Gala Dinner, Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival, Lake Mountain

On the eve of the Melbourne Cup, 150 guests gathered at the Lake Mountain Alpine Resort for the presentation of awards for Australia’s best sparkling wines.

Set in the strong landscape of skeletonized trees killed by the heat of the bushfires of Black Saturday, 2009, this was a striking venue.

The wines were accompanied by a gourmet dinner and the music of Jazz Notes, playing a range of vocal and instrumental jazz along with some pieces from the pop repertoire.

Jazz Notes at Bar Oussou 04 Nov 2012

With Juliane suddenly indisposed through illness, we were fortunate indeed that Marge Hamilton and Chelly Parisi were available to step into the breach. And they carried it off very well with enthusiastic renditions of some of our repertoire as well as some songs that we hadn’t tried before.

So, for our last Sunday at Bar Oussou, our line-up was:

  • Chelly Parisi & Marge Hamilton (vocals)
  • Ann Craig (flute)
  • Kevin Blazé (guitar)
  • Andrew Eames (bass)
  • Allan Smith (drums)

Jazz Notes at Bar Oussou 30 Sept 2012

It was an enthusiastic and sizable audience. The appreciation was infectious and benefited the playing – things just came together.

Brought in some passers by, including a dancing toddler!

People came … and stayed.

Mary turned on a great barbeque – it was very good value and especially during Happy Hour.

One last session: Sun 7 Oct 2012, 4-7pm

Debut of Jazz Notes

Jazz Notes made its debut on Sun 15 April 2012 at the Casey Food, Wine & Jazz Festival in the grounds of the Old Cheese Factory, Berwick.

Fronted by Pippa Wilson, the line-up comprised Jon Magill (saxophone), Kevin Blazé (guitar), Kelvin Legg (vibes and saxophone), Paul Bonnington (bass) and Adam Donaldson (drums).

The day commenced with an instrumental set and was followed by two vocal sets.

It was the first time that music had been included in the festival and it proved very popular. The gardens provided good shade for the audience but not for the band!
