John has been appointed Jazz Conductor for the festival.

Dave Spicer, born in Adelaide, began playing at the tender age of five.

It proved hard to find a teacher in Adelaide willing to teach such a young student. The last teacher in the telephone book was Walter Lund, who was the director of Adelaide’s Channel Nine Orchestra. For the next eleven years Walter shared and blessed Dave with his love of Jazz. Dave moved to Brisbane and continued his musical studies at the Conservatorium.  Gershwin, Winifred Atwell, Peter Allen, Jazz Standards, songs from the American Songbook and a tribute to two of jazz greats –Louis Armstrong and Earl ‘Fatha’ Hines, will be played by Dave on a Concert Grand Piano, added to this talent Dave has a Degree in Vocals.

Marry these two fantastic artists and you have a wonderful afternoon of musical entertainment.
