Jazz club draws record crowds instead of Malvern
A Worcestershire jazz club famous after drawing its biggest crowd to its new venue.
Malvern Jazz, Blues & Swing, in their new home at the Cube in Albert Road North, had their biggest night yet with the Malvern Big Band and Midlands singer Garry Rutter.
Treasurer Neil Thwaites said, “It was great to enjoy a good local big band, and a large grateful audience made for a night to remember throughout.
“After our first monthly session in October, the club got stronger and stronger with record attendance.
“We currently have confirmed bookings through August 2022, featuring some of the best bands and musicians the jazz world has to offer. ”
The club is now preparing for the visit of Janice Williamson accompanied by the group Gary Bell. Perfecting her art in various groups, Janice became a founding member of the acapella group ‘Black Voices’.
As a solo gospel and jazz artist, she has performed at prestigious venues including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Birmingham, Symphony Hall and Town Hall, at the Upton Jazz Festival as well as in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and the United States.
Janice is in high demand as she continues to perform in jazz band The Outsiders and Rush’s UK tour – A Joyous Jamaican Journey in UK theaters.
For this Sunday January 2nd session, doors open at 7:00 p.m., the band will play from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (including intermission) and admission is £ 10 in cash at the door.
