Fresh festival sound

THE cellos are being tuned and saxophones polished now the official line-up for this year's Jumpers and Jazz in July festival has been announced.

Warwick Tourism and Events CEO Tracy Vellacott said the bands which would filter through the Rose City during the 10 days were either local, new or ones you wouldn't want to miss.

"I'm loving this year's jazz program; it's exciting to keep the festival fresh and we love making new jazz connections," Mrs Vellacott said.

Headlining the festival is Brisbane-based band Scat, which has made its mark internationally, and promises to wow Jumpers and Jazz audiences.

Also stealing the limelight will be the James Whiting Trio which will perform at the Warwick Credit Union street party on July 28.

Other bands include the Warwick State High School Big Band and Stage Band, Southern Downs Big Band, Pangea Music, Aperitif Jazz Ensemble, Caxton Street, Sarah Collyer and Elegance Jazz, Freud Squad, Clem Four and so many more.
