Posted:Brackets and Jam

Friday February 15th from 7 PM

South St Club South St, Ipswich

Tickets: Adults - $10.00 Students 12-18 $5.00 U/12 FREE

Brackets and Jam is a fun filled night where almost anything can happen!

An eclectic mix of featured artists, impromptu performances and 2 mega jam sessions that gets everyone involved one way or another.

All performing artists are welcome to come along and drop their name in the hat for their chance to perform or just join in the jam sessions.

Not so talented or too shy? No problem just come along and enjoy the wonderful talent Ipswich has to offer or boogie away during the jams.

Money raised will go toward performing arts projects for Ipswich residents

Featured acts for February are:

Aunty Rhonda Collard - Elder, singer and dancer

Dancing Tiger Belly Dance - Ipswich's ONLY professional belly dance troupe

Caribbean Trading Companies - Argh Pirates, Sword fighting and the odd kidnapping!

We are looking for one more feature act for the 15th !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bring your drums, bring your bells bring your voices and your dancing shoes and grab your 5 mins of fame!

Brackets and Jam has been running in NSW for 10 years with great success and now this community based event has come to Ipswich.



Would LOVE to see some poi here.

For information please phone Idell 32887077

Posted:Monies raised from these events will be invested back into the local performing arts community. Sponsorship of events. Funding for courses or competitions etc.
Any one who performs will be investing in opportunities for themselves and fellow entertainers

I've got a good friend and spinner who was a long time Ipswich dweller (no more I'm afraid) I'll ask him if he knows anyone. Sorry to hear you were let down, nothing crazy or dangerous I hope?


Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film
