Welcome to Edinburgh Jazz & Jive Club

The Edinburgh Jazz ‘n’ Jive Club was founded in September 2000 as a means of providing local bands with somewhere to play on a regular basis. The original idea was mooted by Violet Milne (leader of the Spirits of Rhythm)and Norrie Thomson.

The aims of the Club are to promote the enjoyment of live traditional jazz in all its forms whilst at the same time providing a platform for local bands to play on a regular basis. Generally, the Club programme features two local bands every Friday with a visiting band once per month, on average.

The Club is legally constituted as a non-profit making body and is run a by a committee of three office bearers and four committee members.
