The Unity Hall Jazz Band have been in residency at the hotel since before 1970. During this time Gary Wolford has been the bandleader, and has collected wonderful stories and anecdotes of the Sydney Jazz scene and the colourful characters within its influence.

The UHJB are currently playing Sunday afternoons upstairs in The Workers Bar from 3pm, except for the first Sunday of each month when we have the Dan Barnett Big Band in residence. A bit of Jazz on a Sunday arvo? Beautiful!
