the upswing in Durban with café jazz enjoying huge popularity and a number of venues offering jazz events on a monthly basis. However, regular weekend jazz has been scarce on the ground until now!

A new energy and some fresh concepts instigated by Jerome Shoonburg of Southern Grooves, manager of The Deck and Molweni Restaurant, will transform the BAT Centre into the place to be, over every weekend offering three exciting nights of music in a row.

From the first weekend in September jazz lovers will be able to choose from three events: Friday nights will host fine quality free afro-jazz on the Deck, with 'happy hour' from 17h00 to 18h00 and specials on chicken, chips and draught beer from 18h15 to 19h30.

On Saturday nights the restaurant will invite you to dine a la carte and then enjoy a couple of hours of good dance jazz, from Latin American sounds to hot local grooves! Expect to hear bands like Vertigo, Consonance and Neo Jazz Quartet. There will be a cover charge of R25 a couple which will include a free bottle of wine. With a five-star chef in the kitchen and a brilliant new menu, this will be the place to make memories!

Sunday evening fills a really important gap in the Durban jazz scene and offers serious jazz followers a chance to listen to the best original music available. Patrons can enjoy a reasonably priced curry buffet and then settle down to listen to the likes of Melvin Peters, Feya Faku and Neil Gonsalves share their deep jazz. There will never be a reason to stay at home again!

For more information call the Bat Centre on 031 332-0451. – Gisele Turner.
