Miri International Jazz Festival 2008 (9-10 May)

Several counters will be open in Miri in the next few days and during weekends to cater for the anticipated rush for the Miri International Jazz Festival tickets.

A counter will be open at the Coffee Bean Shell Lutong on April 22 and 24 and at Piasau Boat Club on April 25 while another counter will be open at Boulevard Hypermarket on May 1. The counters will be open from 9.30am onward.

All these counters are open for the convenience of festival goers who wish to buy their ticket at an outlet nearest to them.

Similar counters were opened last weekend at Piasau Boat Club and at the Imperial Mall. Ticket sales at both outlets were very encouraging.

Currently, the tickets are available at Visitors Information Centre in Miri, Café Miri and Pak Cik Wan Café in Lutong. Apart from counter sales, the tickets are also available online at www.TicketCharge.com.my.

The online sales are meant for those outside Miri especially from overseas, Peninsula Malaysia, Singapore and Sabah while the counter sales are for locals as well as visitors from Brunei Darussalam.

Tickets are priced at RM60 each for a night pass to the concert which will be held at the Pavilion at Parkcity Everly Hotel in Miri. Children between three and 12 years old are charged half rate each.

A total of nine groups will be entertaining the guests at the festival which is held for the third consecutive year. They are Amar Sundy from Algeria, Borneo Jazz Quartet (Sarawak), Charmaine Clamor (Philippines), Diamond Dave and the Doodaddies (Australia), T'Inventielke (Holland), Mood Indigo (UK), Oma Sound (Japan), Rumba Calzada (Canada) and Habana Sax (Cuba).

Habana Sax, the crowd's favourite at last year's festival, was voted to make a come-back show while T'Inventielke will be providing a difference to this year's festival programme. The 16-member T'Inventielke is a street jazz band and it will be performing around the festival ground in between act for the bands in the Pavilion. Their performances on the festival ground will give true meaning to the tag-line of enjoying jazz music under the star.

Apart from music, the festival will also be liven-up with good food and company. There will also be wide selection of food and drinks served at the stalls set up around the festival ground.
