Launched in 2016, The Brisbane Vocal Jazz Festival was created due to the popularity of the club’s Jazz Singers’ Jazz Night, which demanded a more visible platform with a wider audience.

Artistic director Ingrid James initiated it with a team of jazz-loving volunteers.

In 2022, Brisbane Jazz Club celebrates its 7th anniversary, reaching beyond the jazz community to both mainstream and specialist audiences.
