Jazz lovers put on their dancing shoes Thursday night at the opening of the inaugural Mossel Bay Jazz festival in the Garden Route town.

The event, which runs until Sunday, is set against a breath taking view of the Indian Ocean at Santos Beach.

The musical line-up includes Judith Sephuma, Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels and many more.

The wind started to play up, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of revellers.

One supporter says,  “It’s amazing here… the vibe is so nice. I’m having an absolutely amazing time. I love jazz and just to have an event like this take place on the Garden route on a beautiful balmy Mossel Bay evening, it’s really a beautiful event.”
