Tavern review

Jazzie’s Inn

Owner of Jazzie's Inn, Boysie Marokane.

In the tiny township of Wattville, Ekurhuleni, jazz artists and poets frequent a place called Jazzie’s Inn Tavern to feast on “all that jazz”. It was established in 1999 by Bro Boysie Marokane whose creative inspiration of jazz started out during his early years.

Sitting among his array of jazz CDs, a variety of jazz photographs and artworks, Marokane says he played at the Ekurhuleni Jazz Festival.

“My greatest dream is to see local jazz artists afforded the rewards and accolades they so much deserve. Jazz festivals must be in the true sense and jazz sessions should be used to promote and inspire upcoming jazz artists.”
