Jazz again at Romantic Russell

Press Release


Jazz again at Romantic Russell
The Duke speaks up for jazz-lovers

Dell Gifford’s love for Jazz and her commitment for The Duke as a venue to the BOI Jazz & Blues Festival over the past seven years is so strong that she had to ensure this major event kept its momentum in 2000.
“Due to circumstances beyond our control the Bay of Islands Jazz & Blues Festival has been cancelled this year,” she said. However, the Duke of Marlborough Hotel is hosting its own Jazz Weekend to soothe the winter blues away.”
Already they have attracted internationally-acclaimed bands Kokomo Blues, Alibis, Delta Swing and Stepping Out. Top acts Soul Servants, Edwina Thorn, Mike Nesbit, Soul Sax, the BOI College Band and the Windjammers are also very keen to team up with the Duke to make it a memorable weekend.”
The festival will kick off on Friday 11 August in the evening, and wind down in the afternoon of Sunday 13 August.
