If you didn’t know already, Johor Bahru (south of West Malaysia) will be having its inaugural jazz festival this weekend, from the 26th Feb until 1 March 2015 .
Check out the poster for details and links to tickets:
This festival is organized by the same group of people that organized the annual JB Arts Festival (10 years and running!).
As you can see, there will be some notable artistes, both local and overseas, who will be performing there. I’m proud to say that I will be part of the David Gomes Jazz Ensemble & Junji Delfino, and will be performing on the opening day of the festival, 26th February. We’ve got an awesome line-up of musicians: David Gomes (vocals & piano), Junji Delfino (vocals), Patrick Terbrack (tenor sax), Eddie Wen (trumpet), Hanafie Imam (bass), Shawn Kelley (drums), and of course, yours truly on alto sax.
I’m looking forward to this festival, and it will be an awesome hang with some friends, and also loads of fun music to play. If you’re around the hood, we hope to see you there. If not, make a trip down over the weekend and join us for a weekend of fun.
