About The Rookies

Melbourne cult jazz quintet The Rookies are staying weird in these times of uncertainty by digging deep into their idiosyncratic jazz identity. Support The Rookies as they continue to create and bring people together during these gig-less times.

"It is with heavy hearts that for the first time in five and half years we are unable to perform at The Rooks Return or anywhere in the world for that matter. Community is at the heart of what we do, and we cannot in good conscience continue to ask people to gather at a time when the most vulnerable members of our society are at such great risk. The sooner we stay home, the sooner we unite stronger than ever on the dancefloor.

Our industry is being decimated before our very eyes. We have enjoyed the immeasurable privilege of supporting ourselves through playing gigs and touring – honestly there is no better feeling than seeing your smiling faces on the dancefloor – but the truth is that now we are unemployed and in a less than enviable position of needing to support ourselves and our families with no prospect of work for the coming months (eeeeep!).

The good news is that not even the apocalypse can stop The Rookies – we need jazz now more than ever!!! We’ve put our best minds together and reckon there’s a chance we can keep this ship afloat, but we need your help! We are planning to live stream our Wednesday night gigs every week and there’s a whole host of other goodies that we will make available for you too. Check out the different levels of support (tiers), there should be something for everyone. Every little bit helps. If you want your Wednesday nights back with us, this is a small thing you can do to help us survive until we get to the other side. Please do what you can and, if like us, you are strapped for cash - we still love you and we will continue to stream for free so you don’t miss out.

Remember, powerful things happen when we gather, and for now it is time to gather our thoughts, hearts and minds, and prepare for the time when we can dance together again."
