What a wonderful way to celebrate 25 glorious years! Four days of stunning performances and collaborations, streets alive with cool jazz and rousing blues, young musicians playing their hearts out on the Reid Street stages….we loved every minute.
So thank you to everyone who helped make this year’sfestival a success. Thank you to all the dedicated jazz and blues fans, and those new to jazz, for coming along and throwing yourselves into the relaxed scene and this very special anniversary program.
Thank you to every one of our performers, volunteers, sponsors, donors, home hosts, vendors, staff, the Operations Committee, Friends of the Festival and the Wangaratta community; your continual belief in our community, our festival and current and future generations of jazz and blues musicians is inspiring and we couldn’t do it without you.
And, finally, thank you to our Artistic Director, Adrian Jackson. The success of this wonderful event over 25 years is in no small way due to your dedication and uncompromising commitment to excellence.
