Port Fairy Jazz Festival

And what of the Port Fairy Jazz Festival weekend?

A good time had by all. Quite a few regular and occasional jammers were seen wandering the streets of a windy but sunny Port Fairy. Only their fourth Festival and this is well established on the annual roster – probably the biggest Festival in country Victoria already.

Annie Smith, sporting three broken legs, a suntan, and a cheerful attitude was there. So was the Jess Dams Quartet, Breakout, and surprise hit of the Festival, Jack Morris’ Port Phillip Showband who put up a cracker of a set – acceptance for the Newport Jazz Festival confirmed. Festival regulars such as Ron Anderson, Roger Clarke and Sarah Maclaine all shone. Of course there was some rubbish as well, but we weren’t responsible for all of it…

Jess, Mac, Peter and meself put in a fund raiser at Narrowong on the Friday night – they budgeted on selling 30 tickets and ended up selling 70 – Jess had a great night and they have asked us back.
