Beaufort Jazz

Great music – and you are invited!

Gig update – Petrus, John Wheatcroft and introducing the Swan “Live Lounge”

A brief post to keep you updated with gigs where Beaufort Jazz regulars are playing.

Paul Draper is organising the new Live  Lounge at the The Swan Inn in Aughton on the last Friday of every month. It is a new evening, part organised – part open mic to showcase local musicians. Last week was only the second evening and featured Trez Fez with Tom Sykes guesting on violin. It’s a very pleasant location in the lounge adjacent to the main restaurant, with what has to be said are surprisingly good acoustics. Staring at 8pm it’s definitely one to put into your diary.

Tom Sykes will also be appearing with Les Bolger and Danny Mannix at Dobbies Garden World at 5pm on Thursday 28th April. There is a small entrance fee and high tea will be included. The same musicians will also be appearing with John McCormick as Petrus at the Southport Jazz Festival. They are scheduled to appear on Friday 27th May at 2.30 pm in the Town Hall Gardens. This is always a very popular location and Petrus played here last year for same festival.

Finally we also hear that John Wheatcroft is performing at Parr Street on the 12th of April with the band Metamorphic. Parr Street is one of the iconic music clubs in the North West and John is one of the finest guitarists in the region – so it is likely to be a special occasion.

The next Beaufort Jazz night is on Monday 4th April and the featured musicians will be La Paire Llamedos. Unique is an overused word nowadays, however this group is just that and completely different from anything you will have heard. A full announcement will appear in the few days.

Enjoy
