Dear Friends of Paradise Jazz Festival
We would like to express our deep appreciation to ALL collaborators for helping us organize and perform such a successful and respectful festival. Especially this year with the circumstances laying in this order, “you” have been so helpful!
One of the biggest thanks goes to Val`s Place for making us feel welcome and for doing their best to help us solve all matters. They have a lovely team, a great venue, delicious family food, and a great heart. We feel happy for performing there, and we wish that we will be back there again!
Many very big thank you to our sponsors Medochemie, Compass Developers, Ahead Music, Filokypros, Island-Oil Holdings, Eventpro, Lovenlight, Tsiakkas Winery, Fly Again Irish Pub & Grill, Hot Soap Studios, Patriotic Agents – Distributors and our supporters Artopiisis Bakery, Psaropoulos Fish Tavern, and the Orange Events.
A great-great thank you to our super talented Cyprus Jazz Musicians, who offered us high-standard music and unforgettable moments – Jazzologia Cyprus Big Band, Electrified Riffs, Macumba, Workin` Trio, The Visitors and the participators at the Jam Session were excellent! They kept the magic of these two beautiful full moon nights rolling. Thank you and bravo also to the sound man Evelthon for his first-rate work. No matter if people were right in front of the stage or far away at the camping site; you could feel the magic of music.
A great thank you goes to our graphic designer Navid Gholipour for his marvelous job. In the last five years, he has managed to add his lovely energy to our campaign in design and colors. The 21st was exceptionally beautiful!
Next on the line of big thank, goes to the Paradise Team for adding extra hands to the festival’s organization, something that makes us feel stronger for the future like never before. An extra foundation. Special thanks to Claudio Saghbini for his help on the promotion, and to Louisa who was at the office and the reservations.
Many of our volunteers were excellent, and we thank them for their wiliness to help, and some were lazy and drank the bar. That`s life … we still thank them … we hope they enjoyed the show! And were other volunteers, who were many again, and maybe did not do any physical work, but dramatically helped by offering a little something for them, but so important and valuable for us. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
And the last thank you is the biggest of all we had mentioned before, and it goes to our people, to our followers! Literally, without you, we cannot exist. An unreplaceable part! Everything is depending on this relation! It is because of your generous feedback, that we are always trying to be better and better. In return for your response comes the good news for you! We have started planning the third day of the Paradise Jazz Festival, (Thursday or Sunday) dedicated to modern dance!
