About The Event
Hot Potato Band are recruiting musicians between the ages of 9 and 18 to join them in performing at the upcoming Cronulla Jazz and Blues Festival. All participants will partake in a collaborative 60 minute workshop to learn and prepare a classic street tune to later perform in a street parade that will transform Cronulla Mall into New Orleans. With a focus of having fun whilst playing music, this one-off workshop and performance opportunity is open to all Primary and High School students who are learning a musical instrument. All registered participants will be provided with a music pack of charts and tutorial videos in preparation for the performance. Through choreographed movement, dancing and singing, students will experience the infectious energy and fun of making music as they perform alongside the HPB team.
