Thanks to everyone who came down and supported The Dilworths set at the Jazzgroove Festival last night. Thanks to Carl Morgan or filling in – you smoked it! ┬áIt was such a great crowd and a big turn out for all the bands that night. I couldn’t stay around but heard that Elana Stone’s Band rocked the house.

For those that missed it, there was a marching band on Saturday arvo marching down Foveaux St drawing people out of the shop fronts in a wicked New Orleans style jam. It was so great and inspiring to see so many of the top sydney musicians that I’ve grown up admiring to be getting together jamming to promote the festival.

I’ll be heading down tonight to check out Gerard Masters, the Waples Brothers and the Vampires. I’m sure the Mothership will be a smokin’ gig too.

Big shout out to the Jazzgroove Association, but in particular Mat Ottignon and John Hibbard for the great efforts they went to make it such a successful festival. Hopes high that it happens again next year.
