Here we are, into the second quarter of the year already. As usual, the programme is an eclectic mix of styles.
Vieux Carre Jazzmen (April 12).
This popular band, from Newcastle, will be visiting the Club once again, on April 12. accompanied by a travelling support. The Vieux Carre’s playlist will include a broad mix of tunes ranging from jazz standards through rags, blues, spirituals and stomps. An excellent and entertaining band.
During the three months covered by this programme, the Club will be, mainly, featuring the local bands. Too often we take them for granted, without pausing to think how lucky we are to have these bands appearing on a regular basis. Please come along and support them. They deserve it.
This quarter also sees the start of the jazz festival season with Keswick in May and Kirkcudbright in June. If you do not attend these festivals you can always experience excellent music at the Club every Friday evening.
The Edinburgh Jazz ‘n’ Jive Club is the only club in Edinburgh where you will hear live, traditional jazz on a regular basis. So, come along and help to keep it that way.
If you have never been to the Club or haven’t visited for a while, why not come along one Friday evening and bring your friends, relations, work colleagues and anyone else you can think of. A great place for a social get together.
