Jazz legend Rodger Fox appeals for public funding ahead of New Orleans conference

The Rodger Fox Big Band has been invited to represent New Zealand at the 2024 Jazz Educational Network Conference in New Orleans early next year.

However he says his application to Creative New Zealand to fund the trip was declined.

It comes as Creative New Zealand looks to completely overhaul its funding model from March next year to try and alleviate competition. 

It's left Rodger and his band short of $89,000, with the tour costing a total $182,000.

They're now appealing to the public for help

Rodger Fox joins Nick Mills on Wellington Mornings.
