Southport Jazz Festival 2006

THE 2006 Southport Jazz Festival was again a huge draw for crowds from all over the UK and further afield. The event, despite a few glitches caused by weather and other factors out of the hands of the organizers, ran successfully. The event featured once again, the fantastic JazzCoTeck Dancers, but this time they had two, very attractive, young ladies who performed just as well, if not better than the lads! Sorry lads, see ya at the Southport Weekender… Also the event had our online radio station’s favourite jazz band DFQ, performing around the town, not just in one venue but in three! The Sefton Youth Jazz Orchestra put on a stunning show as they get ready to go down to Birmingham next Saturday, to compete against other youth jazz bands in a national competition... Good luck, and if you keep the standard you played at in Southport this weekend you will not need it! It was puzzling to see a Mersey Beat band Sons of Mod added onto the list of jazz bands, but what the… we popped along and covered anyway as it is to be one of the last times the band will play in Southport for a long time because they are packing up and going to London. Again, good luck but don’t leave it too long before you come back home!

The weekend ended at the Arts Center with the Mayor of the Metropolotan Borough of Sefton, Councillor Thomas E Mann and the Mayoress, Mrs Jean Lilley watching a fantastic display of musical magic by King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys.
