Beaufort Jazz

Great music – and you are invited!

Jazzamatazz to feature Monday 7th November

For November we have a featured performance from an exciting Manchester based piano and vocal duo well-known for their imaginative re-workings of Jazz standards and classic film songs of yesteryear.

We are very pleased to welcome Wheesh Cunningham on vocals and Johnny Youngblood on piano who are –  Jazzamatazz.

Beaufort regulars will probably remember that the duo entertained us a good few months ago when they stepped up to give us a brief set of good music interspersed with gentle humour. Expect more of the same next Monday when the Ellerbrook Suite will hear standards penned by such greats as Rogers and Hart, Gershwin and Cole Porter.

Coming from diverse musical backgrounds which includes classical, spoken word and musical theatre, the duo are able to put their unique style and interpretation on any song. Not easy to define and difficult to pigeon-hole, Jazzamatazz will almost certainly give us another unique Beaufort Jazz evening.

Having performed as far away as the Caribbean these musicians are regularly seen supporting live music events throughout the North West. We are delighted that they have eventually found their way back to one of our Beaufort Jazz evenings and look forward to giving them a very warm welcome.

As usual the evening starts promptly at 8pm. Following the featured performance the usual Gypsy Jazz jam will start in the Ellerbrook Suite. There will also be another room (probably the Orangery) available for jamming so there is no excuse not to bring your guitar and join in.

As always new musicians and audience are most welcome.

Look forward to seeing you on Monday!
