Now Jazz at the Bowl continues in memory of David May, co-ordinated by Adele & Neil Taylor. The Taylors are very excited to be connecting with the Frankston Music Festival to share their love of live jazz with the greater Frankston music community, by bringing one of Australia’s most renowned jazz singers – Michelle Nicolle – to Jazz at the Bowl.

For the Frankston Music Festival, Michelle will be joined by the Joe Ruberto Quartet – Joe Ruberto (Piano), Paul Van Ross (Reeds), Dean Addison (Double Bass) and Ronny Ferella (Drums) – a veritable collection of master musicians in their own rights.
