Sponsor of the Week: Coast 101.1FMOctober 26, 2010
The 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival would not have been possible without the support of our corporate and media sponsors. To show our appreciation for their support, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues (WJB) will be showcasing a different sponsor each week. This week’s sponsor of the week is Coast 101.1 FM.
Coast 101.1 is proud to feature the only Jazz & Blues shows on commercial radio in St. John’s. The Friday Night Blues Block 8pm-10pm is a combination of Atlantic Canadian Blues with The Blues Own and international blues with House of Blues. Sundays, The Coast features our own Cool Jazz On The Coast hosted by local musician Bill Sharpe from Billy & The Bruisers. Cool Jazz On The Coast gives St. John`s an accordion free alternative to wake up a Sunday morning. Coast 101.1 is proud to be a part of the Jazz & Blues community in St. John`s.
Coast 101.1 had a solid presence during the 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival. From Wednesday to Sunday, Coast 101.1 hosted the Happy Hour stage outside on the deck at the Martini Bar. Audience members enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and were captivated by performance by the Kelly Ann Evans Band, the Brad Jefford Trio Plus, the Al Robman Quintet, and more. As a long-time media sponsor, Coast 101.1 is a mainstay of the promotion and implementation of Festival events.
WJB would like to acknowledge and express gratitude for the contributions of Coast 101.1 FM, the Sponsor of the Week!
