Jags and Jazz at St John Fisher College

St John Fisher College, Bracken Ridge

Musician Robyn Brown and the SJFC Rock Band will have the crowd rocking at the Jags and Jazz event

ST John Fisher College will throw open the gates to classic car enthusiasts and music lovers on Sunday August 4th, for the inaugural Jags and Jazz day.

College Principal Cathy Galvin said at St John Fisher they like to think outside the square, always seeking opportunities to showcase the unique qualities of the college.

“The physical attributes of the college, with 15 hectares of land, lends itself to an event of this kind and we felt that it would be a great backdrop for beautiful cars and great music,” she said.

Ms Galvin said it will be a pleasure to host an event that warmly embraced classic cars of all kinds, but in particular car club exhibitors like, “Old Girls on the Road” who are all about quashing traditional roles and celebrating a women’s car culture.

Showcasing a range of classic cars, including Jaguars, Corvettes, Chevy, Porsches and Mustangs, the event will kick off with the jazzy sounds of the Robyn Brown Quartet, supported by St John Fisher College’s very own Rock Band and St Patrick’s College’s Big Band. 

The event, sponsored by Bracken Ridge Councillor Amanda Cooper and local gym, 24 Fit, Bracken Ridge, will also include a range of local food trucks, including Aspley local Steve Murray of Vintage Mobile Coffee serving patrons delicious food and drinks from 10am-2pm, with a sectioned off 18+ bar available for adults.

Kids will be kept entertained with face painting and a jumping castle.

Children and school students receive free entry to the event with adult tickets at an affordable price of $10 with all proceeds going to St John Fisher College Bursary Fund.
