Johnston St Jazz presents a live concert directly to you, wherever you are.
Live streamed to facebook video Thursday March 26 20:00-21:30.

"I remember meeting each of them for the first time, separately, as young musicians, earlier this century. Back then, they all shone. A decade+ of full time musical work later, they are joining the greats"...
You can watch for free, but please pay these otherwise-unemployed musicians as if you were coming to the gig - 100% goes to the band.
If you still have an income, but you're working from home, #donateyourcommute at Tim Clarkson Trio live-streaming

Phillip Johnston & Paul Cutlan ONLINE TONIGHT 19 March 2020

Tonight, we are only online. We'll be streaming from 8pm on the Johnston St Jazz facebook page, but the doors will not be open. Please join us at

The Uniting Church in Australia decided last night to cancel all events in all of it's properties. It's the safe decision. We were planning to live stream from the venue, but we'll be doing it from somewhere else instead. We hope to continue to present live music every Thursday night on the internet. Maybe it will be from the musicians back yard (just like Philip and Paul's photo below), hopefully we will have an option to donate to the musicians.
Tonight we have a stage, lights, and Peter Nelson's microphones. Open a bottle of wine and join us from your lounge

Summer evening WIRES Fundraiser

Elisabeth Harnik (Austria) with Phoebe Bognár Freya Schack-Arnott Clayton Thomas Two sets of spontaneous music for Piano, flute, cello and double bass, Thrusday January 23, 2020 Johsnton St Jazz, 81 Johnston St Annandale

Johnston Street Jazz, 7.30 Thursday 23 January 2020
starring Elisabeth Harnik

Austrian pianist Elisabeth Harnik will perform her first every Australian concert, in the company of incredible flautist Phoebe Bognár, virtuosic cellist Freya Schack-Arnott, and amenable double bassist Clayton Thomas. Clayton has performed with Elisabeth in concerts in Berlin, Graz and Ulrichsburg, and now finally Australia.

It would be very nice to fill the room and make her feel welcome. It would also be nice to use this opportunity to help raise funds. There’s no shortage of need out there, but we’ve nominated to give 20% of ticket sales to WIRES, wildlife rescue.

Jazz on Johnston tonight: Elisabeth Harnik on piano all the way from Austria. Our beloved Sydney musicians Clayton Thomas on double bass. Phoebe Bognár on flute and Freya Schack-Arnott with the cell
