The 2014 Gawler Jazz Festival, an initiative of the Gawler Business Development Group Inc., is an event not to be missed! The Jazz Festival commences with the Rotary Village Fair, on Saturday 1st November, where the Adelaide City Jazzmen will bring their Dixieland sounds to the family and community event, creating a carnival atmosphere. The entertainment will continue throughout the weekend and includes the new addition of ‘Jazz for Breakfast’.
As locals know, weekend breakfast is a popular event in Gawler, which will be made even more enjoyable with the sounds of Jazz reverberating thru the town. Popular Jazz bands appearing for the breakfast shift 9.00am-12.00pm include; Al.Q.Bon and Jazz in Cheek at Café Sia; Michelle Drummond Duo at Conversations Café; Luke Thompson Duo at The Java Hut; JazBuz at Café Nova*; Dukes of Jump at Gawler Café (Commercial Lane) and Ruby’s Mayhem at Taste On Main. Reservations are recommended.
The exciting program continues into the afternoon and night with all genres of Jazz from gypsy to traditional, in some of Gawler’s most historic and iconic venues including; the Willaston Hotel, Eagle Foundry B&B, the award winning Fig22 (at the Wheatsheaf Inn), The Exchange, Prince Albert Hotel, Golden Fleece Hotel, Kingsford Hotel and Café Nova. Artists include local and Adelaide based musicians Renee Pounsett, Various Nefarious, Dukes of Jump, Lauren Henderson, Soul’D, Crafty & Friends, Al.Q.Bon, Ellipsis, Atlantic Street Band and Adelaide City Jazzmen. Our venues have some of the best dining in the Barossa and the event should prove to be a delight to the senses, with dazzling music and dining.
