The Blue Zoo
The Blue Zoo 'Jazz, Folk & Blues' gigs are beginning to take off. Terry wanted 3rd Ear Music to inject some life into the suburbs by promoting a few laid-back gigs. We've done it in the mountains, on the beach, in forests & stadiums - so why not in a laid-back dining & wining space? We are going to try and do this at least once a month. If it takes off, there will be a few summer evenings outside in the garden. Be warned - it's acoustic. It's laid-back & it's unplugged - so as not to disturb the Animals, Plants & the East Coast Radio format. Neigbours? What neighbours? They're OK - they join in!

There was another one of those extremely popular music evenings - "laid-back & casual" soft jazz, folk 'n blues - at the Blue Zoo, Mitchell Park, Durban on Wednesday 28th February.

The concert featured Alan Judd (Guitar), Terry Rosenberg (Piano), Dan Choirboli (percussion) & David Marks (Guitar) & introducing the wonderful voice of Mary-Ellen Blackman to the Blue Zoo audience.

Popular well known ballads, soft jazz & touch of blues & some new original songs will be on offer as well as the Blue Zoo's famous menu & exquisite setting in Mitchell Park.
