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.

  • Andrew Eames (bass)
  • Rob Mercer (drums)

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)

Bar Oussou, 653 Sydney Road, Brunswick (see map)
