Manly Jazz Festival

A dose of sun, a bit of nostalgia and smooth smooth sounds.

The Manly Jazz festival is kicking back into town this October, bringing its blend of New Orleans jazz, gospel, Latin and roots to the beach suburb for the thirty-ninth time. So perhaps this is the year you should make the effort, get on the ferry and get over to Manly beach.

Held in a variety of venues dotted along the beach, you're in store for a simultaneously calm and noisy time. Carl Lockett is flying in from the US to croon out some groove, and Darren Percival, Louise Perryman and Vince Jones are all on the bill. There's also nine-piece reggae band The Strides bringing some afro-beach-beat.

There will also be representatives from surrounding senior schools and their bands, no doubt with talented kids making you wish you hadn't given up your trumpet lessons all those years ago. Sounds like the perfect day for a dose of sun, nostalgia and smooth sounds.
