City abuzz for show

Atasa Moceituba
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

WHILE the four-day live 2014 International Jazz & Blues Festival is anticipated to bring people together, it will also be a great opportunity for local musicians to meet international artists.

Matrix Holdings Ltd managing director and event organiser Liam Hindle made the comments at a press briefing yesterday in the buildup to the music show scheduled to begin in Suva tomorrow.

He said they had invested a lot of money in organising the show.

Money raised will be used to pay for the international musicians while a portion will be given for the benefit of children living with disabilities.

"We thought Suva is the hub of music in the South Pacific and it would be great to have something like this live show going on at the capital side of the country," Mr Hindle said.

He said a low admission fee would be charged to those who wanted to watch the live show to help them in paying the musicians.

"For the people's sake, we are charging them $15 entry fee."

Operations director Jodi Bacchiochi Chang said the event would be worthwhile and exciting because of the preparations and efforts put together by the event organisers.

"This is not the last time we would be organising such an event. We will try and develop it further and see after this one goes."

The show would be held in different places at a specific time but the three main stage shows are the Royal Suva Yacht Club, Holiday Inn and the O'Reilly's bar in the Capital City.
