(Not) homeless in Harrogate
The Harrogate Jazz and Blues club had to leave their previous venue at Balcony, Harrogate Cricket Ground in the autumn but are no longer homeless. They have at last found a new venue, the intimate surroundings of the Harrogate Brasserie. Their first gig features trombonist Eugene Farrar and ageless saxman Frank Brooker - on Tuesday 4th March.
The Harrogate Brasserie also have regular live jazz on Mondays and Tuesdays 5.30pm - 9.30pm, with pianist David Bailey, Wednesday & Thursday 6.45pm - 9.45pm with vocalist Nicki Allan, Friday 7.45pm - 11pm & Sunday 7pm - 10pm.
The brasserie also welcome vocalist Mike Westerman and his band in their new regular slot on the 1st Friday of every month. Mike has worked all over the UK in Jazz venues, Ronnie Scott's to name one of the famous ones. He has also worked in both radio and television over in Ireland for many a year. Joining Mike are one of York's top pianists Andy Chollerton, and the very talented Keith Jevons on Bass, and together they will be entertaining diners with music from the American Songbook.
