Huddersfield Jazz have found a second venue - the Keys Restaurant in Bryam Street - and it is proving popular with jazz fans - gigs are selling out fast. Roger Sawyer from Huddersfield Jazz writes
"It doesn't seem that long since we held our last gig with the excellent Alligator Gumbo at the Keys Restaurant, and those of you who were there will remember what a great evening that was. Well, it's nearly time for the start of our Spring season which, I hope you'll agree, promises to be an excellent one
You'll also notice that we're continuing to split our venues between the Lawrence Batley Theatre and the Keys Restaurant. As well as being a more economical venue, the Keys Restaurant provides a more informal atmosphere - and there's the added attraction of pie and peas!
First, on 29 March, we're very pleased to be able to bring to the LBT the wonderful American singer Marlene VerPlanck, who's currently on tour in the UK. Then, on 12 April, at the Keys Restaurant, we have the Weave. On 3 May, we're back at the LBT for Dennis Rollins' Velocity Trio Finally, on 14 June, it's back to the Keys for Djangologie."
