The Banyan Bay Ensemble as well will hit the stage with some great early New Orleans jazz and blues.
“We were keen to bring some leading Hong Kong-based jazz musicians to the attention of the public, while raising the profile of the Musicians Foundation,” – according to Chris B, founder of the Musicians Foundation, and The Underground, a leading independent Hong Kong live music promoter.
She adds – “As the music industry slowly recovers following almost two years of restricted operation, many musicians are still struggling to find work opportunities at pre-Covid levels. With live music venues and events gradually resuming activities, we urge the public to support local music by getting out there and attending Hong Kong’s world-class shows and performances.”
Expressing the themes of “Nature. Leisure. Pleasure.” the Chillin Jazz Fest invites everyone to come and relax on the Front Lawn and the Courtyard at Gold Coast Piazza with family and friends to enjoy all the smooth, cool music.
