We are a group of people who enjoy and want to promote live traditional jazz band and jazz Orchestra (Big Band/Swing)music locally.
These Jazz events are open to the public, so come along and bring your friends. We hope to expand our group to include other U3As in the greater Belfast area. The more the merrier (venues are often on licensed premises) and some encourage Dancing.
Below we detail regular Jazz events, and we plan to e-mail interested members with details of one off events and any changes to regular events. We would be pleased to hear of any events in your area that we might not be aware of.
So please contact us using the link system on this web site or use our contact details from the monthly newsletter, or use sign up sheet at monthly meeting. We will then put you on the e-mail list.
PLEASE GIVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND A TELEPHONE NUMBER.
Convenors: Mark Hewitt and Caroline Brown.
