HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our Members and Friends.

Our January and February programme is now available and  March will follow soon!

We start off on Friday 5th January with Ian Boyter and The Joys of Swing, who will feature ace trumpet man Mike Daly – always a firm favourite at the Club and you can be sure of a selection to keep the dancers on their toes.

Friday 26th January sees a new band at the Club – Graham Blamire has formed a band of fine Scottish musicians from both sides of the country – East West Incorporated – so don’t miss out on this chance to hear them.  Lennie Herd (trumpet); Tom Taylor (clarinet); George Howden (trombone, vocals); Jack Finlay (piano) and Bobby Stewart (drums) join Graham on double bass for a night of great music.



Our local bands fill out the quarterly programme as usual.  They keep the club alive with their constant support and you will find details of when you can see Jim Petrie’s Diplomats of Jazz, Graham Blamire’s Maid of the Forth Stompers +2, Bill Salmond’s Hot Four, Violet Milne’s Spirits of Rhythm, Ian Boyter’s Joys of Swing, Jerry Forde’s New Phoenix Jazz Band – and  last but not least, Fred Murray’s Clubhouse Six – on our What’s On page.

VISITORS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME –  You don’t need to book or buy tickets in advance – just come along with a smile on your face and join us.  If you’re feeling energetic, you can trip the light fantastic and dance the night away.  If you’re feeling down and blue, just listen to the music and brighten up your spirits.  We have a licensed bar (at Club prices) if you need some additional refreshment!  Please spread the word and keep traditional jazz live in Edinburgh.
