Jazz In The Vineyards
The Trumpets are polished and the drum-skins are tightened as Hope Estate gets groovy. This spring will see our iconic estate come alive to the magic of Motown, you will experience everything from old favorites to toe tapping classics. Who better to perform these classic Motown hits than international jazz great, James Morrison, and his hot swingin’ band. Expect to hear all the hits like ‘Heard it Through the Grapevine’, ‘Dancing in the Streets’, ‘Get Ready’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, ‘What’s Going On’, ‘My Girl’… and plenty more. Jazz in the Vineyards will be returning to the original location where jazz first started in the Hunter Valley, on the property of Hope Estate (formerly Rothbury Estate), located right in the heart of Pokolbin.

In news that will thrill fans across the country, it’s time to relive all that this summer when John Farnham performs songs from ‘Whispering Jack’ for a special series of A Day On The Green concerts including Bimbadgen, Hunter Valley on Saturday, December 1. John and his amazing band will play the much-loved 1986 album, plus a selection of other greatest hits in what will be John’s first performance – and our 65th show since 2002 – at Bimbadgen.
