What a year it's been! This Sunday 16th, come and celebrate the year that's been with one last hurrah at the Lomond Hotel (225 Nicholson St, Brunswick East) in Brunswick East before we break for Christmas.
Music from 5:30-8:30. Free entry, meals available.
What's in store for 2019?
We're kicking off the year with a visit to the Bellarine Peninsula, playing a cafe-style gig (that means you get a meal) at the Queenscliff Uniting Church. This is the place we recorded a few of the tracks on our very first album back in 2010! The acoustics are sublime and we're looking forward to bringing our special brand of trad back to the stage there.
Tickets are $42 including a meal. Bar available from 6:30pm, showtime 7pm.
Book now at trybooking.com/ZRNA, or call 03 5258 2854 for all enquiries.
Then, in February, we're heading to Port Fairy for the third annual Port Fairy Jazz Festival -- a wonderful weekend with a huge variety of bands on dozens of stages across the town.
Fri 8—Sun 10 Feb at various venues in Port Fairy
We will be playing two sets on Saturday afternoon and evening, and leading the congregation in song at the jazz service on Sunday morning.
Visit portfairyjazz.com.au for tickets and more information.
For something closer to home, bring a picnic hamper and come and sit and relax on the lawns of Ringwood Lake Park, listening to our brand of classic hot jazz, along with roving tunes from Total Fire Band.
You can also meet your Mullum Ward councillors and enjoy pre-show family activities including face painting, art activities and children's games.
The free family activities will begin at 6.30pm and the music will begin at approximately 8.15pm. Entry is free, and ice-cream and coffee will be available to purchase on the night.
And, we're very excited to be invited back to the Eltham Jazz, Food & Wine Festival, which is held across five stages within the Eltham township, featuring a mixture of the best established and up-and-coming jazz, blues and soul acts.
Sat 23 Feb, 4:30—5:30pm in Eltham
On top of the great music, there will be free children’s entertainment, and a mouth-watering selection of gourmet foods and locally produced wine, gin, beer and cider available.
Shirazz will be playing at 4:30-5:30 on Saturday afternoon, on Stage 1.

We'll keep you up to date as we roll into 2019, but until then, if we don't see you at the Lomond this Sunday, thank you for being with us in 2018, and all the best for a safe and happy holiday season!
