Ipswich's Jazz, Wine and Blues festival on this Saturday

Hold onto your hats and buckle up for a rockin' ride with some of the country's elite Jazz and Blues artists.

One of Ipswich festival's "must do" events, the Jazz, Wine and Blues from 1pm this Saturday at Queen's Park, is ready to lay down some mighty cool beats to delight audiences once again.

Ipswich Events Corporation Executive Chairman, Paul Casos, says we are excited to present an amazing line-up of talent.

"We recommend anyone who loves music to come along. We have one of Australia's lead singing front men, the dynamic Frankie J Holden teaming up with the incredible sax genius Wilber Wilde, and Skyhooks original drummer Freddy Strauks".

"The Mojo Webb Band sizzle on stage with their original brand of blues and roots music that will blow the roof off, and if that is not enough we have vocalist Tyrone Noonan, Ingrid James and her talented quartet, plus local band Tiger Street" said Mr Casos.

"WestMAC Big Band jazz ensemble in the American tradition will have a 19 piece band on stage boasting a powerful trumpet line-up, full saxophone section, rich trombones and a dynamic driving rhythm section, directed by Mr Shane Hannan, and led on Saturday night by Mr Neil Flottmann".

Warming up at 1pm Jazz Wine & Blues invites everyone to sing, dance, and groove along or sit back and relax to the steady flow of music, enjoy the food and be treated to a fine selection of regional wines at the Capral Vineyard.

A brand new edition to this year's Jazz Wine & Blues is the Helloworld Travel Expo until 4pm and the Ipswich Day and Nighlight Tours from 1pm - 7.30pm, presented by Ipswich Trike Tours.

Jazz Wine and Blues is presented by Channel 9 News, Ipswich City Council, Heritage Bank, St Andrews Ipswich Private Hospital, Australian Property Lawyers, West Moreton Anglican College and Capral.
