Well, the Covid19 roller coaster continues!
Last Tuesday’s announcement by the Prime Minister places Auckland back at Alert Level 3 and the rest of NZ back into Level 2 for three days until midnight tomorrow night Friday, with a review tomorrow.
Under Level 2, businesses can open to the public subject to physical distancing, attendance record keeping, groups of customers to be separated by at least 1 metre and served by a single person, alcohol served only with a meal, and a maximum of 100 people.
For this Sunday 16th August, the ‘Jass Band’ and Meow and the Jazz Club Committee are all keen to continue with the gig with the precautions under Level 2 for safety and health, so we propose to continue with the gig. We will let you all know if there is any change to that as a result of Government direction.
There will be a lower capacity for seating due to the requirement for separation, so members are advised to prebook through Moshtix or by phone booking as per the instructions in the Newsletter, as the availability of door sales will depend on the total bookings and remaining capacity, if any. Hopefully we will be able to ascertain that on Saturday.
Regards and keep well,
The next Gig on Sunday 16 August 2020 at 5.00pm-7.00pm

Formed by Nick Granville and Kelly Moneymaker, the group features longtime friends - drummer Lance Philip, and bass player Nick Tipping. The Jass Band will be performing a mix of jazz, blues, New Orleans based jazz-blues, intimate arrangements of classic rock songs and latin feels.
