John Wall hangs up his hat

From John Wall

"Louis Louis Louis are the guests at Leeds Jazz Club April 5th which is my last night as promoter at LJC.

So am looking forward to a real stomping show with lots of old friends showing their faces, it should be a real hoot.

Next week Sarah Sharpe takes over full running of the club so come on down and find out whats afoot.

Last weeks band the Savannah Jazz Band played their cotton socks off, I don't think I have heard them in better form.

So I come to the end of nearly fourteen years in the hot seat at LJC and I do so hope you give it all your support under the new management. I will still be down the Con club come Tuesday nights and I am looking forward to a great new scene.

Keep on JAZZIN" .

John Wall.

John Wall has been associated with the club since the beginning and in sole charge since 2002. As a guitarist and vocalist with his own groups; as the proprietor (now retired) of the well known John Wall Entertainment Agency and as a long time jazz promoter, John has the experience and the contacts to keep the club moving forward. He has been jazz enthusiast from the moment he heard the Original Dixieland Jazz Band belting out Tiger Rag on a 78 rpm which his brother Bill brought back from Burma just after the war (National Service). The highlights of his playing career include three trips to New Orleans with / in the “K C Moaners” in 1994, 1995 and 1997 (K C being Ken Colyer of course).
