|BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS THE COMMITTE OF THE CLUB HAVE DECIDED TO SUSPEND CLUB SESSIONS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. THE WEBSITE WILL BE UPDATED AS THE SITUATION PROGRESSES
This quarter, as usual, we have an eclectic mix of styles with something for everyone, including two bands making a first appearance at the Club
Friday, April 24th:The Auld Reekie Stompers: A 7-piece band, led by Ali Affleck,
playing hot, traditional jazz with some standards and some rarely heard gems. This
will be the first time at the Club for this band (www.aliaffleck.com)
Friday, May 15th: Penman’s Jazzmen: this band needs no introduction. Be prepared
for top class traditional jazz played by a group of guys who have paid their dues over
and over again. Want to hear them? Then ‘Google’ them.
Friday, May 22nd: Vieux Carre Jazzmen: from Newcastle, this ever popular band
making a welcome return to the Club. Look out your dancing shoes or just come
along to listen, whatever floats your boat (www.vieuxcarrejazzmen.com)
Friday, June 5th: Frank Brooker’s Happy Chappies: this will be the band’s first appearance at the Club. Frank Brooker is one of the most respected musos on the jazz scene. The ‘Happy Chappies’ , a five piece outfit, play a mix of genres – New Orleans, traditional, swing – something for everyone. See them on You Tube
Swing Dancers: it is good to see the many swing dancers that appear regularly at the Club. These dancers, mostly young, are very popular and, I’m sure, make many of the older Club members wish they were young again. Not only are the young dancers
most welcome, they are also doing much to keep ‘The Music’ ongoing. Well done!
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
