At last, Jazz Notes Augmented

To create the party atmosphere of our Melbourne Music Performers events, we decided to augment Jazz Notes with some extra talent by inviting some individuals whom we heard during the Festival.

Wade, Ann, Kevin and Daniel dashed from their Warrawee set to find that some of those player hadn’t turned up so things weren’t looking good for a while. (Thanks for being there, Michelle!).

Special thanks to the sax- and trumpet-players who volunteered to take the stage. They MADE the night! There were so many people dancing (on and off the stage).

Pippa fronted the band for a couple of songs, including Birth Of The Blues and was then surprised to find herself singing backing vocals with Nicole Thorne and the band for Wade Morgan’s rendition of Mustang Sally.

On the following day (at the Picnic), several people told us that this was the best event of the Festival.

And, on Facebook:

‘Sunday night was UNSURPASSABLE… A ONE OFF.. Such a blast..’
