THE Jim Beam Uprising Beach Resort Festival of Music, Dance and Lights promises to have something for everybody when it kicks off tomorrow.

With a host of local performers all geared up for the show, organisers have promised the young and old that they will all have something to enjoy.

Festival stage and production manager Rob Verma said the acts covered the genres of jazz, fusion and reggae.

"Really we've got a lot of versatility in the musicians and bands that will take the stage on Saturday," Mr Verma said.

Performers who will take the stage include local bands, Blue Monk, Exotica, the Pro am band and vude Queen Laisa Vulakoro.

"We will also have the Tongan Young Five performing and Quintiki's Revival on show. These bands will be joined by Australian band Itchy Feet and world renowned performer Jay Hoad," Mr Verma said.

He said the bands would be joined by special guest artists Bill Longo and Al Short along with seasoned local performers the Tom Mawi Trio and Ken Janson and the Hearts.

Mr Verma said kids could also expect to be entertained with many activities like limbo dancing during the day section of the festival.

"Children under 15 will not have to pay for a ticket to the event and they will also receive free lunches thanks to Kundan Singh."

Mr Verma said revellers at the music festival could also expect first class sound and lighting as well during the show accompanied by bonfires and fireworks displays during the night.
