Show time: Inverloch Jazz Festival president Bob Pritchard and treasurer Jim Warren are ready for the sound of music this Labour Day long weekend.

THE Inverloch Jazz Festival continues to attract top quality musicians to its annual event.
The Festival hits Inverloch this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday with a mix of the finest musicians one has seen in the past 19 years of performances at Inverloch.
There are a lot of new bands coming with great credentials which include the well-known  GilAskey Big Band and The New Melbourne Jazz Band, sponsored by the RACV Inverloch Resort.
They will no doubt be joined by their large group of followers, passionate about the band’s Dixieland music, said festival president Bob Pritchard, who is anticipating the weekend will be well remembered for many years.
Many seats are still available at the registration desk at the Inverloch Community Hub. The festival starts at 6pm, Friday, March 9 when the best young performers in the region take to the stage as the South Gippsland Allstars in a free performance.
