It's time to get your toe-tapping shoes on, with the Phillip Island Jazz Festival jazzing it up at the lovely Phillip Island Eco Resort from this Friday the 19th to Sunday the 21st of November.

This year's theme is 'red hot jazz', with the festival's feature bands renowned for playing this energetic style.

Festivities kick off on Friday night with a formal dinner dance to the sounds of Michael McQuaid and his Red Hot Rhythmakers, supported by renowned jazz pianist Bruce Gourlay.

A jumping, jam-packed weekend program also includes a Saturday night jam session, which sounds like a bunch of fun, and a Sunday morning service at 10am at the Baptist Church in Cowes, featuring jazz pianist Andy Vance and trumpeter Greg Ambroisine.

If you've not been to a Sunday morning service at a music festival, trust me in saying you're in for a real treat. They make for a highly uplifting experience.

The resort itself, at which I've had the pleasure of staying before, is environmentally sustainable, peaceful and pretty as a picture. It makes a great venue for a great event - and has a restaurant featuring wood-fired pizzas to boot!
