Roger Fox

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of our beloved Patron and friend, Rodger Fox.

Rodger was a special friend as well as Patron for JIM and gave us excellent advice and guidance in our early years – as well as his superb big band music. He encouraged and supported JIM’s promotion of local, especially young, musicians and gave his personal time and inspiration to our Fresh Jam collaboration with students and teachers at our Wairarapa colleges.

We’ve lost a special musician, friend and mentor, and our thoughts are with Erna, Rodger’s family, colleagues and band mates.

His gig is over. It’s a sad time.
