Banding together for jazz festival
THE sight of three very cool jazz enthusiasts crooning in Palmerin Street was an element six Warwick businesses envisaged for this year’s Jumpers and Jazz festival Street Party.
But when funds fell a little short this year, Classic Dimensions’ Robyn Fraser was not about to let the vision of cool cats swaying the main street pass the Southern Downs by.
“We felt live jazz music by a roving band would be a wonderful addition to the festival so we banded together to bring the Blue Poppy Jazzy Band to town,” Mrs Fraser said.
“At the first public meeting for the Jumpers and Jazz Street Party we came up with the idea but unfortunately there was not enough money in the budget.
“This was something we could do for the community and I think the band will enhance the town’s atmosphere.”
The three-piece band will wander around Palmerin Street from 10am to 1pm today so if you see them grooving down the street or crooning inside shops be sure to let the music take over and sway to their memorable beats.
The appearance of the live music trio was made possible by the Bank of Queensland Warwick branch, Wattle-Do Craft, Bryson’s Place, Presence on Palmerin, Classic Dimensions and the Centrepoint Motel.
