Buda Historic Home and Garden

Start: Sun 9th June 5 p.m. | End: Sun 9th June 7 p.m.

This Queen’s birthday long weekend, Buda is delighted to present a special twilight evening with the incomparable CHONK on Sunday 9 June at 5pm, in conjunction with the Castlemaine Jazz Festival

Chonk is one of Melbourne‘s hottest swing outfits specialising in the music of Count Basie and the Benny Goodman sextet. They bring an energy and authenticity to their music that excites both the ears and the feet. Combining the talents of some of Melbourne’s most established musicians as well as its rising stars, Chonk captures the fervour and passion of swing in the 1940‘s along with the creativity and edge of early Bebop. Whether you want to dance to stomping rhythms or sit and listen to romantic melodies, Chonk will have you grinning ear to ear.

Doors open 4.30 and tickets include finger food and there will be a bar available.
