KWJF 2018 Jazz Band Search
The Kuching Waterfront Jazz Festival (KWJF) is now calling for local jazz bands to audition for a Jazz Band Search on 18 August at the Godown Amphitheater, Kuching Waterfront.
The talent competition aims to see Sarawakian bands performing their Jazz renditions and competing for a chance to perform at this year’s KWJF happening on 28 and 29 September at the Grand Margherita Hotel, Waterfront. In addition to cash prizes and tickets to the festival, the winning band will be performing alongside this year’s star-studded line-up including multi-award winning Sarawakian songstress Dayang Nur Faizah, Blues Gang (Malaysia), Jolynn Chin (Malaysia) Aisyah Aziz (Singapore), Tompi (Indonesia), Carmen D’Souza (Portugal), Tuku Kame (Malaysia), The Natalie Gillispie Band (Australia) and many more.
The first KWJF last year saw an all-star line-up of 17 acclaimed musicians and bands such as Sheila Majid (Malaysia), Kunto Aji (Indonesia), Abdul and the Coffee Theory (Indonesia), Baihana (Philippines), Ernie Watts (USA), Jeremy Monteiro (Singapore) and many more. A record of more than 4000 festival goers enjoyed themselves at KWJF 2017, as it is a family-oriented event suitable for all ages with not only the music concerts to enjoy but also a lively bazaar with food, arts, handicrafts and other merchandise on sale.
