Soulful jazz Sunday
ENJOY a soulful Sunday afternoon at the Gladstone Marina with the final offering in the free Sunday sessions for the year.
Performing on Sunday will be JAG, a local six-piece smooth jazz band.
They will spark up your mood with their funky repertoire covering some of the best jazz tunes ever created.
JAG will perform from noon to 3pm near the playground area adjacent to the Marina’s main stage.
Sunday Sessions is a free monthly entertainment program provided by the Gladstone Ports Corporation, offering community members and visitors an opportunity to sample live performances in the beautiful surrounds of Gladstone’s favourite recreational parklands – the Gladstone Marina.
The event started on October 26 in 2007 and has attracted a strong following of supporters over the years.
Hosted by the then Central Queensland Ports Authority, the concept behind the event was to provide the community with an opportunity to enjoy live entertainment in a family-friendly environment.
The first act to ever perform at the Sunday Session was Sundance with their groovy beats and relaxing tunes from the 60s through to today.
Gladstone Port Corporation’s Jane MacDonald said bring along a picnic lunch, sit back and relax and enjoy an afternoon of music and great atmosphere.
The event would also feature a guest appearance by GPC mascot Curtis the Turtle, who will drop in and hand out goodies to the children.
“Our communications department is planning to revamp the whole concept for next year,” Ms MacDonald said.
“We are looking to do something a bit different but still provide free entertainment for the Gladstone region.”
