Jazz & Blues Weekend Named ‘Event of The Year’ for second consecutive year
“Murrindindi Shire Community Event of the Year” has been awarded to the Marysville Jazz & Blues Weekend for the second consecutive year.
Following the success of the inaugural Jazz & Blues Weekend in 2015, a small committee of volunteers worked hard to grow the event in 2016.
Thanks to their efforts it grew substantially with 153 performers including some of the best Australian touring acts, as well as local musicians and performers.
The event proved even more popular with ticket sales up by 30% and with attendance reaching over 1,000 over the 3 day weekend.
J & B Chairman Leigh Fraser said “To win the “Community Event of the Year two years in a row was a overwhelming honour.”
“Our Jazz and Blues Weekend provides our audiences with some of the countries best international and local Jazz and Blues performers.”
“The Weekend helps to support local businesses, adds substantially to the local economy and builds community spirit,” said Leigh
The committee is already hard at work promising an even bigger, better and brighter event for 2017.
