Are you interested in live Jazz performance?
Geoff's aim is:
- to arrange (say) 6 visits bi-monthly to contemporary jazz venues in the North West (say no more than 1 hour’s journey) covering a broad spectrum of the music
- to negotiate a deal with the promoter for group admission
- to facilitate appropriate transport
- to arrange for the group to meet the musicians if they wish
- to suggest catering arrangements if necessary
Geoff has a regular table at the monthly meeting in Christ Church where you can buy tickets for any of the Jazz events.

|Dates for your Diary|
|Mon Apr 6th||BIJOU CINEMA. Post Office Avenue, Southport.|
High Society film viewing followed by supper and live jazz. Not to be missed!
Click the link for details in the High Society flyer.
The leader heard today that the Bijou will be closing for at least 2 months before the end of March, a very wise and probably inevitable move in view of the latest turn of events with the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jazz Group event planned for April 6th is therefore postponed until further notice. The leader will be back in touch just as soon as possible to agree a mutually convenient date to re schedule the film/meal/live jazz event at the Bijou when, all being well, this is terrible business is over.
|Thu May 7th||DAY OUT FOR JAZZERS AND FOODIES|
A return trip to Altrincham Market for lunch and supper with jazz at the Cinnamon Club in the evening. Click the link above for details.
|Mon Jun 1st||BOULEVARD WEST|
Vernon Fuller's "Twin Frets". Tickets £15. Click the link to view details in the Jazz flyer June-Aug 2020.
Delighted to welcome back Vernon and fellow guitarist Willy Fluss for an evening of blues, soul, jazz and maybe even a touch of reggae. With smooth vocals and great guitar work.
|Mon Jul 6th||BOULEVARD WEST|
Mike Hall & Andy Hulme. Tickets £15. Click the link to view details in the Jazz flyer June-Aug 2020.
It's just a year since Mike Hall retired after a 20-year stint as Director of the Royal Northern College of Music's Big Band. Mike is now a tutor in Jazz Saxophone and Improvisation at the RNCM as well as leading several bands. He recently teamed up with mega-talented guitarist Andy Hulme to reprise the guitar/tenor duet sounds of Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd and Lester Young/Joe Pass. The result is simply spellbinding.
|Mon Aug 3rd||BOULEVARD WEST|
Jamie Brownfield & Liam Byrne with Anthony Ormesher. Tickets £15. Click the link to view details in the Jazz flyer June-Aug 2020.
Yet another superb guitarist Tony Ormesher to complete the trio with trumpeter Jamie Brownfield and Liam Byrne on tenor and soprano saxes. All three are now nationally recognised top performers on the jazz scene. Expect swing, drive, precision and great soloing in the Chicago style.
|Thu Aug 20th||SUMMER PARTY IN THE PARK|
With Dominic Halpin and the Honey Bees (from the Cinnamon Club in Altrincham) there will be dancing aplenty to be sure. Not to be missed!
