Free Live Music | From 1 April to 6 May 2022

QPAC’s beloved Green Jam is back this Autumn with a program of awesome acts featuring musos on the higher side of 50 who show you can rock at any age!

Every Friday from 5:30pm, Green Jam’s free live music on the Melbourne Street Green has been a mainstay for those wanting to support local artists from around South East Queensland, to wind down from the week with colleagues and friends, and wanting to discover something they may never have heard before.

Gather a crew, pull up a chair or lay down a blanket, and relax into Green Jam's twinkling vibes under the stars. Round it off with a drink from the bar and enjoy a delectable dish from the QPAC Cafe!

Please check back in or join the Facebook event to stay up to date on all things Green Jam and which artists are performing each week!

Upcoming Artists

  • The Argonauts | Friday, 6 May 2022

    The Argonauts are three argo-naughty boys who bring you both well-known and long forgotten music from the 40s and 50s.  

    Jason (double bass/vocals), Tim (guitar/vocals) and Geoff (drums/vocals) are always pleased to present a smorgasbord of musical styles - rockabilly, jump blues, honky-tonk and country bop are always on the menu when they hit the stage. As well-known musicians in the Brisbane rockabilly scene for many years, don't miss the chance to catch The Argonauts in action!

  • [PAST ARTIST] Mama Juju and The Jam Tarts | Friday, 1 April 2022

    Mama Juju & The Jam Tarts are four all singing, multi instrumentalist musicians of a certain age and attitude who prefer being on stage entertaining audiences to staying home. Breaking stereotypes in the music industry and flying the flag for women over 50, their music is an eclectic mix of old and new, original and re-envisioned songs with jazz, folk, blues and rock influences. The focus is on songs which show off their rich vocal harmonies, clever instrumentation and exciting song arrangements.

    Mama Juju & The Jam Tarts always create a fun, upbeat vibe at any event with their infectious energy, quirky personalities and sometimes a touch of naughtiness. The band features rockin’ drums, bass, guitars, soaring flute, harmonica, ukuleles and whatever other instruments take their fancy. Come and join the party!

  • [PAST ARTIST] Diddly Squat | Friday, 29 April 2022

    Diddly Squat are an “all-girl” band of friends who got together in 2009 “to have fun & make some noise”. Despite knowing “diddly squat” about music, they decided to have a go anyway, and have been spreading the joy ever since.

    Their repertoire includes an eclectic mix of “folk-rock” including old favourites from the 1950’s to 1990’s with a sprinkling of originals, and lashings of fun. Diddly Squat were featured as finalists on the ABC EXHUMED TV series 2013. They have enjoyed performances at Redfest, Peaks to Points Festivals, LGBTIQ Over 50's Expos, IndigiDayOut, Karuna & Wynnum Markets, and on ABC Radio. Their single "All So Ordinary", penned by late band member Kathy Ridgway was released in 2017.
