Now in its third year, Berry Jazz is a meeting place for local residents and visitors to experience some of Australia’s finest jazz artists. Steve Hunter with his quartet of all-star musicians will open the festival. Steve is one of Australia’s most acclaimed bassists. The newly refurbished Berry School of Arts will be the centrepiece for a family show featuring the big band sounds of Great Scott! The Music of Raymond Scott with Peter Dasent of ABC Play School fame, and led by Sam Golding of ‘The Glorious Sousaphonics’. Families will love the zany and familiar music of Raymond Scott. Scott’s melodies, known to millions through their adaption in over 120 classic Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and other Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies animated shorts. Come along to the free performance of fun foot-tapping jazz in the Rotunda in Apex Park. Bring a picnic and enjoy the fun. The show-stopping finale is ‘Ella, Billie and Louis’, from the songbook of jazz legends Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong with French chanteuse Tricia Evy. This is sure to be a sell-out event. Berry Jazz is produced by SIMA.
