The seventh annual Jazz by the Bay provides the variety for fans to “find the groove that suits you”, with 45 individual performances across Dunsborough, Busselton and Margaret River.

The full program has been released, with a raft of jazz talent from Perth, interstate and overseas, as well as local acts performing over the June long weekend.

Jazz by the Bay spokeswoman Janine Pittaway said jazz-lovers needed to get their dancing shoes on for fun times.

“For those who love tasty food with their jazz, check out Ali Bodycoat’s Soiree at Clairault Streicker, Cathrine Summers Trio performing a Night in Paris at Studio Bistro and Gallery, Jessie Gordon Swing and Seafood at Cape Lodge, and the Holli Scott Trio at Rustico’s Euro Jazz Club,” she said.

Must-see acts include Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys at Caves Road Collective, and Amy, Amy, Amy — The Amy Winehouse Experience at Settlers Tavern.

Jazz will blend with art at Studio Bistro when Nerissa Campbell and the Breakout Lights perform, while renowned artist Peter Kendall paints what he feels from the live music. Patrons will find a mix of high-energy and acoustic talent all weekend at Caves House Hotel, Rustico at Hayshed Hill, Settlers Tavern and Dunsborough Tavern.
