Every year at times like this, bands from across the nations gather here in Miri for one purpose. The Miri International Jazz festival, proudly organized by the Sarawak tourism board and not to forget the main sponsor Astro and of course one of the sponsors is Heineken which my favorite beer and screeching loud whenever Jezza mentioned their name. I was accompanied by two of my friends who came all the from cat city, Diana and Irene came just for the event. After been harassed by the clowns, we meet up Arthur, Kroll and Nikki.

The first performance of the night is double take from Sabah, Malaysia. The singer Mia, her voice has been describe "sultry" they made no mistake when that statement was made. She has a exceptional vocal talent and powerful. While her partner, Roger has been describe as the wizard on the guitar. It is no wonder he is the wizard after seeing him strum the guitar with the speed and accuracy, he is able to make the guitar sounded two guitar was playing at the same time. They duo played some mainstream music, but with jazz tunes that made it worthy of listening.

The second performance is a band who came all the way from the land who eats fish and chips, who loves beers, and saying "blimey". The bombay Baja Brass band, from London. Who taught the audience to a simple bollywood dance by screwing the light bulb and patting something with the other hand. I had the thoughts that this was going to be the typical marching band kind of music, I was wrong. Their music was infused with Indian melodies and tunes, the band have made the audience doing the light bulb dance.
