Anyone else going?

I'm going with a couple of mates this year & we got a rather good deal for a 2 bedroom unit with spa & great views of town & river for a very nice price.
The people we booked it from quoted a price without thinking of the fact it was fest time so a great bargain as we should be paying around $980 but we will pay $580.
I'm staying for the week they have to come home after the fest for work & were splitting the bill 3 ways - somehow i think i may of got the best end of the bargain.

We hate organized people, you should be ashamed of your self Bing, currently I can say no more than hoping to go.
First artist announcement still a month or more away.

Heading out for the East Coast / Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, / Tangled up in blues.

I will be there. My travelling companions have scorned the move to Batemans Bay but are still going to Narooma anyway! I shall reserve my judgement. Local businesses were unimpressed by the move, although the mayor thought it a fantastic development.

Darling Harbour Jazz & Blues Festival



From big band sets to intimate jazz sessions, the 2010 Darling Harbour Jazz & Blues Festival promises an eclectic weekend of live music from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 May.

Now in its 20th year, Sydney's biggest and best free music festival will entertain and inspire you with a stellar line up of home-grown and international jazz, soul and blues talent.

Swap your working-week blues for Friday night grooves with the funky, Afro-beat and reggae sounds of The Strides. Then take a trip to Motown and hear the greatest soul music hits courtesy of legendary trumpeter James Morrison and his 11-piece band.

On Saturday and Sunday the entertainment heats up with the rhythmic ballads of small town blues and the high energy sounds of big city jazz. From the world-renowned, deliciously addictive sound of Harry Manx to the stylised beats and trademark vocals of Ash Grunwald to the enigmatic Jeff Duff and his explosive big band.

Or, if you're looking for something a little more intimate, head to the jazz club on the deck of the South Steyne, or relax and enjoy the mellow sounds of the Jim Pennell Duo over yum cha at the tranquil Chinese Garden.

You can even grab a piece of the spotlight for yourself and show off your own jazz, blues, soul or R&B skills at the Open-Mic Stage. The best new talent will win a guest spot on the Aquashell on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

So, whether you want to be surrounded by music legends or become a legend yourself, grab your friends and head to Darling Harbour for a feast of live music this May.

Criminal that Harry Manx clashes with D.I.G. Clashes aren't just confined to Easter weekend.

Glad it's not on in June, as I wouldn't have been able to go. As it is, I may have to walk down there for a couple of those treats. Blues Preachers, Backsliders, Dave Brewer/Lucky and The Hands to finish. Nice Saturday there.

Waffles:I'm driving from Newcastle (a quaint outer lying suburb of Sydney). Not sure about passenger numbers as yet. Maybe give me a gentle reminder a bit closer to the date. Bring your raincoat.

Mr Bongo $580 divided by 3 divided by 7 equals $27.61 which equates to about the same as a Backpackers.

That is alot cheaper than you paid at Narooma.

I will be coming again,but I don't know about my side-kick.

He said he wants to save up enough money to shout his metalhead drum playing son an all expenses paid trip to Bluesfest 2011,so he can view musicans of the class of Narada "The Weapon" Michael Walden.




"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

Better get a sat nav this year....

Us Newcastle folk still chuckling over how you guys took a wrong turn at Wollongong and ended up here on your way to Narooma!

Good to see that a change of dates this year hasn't affected the habit of rain for the Darling Harbour Blues and Jazz weekend....... Still tossing up a stroll down to Harry Manx this afternoon, then off to the Flood indoors in Surry Hills.
