Greetings of the Season to all Dove Jazz Club followers and supporters. Our 2019 programme brought so many highlights it’s difficult to single out any one concert, but the performances of Frog & Henry and also the 3 Bears with Alex & Jamie will stand in the memory for a long time. Both are back this year to enthral us once again. Also returning after absences of several years are long term Festival favourites New Orleans Heat and the Eagle Jazz Band.
Dove Jazz Club has always encouraged new young talent, and this year is no different. We are pleased to bring the Tenement Jazz Band from Edinburgh, and the Jake Leg Jug band from the Potteries, for their Dove Podium debuts. Both bands feature younger musicians playing in the style of early New Orleans ensembles. The Awesome Six concert this year will feature Peter Rudeforth in the trumpet chair, replacing Enrico, who is sadly disappointed that we were unable to find a mutually convenient date in his busy schedule.
Many Dove favourites are returning to make up the remainder of our 2020 schedule, and just to whet your appetites for January 2021, we are working hard behind the scenes to bring a 10/11-piece orchestra from New Orleans to the Dove Podium. Look out for details in due course.
If you are not already on our regular postal and e-mailing list to receive reminders of concerts, and regular ‘Dove Bugle’ newsletters, just let Roger have your details, or e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org Our well established Facebook page and revamped website also give details of past & forthcoming events and other interesting snippets from the Jazz World, and importantly, Saturday afternoon weather updates during the Winter months .
