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 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!
