Wilbur Wilde’s Winter Weekend

Despite his rock background, Wilbur is first and foremost a jazz player. A renowned Australian saxophonist and vocalist, Wilbur Wilde rose to fame with the bands Ol’55 and Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, but has a vast array of other names he’s been associatated with and contributed music to, including Skyhooks, Elvis Costello, Renee Geyer, Glenn Shorrock, Dragon, James Reyne, Dire Straits and more. Many would know Wilde better from pursuits other than mainstream music, with his hugely popular Hey Hey Its Saturday persona exposing him to many fans young and old, as well as appearances in The New Rocky Horror Show, on many major brand advertisements, breakfast radio with 3UZ and Gold104 and television appearances on Countdown, The Flying Doctors, Blankety Blanks, Getaway, Postcards and more.

With this range of roles behind him, Wilde has concentrated more recently on his long-time love, jazz, and following his appearances at last year’s inaugural Mornington Winter Jazz Festival, he’s set to return to The Bay Hotel on Sunday June 8 from 4pm and also will appear as part of the Mornington Racing Club’s Queen’s Birthday Picnic Races on Monday June 9. Running from 11am until 6pm, general admission tickets will be available at the gate (Adults $12, Concession $8 and under 15yrs free).

See Wilde at The Bay (62 Main St, Mornington) on Sunday June 8, and again at the Mornington Racecourse (cnr Racecourse Rd & Morn-Tyabb Rd, Mornington) on Monday June 9.
