Look Out For Saskwatch

Following their performance at this year’s Mordialloc Food, Wine & Music Festival, indie-soul band Saskwatch have decided to venture further south, set to appear at this year’s Winter Jazz Festival.

On a pit stop in between gigs on their national tour, the Melbourne 9-piece earned their reputation as one of the city’s most electrifying live acts with ecstatic horns, one of the tightest rhythm sections in town and soaring vocals. Their debut album Leave It All Behind and the lead single Your Love gained national airplay and saw them appear on international stages, as well as at premier festivals back home. Now, in conjunction with their latest album, Nose Dive, out now through Northside Records/Remote Control, Saskwatch have hit the road again after time off busily recording and will bring their new tunes, including the recent hits Hands and Born To Break Your Heart to Mornington.

Supporting Saskwatch will be one of last year’s festival’s great successes; Flap! The quirky Melbourne Jazz outfit received an entirely unexpected Australian Jazz Bell Award, released a new single and toured the country with one of Australia’s most successful exports last year, and have showed no signs of slowing down since. Known stylistically as a mish-mash of genres including: traditional 1920’s jazz, calypso, English folk and Gypsy Brass, festivalgoers will no doubt remember the captivating Beaches show last year. See them alongside Saskwatch in a truly special double-bill this Queens Birthday Weekend.

Full details of the show will be released imminently, so make sure to keep your eye on www.morningtonjazz.com.au for all the announcements and details. While you’re there, grab some tickets to the wide variety of other live entertainment and activities on offer across the weekend. It’s sure to be a festival bigger and better than last year, which off the back of a cracker first year will be no mean feat.
