By GEORGE GARDNER Go to waihekemarket place.co.nz and click on Latest Edition to hear Five Mile Town's new single, Saturated INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL Fur Patrol frontwoman Julia Deans is heading for Waiheke shores as a solo artist to play at the Waiheke Island International Jazz Festival. Fans can catch her at the Good Friday Groove on April 6 at Rangihoua Estate which has a top line-up of performers from several music genres. Julia has been known since the late 90s as a member of the band that broke out from the Wellington underground into the forefront of the New Zealand rock scene. Now she has released her debut solo album Modern Fables to rave reviews. The singer-songwriter will be performing a 45-minute set in the middle of the Friday afternoon event which runs from noon until 5pm. Crowd-pleaser Paul Ubana Jones will open the Good Friday Groove, followed by Eddie Rayner and Brian Baker. Eddie is best known as Split Enz keyboardist, but has toured with Crowded House as well as working on Split Enz arrangements for ENZSO, a collaboration with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Brian had a band called The Makers in Melbourne in the 90s, after Split Enz broke up and the pair has been looking for opportunities to work together. Jazz festival director John Quigley says: The festival is pro- viding that opportunity. Brian has flown over from Melbourne for a week in pre-production before head- ing to Waiheke.'' Young jazz band Five Mile Town will take the Groove stage next. They performed briefly at the Wai- heke Olive Festival at Rangihoua Estate and blew people away with their sound'', John Quigley says. He could be biased, with a certain 18-year-old Adam Quigley on banjo and electric guitar, but other festi- val goers at the time loved them too. John has watched this band from the sidelines for some time and pro- vided encouragement and support when asked. These guys are the real deal. They have a single focus -- to play Glastonbury, tour the world and live the dream.'' And they may do just that. They released their first single, Satu- rated, last week and received nearly 8000 hits on youtube in two days. Tickets to the Good Friday Groove are $39 and available at the Waiheke i-Site in Oneroa, phone 372 1234, or at the gate. All jazz festival tickets for daytime jazzabout and the evening concert series are also online at waihekejazzfestival.co.nz. The grand finale concert at The Bay is $25 on the door. Extra treat on Good Friday Pop diva: Annah Mac is set to get the Rangihoua Estate crowd going on Friday afternoon. Pop star Annah Mac will be the final act at the Good Friday Groove. Before she was 19, the Southland girl had already been mentored by many of New Zealand's top producers. She had opened for Kelly Clarkson and The Script before the age of 18. At 17, she had honed her songwriting skills on a US scholarship that took her to Nashville and the South By South West festival in Texas. At 16, she had won the Smokefree Rockquest Female Musician Award, and at 15, she'd won the Play It Strange competition. Her latest single Girl In Stilettos has been one of the biggest songs of the summer, reaching Platinum status with huge radio airplay. Her debut album Little Stranger is out now.
