About the Royal New Zealand Air Force Jazz Orchestra

The Royal New Zealand Air Force Jazz Orchestra has been swinging for more than 80 years.

The reserve musicians come from all walks of life and include top music students, freelance musicians, and working professionals from the Wellington region.

We’re fortunate to these incredibly talented jazz musicians on our doorstep, including The likes of Michael Taylor, Ben Hunt, Oscar Laven, Andre Paris, Leonardo Coghini, and Darren Mathiassen to name a few. 

As well as drawing inspiration from the likes of Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and Thad Jones, they’ll also feature a number of works from members of the band.
