Now more motivated than ever, the pair pitched to Council to continue the Jazz concerts, and also had a story published in the local paper, The Area News, describing the need for more jazz, and regular performances.

That story stimulated a number of people to contact Mazzon and Pendlebury, and based on this feedback, a formation committee was formed. The committee then worked together to develop the concept, and the format for the performances.

On 7 December 2012, the very first FFL concert was held at Bar One88 Griffith, featuring the band Metro, and viewed by a sold out audience.

There's no looking back now!
