IRISH saxophonist Stevie Rice is looking forward to rubbing shoulders with local artists when he performs at the Fiji International Jazz and Blues Festival which kicks off in Suva this week.

Rice has jammed with legendary artists such as Irish music superstar Van Morrison and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.

"I am excited to be a guest with Billy TK Junior in Fiji this year and look forward to hearing some great Pacifika music.

"I have had the opportunity to play with some outstanding musicians from the Islands based in New Zealand and hope to collaborate with like-minded players in Fiji over the weekend."

NZ bands the Strait Shooters at the Holiday Inn and Juice On The Loose at the Royal Suva Yacht Club will start the festival rolling at 6.30pm on Thursday.

Local boy Knox performs at the Holiday Inn at 7.45pm, followed by De Ja Vu at 9.25pm and Akuila Qumi at the Royal Suva Yacht Club at 10.45pm.
