  • Workshops

Answers on an email to newportjazzfestmelbourne@gmail.com give us your preferred top three, or if you are an overachiever, put them all in order of preference. Or if you are an over over achiever, come up with some different ideas.

Band Wrangler: Colin Garrett: We have left this up to Captain Chaos himself: he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of almost all the bands we are likely to sign up for the Festival. We are certainly talking to a couple of big bands, and want to get some trad on board (they bring the biggest number of supporters). Plus the usual suspects.

Marketing and Sponsorship: in the capable hands of Margaret Michael – the original POCKOTL If you think you know what POCKOTL stands for, send in an e-mail. There will be a prize for the most creative suggestion.

Committee Secretary: Debbie Woodroffe. Currently AWOL, possibly snowed under with documentation, possibly not..

Venues: The Scout Hall is definitely in, still talking to Leroys, but not the Junction Hotel.

The Date: Hold the Festival at Newport on May 2nd, May 3rd 2020: confirmed We haven’t changed this date for several weeks. Good grief!

The Bands: The Captain is talking – to the Navy Band amongst others.

The Web Site Key words: reflecting what the Festival is about. No, Hortense, I do not have a clue either. Incomplete list: Jazz, Newport, Fest, Festival, Community, Musicians, Jam Session, Friendly (stole that one from Castlemaine, they probably don’t need it any more)
