Alan Tudge MP:
Did you know that Knox is home to its very own jazz museum?
Australian Jazz Museum located in Wantirna, is Australia’s leading jazz museum and has an extensive collection paying tribute to Australia’s significant contribution to the world of jazz both locally and overseas.
I was pleased to recently help them secure a small federal grant to buy a new computer system which will enable them to expand their online archive.
When open, they regularly host live performances which I’m sure will get right back into full swing as soon as they are able to.
