Thousands share fun ... and all that jazz

TOE tapping and finger clicking fun was had at the annual Big River Jazz Festival on the weekend.

More than 5000 people got into the groove during the three-day celebrations held at the Ski Gardens, Rockhampton's Riverbank and the Heritage Village.

Rockhampton Tourist and Business Information events co-ordinator Anthea Curtis said the festival was a huge success.

"There was a wonderful crowd over the three days and we have even received response from the crowd describing this year's music as totally different to last year,'' she said.

"Many of the nine restaurants were booked out on the Friday night and there was a solid crowd at the Heritage Village markets yesterday.''

Despite the number of major events held throughout Central Queensland on the weekend, Ms Curtis said the music enthusiasm was there.

Saturday night saw the David Bentley Band (featuring Jim Kelly and Greg Lyons), eXpose and Fingerprint perform alongside Rockhampton jazz bands filling the night with music.
