Jazz it Up at the Village
The Caxton Street Jazz Band had its origins in Caxton Street, Petrie Terrace, Brisbane, when the Caxton Street Jazz Club opened its doors on July 24th, 1977. The Club was accessed via lane between the old building Baroona Hall, and the then Prince Alfred Hotel (now LA Hotel). In the audience was Bob Mair, who went on to become the Band Leader.
