ABOUT THE MASQUE THEATRE
Tucked in between iconic Surfers’ Corner and Muizenberg Mountain Peak, the Masque Theatre’s proximity to main roads, highways, and public transport makes world-class entertainment easily accessible to all people coming from anywhere and by any means.
The Masque Theatre comfortably seats an audience of 165 and is built and equipped to provide a high-fidelity, uninterrupted listening and viewing experience, making the Muizenberg Jazz Festival a formidable festival for listeners, musicians and spectators alike. People coming to the different shows meet in the foyer for a drink at the beautiful bar and to mingle with the artists and other jazz fans.
ABOUT THE MUIZENBERG JAZZ FESTIVAL
The vision for the Jazz Festival is threefold:
- To provide a place for the artist and art form to thrive,
- To thoroughly entertain the audience, and
- To leave the surrounding community and audience enlightened, engaged and enriched.
The line-up for 2018 will feature 10 acts each performing an hour long set over the course of two evenings, as well as a Jazz photography exhibition in the foyer of the theatre. There will also be a series of music workshops presented by some of the star performers which are free to attend.
This is the second Jazz Festival in Muizenberg, which builds on the success of the inaugural event in 2017. The festival this year promises to be another fantastic event! We are excited to bring world-class musicians to the audience in Cape Town, and look forward to welcoming you to the shows.
Ulla Gosebrink, congratulations and thank you for pursuing your dream and putting on the Muizenberg Jazz Festival 2017 #MJF2017 It was a jazz festival where artists performed original music or the music of other South African musicians. Thank you to the artists who continue to play their own original music. May radio stations begin to see the light and play more SA music. Congratulations and well done to the support team and sponsors who believed in this event and those who implemented and did the work so that we could have a fantastic time. It was worth every Rand I paid. I am certainly looking forward to next year’s #MJF Well done to you and your team!
I went to the second night of the Muizenberg Jazz Festival at the Masque Theatre yesterday. What a pleasure! Beautiful music from MSMF, McCoy Mrubata and Buddy Wells. And if the Ella tribute lacked energy, trumpeter Marco Maritz certainly made up for it. I couldn’t stay for Ramon Alexander but I’m sure that was a great set too. Congrats to Ulla Gosebrink and Muriel Marco for staging this quality event. May they receive some serious (as in financial) support for the Muizenberg Jazz Festival 2018.
Just got back from the Jazz Festival in Muizenberg and heard Muriel Marco and her band, whom I knew from the time she lived as a student together with a friend of mine. In all these years I haven’t seen or heard her, and she’s a great musician! She manages her own band and the backstage of the Jazz Festival. I think she outdid herself and I’m thankful that I was able to be part of this evening. It was great! I got really spoiled and I got a CD of the music we heard this evening. Thanks, Thanks!!!
This weekend the first ever Muizenberg Jazz festival takes place, please do your part and get those tickets now!! to ensure we keep this great event on the annual calendar. I’ve had the privilege of getting to witness all the behind the scenes hard work by an amazing super-human team, Ulla Gosebrink, Muriel Marco, and Karen Jordi since earlier this year.
