Chisnallwood was one of 5 primary school jazz bands to be part of Junior Jazz Jam 2017 held at Rangi Ruru School.
The performances were adjudicated by Scott Taitoko and Gwyn Reynolds from ARA Music Arts. Here are some of the comments:
Strong, confident, energetic and very precise.. Great to hear an original tune Dylan, well done. Keep up the composing and lyric writing! .. You all look like you’re having fun and are really getting into the music. Brilliant stuff Chisnallwood. Great to see lots of solos shared around the band and loved the band moves in Oye Como Va! Very well-rehearsed and you’ve all done some personal practice; all band members played their role with confidence. A great presentation!
