  • Jazzamunda success!

    Picture this: a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Kalamunda (aren't they all?)

    The date is 8 March 2015. Stirk Park is a gorgeous place to be.

    The weather is warm, a gathering of people are picking out cooler spots on the grass in the shade.

    Some people have brought deckchairs to sit on, others blankets, some with coffee and cake.

    The Hills Big Band sets up in the soundshell, and kicks off with some laid-back jazz.

    The band laze through some favourites.

    Deputies for the day were Pete Evans (drums), with
