The vivacious High Society Jazz Group will again descend upon the good People of Wellington to celebrate, undulate and totally encapsulate the movement of jazz from the early 20th Century to now.

With American trained cabaret artist front woman Nicole Chesterman Kircher (NZ, U.S.A) on vocals and Phil Costello as M.C sax and conga, you can expect some fireworks of talent and personality, Bob Keeton on keys and organ, Greg Crayford on drums and Mike Duffy on double-bass.

High Society are the quintessential act that captures the naughtiness, the splendour, the sex appeal and the decadence of old Hollywood.

Three very successful North Island tours have been completed in already this year, celebrating their debut self-titled album "High Society". Jazz clubs, private functions and festivals have hosted this fabulous act and secured fans all over New Zealand including their sold-out 4-night residency at the Cabana in Napier for the 2019 Art Deco Festival.

Black Sparrow proudly present the return of Wellington's most popular and entertaining jazz group "High Society" doing what they do best, entertaining amongst the cocktail set, bringing a touch of Hollywood glitz and glamour!

So be there - don't be square and help celebrate all those before us, with us and after us... some surprises to be had, no show is ever the same. So get on the blower and book those tickets now, as everything will sell-out at the best jazz festival in NZ!
