Featuring some of Australia’s most highly respected and international jazz exports. 
* Grover: 5:45pm – 6:30pm, Saturday 22 January 2011
Led by Manly-based Saxophonist, Scott Baulderstone, Grover will have audiences dancing in the street.
* Amali Ward: 6:30pm – 7:15pm, Saturday 22 January 2011
Sydney based pop/soul singer and ‘Australian Idol’ contestant Amali Ward is also widely seen as the face of the ‘Rexona Girl’ campaigns.
* Lionel Robinson: 5pm – 5:45pm, Sunday 23 January
Lionel’s musical career began as the piano player in Elton John’s Covent Garden Restaurant. A very popular performer throughout Australia and overseas, he is based on the Northern Beaches where he is a crowd favourite at the Manly Jazz Festival.
* Jeff Duff: 7pm – 7:45pm, Sunday 23 January
The great Jeff Duff shaped his musical career in England in the ‘70s across a range of genres including angstless punk to the emerging New Wave, tongue-in-cheek reggae to glam rock and even straight-ahead though well bent 50s rock ‘n’ roll. Ever since his hit version of ‘Walk on the Wildside’, Jeff Duff has been a constant on the Australian music scene.

There will also be:
* Face painting from 3pm – 8pm on both Saturday and Sunday
* Additional performances by a variety of artists, including Flamenco Australia Dancers and roving bands, from midday to 2pm Monday, 24 January and Tuesday, 25 January, on The Corso (John Speight Stage), Manly.
