Christmas and new Year Jazz at the Spa

Harlem Hot Stompers 17 Dec

Les and the team from Boston Spa write..

Please find attached the Christmas and New Year programme. Doesn’t time pass quickly when you are having fun! Compliments of the Season from  us all at Jazz in the Spa!

17th Dec– Christmas Party Night with the Harlem Hot Stompers – the annual shindig which has proved to be one of the special gigs of the year. The customary mix of rip roaring traditional jazz from the Stompers plus delectable savouries and sweet treats provided by yourselves and shared around plus the special Christmas raffle. A really great start to the Festive Season!
24th and 31st – No Jazz    

7th January – Savannah Jazz Band – the traditional start to the New Year with Yorkshire’s finest in sparkling form and raring to go after the holiday break. Always a lively session with band and audience determined to sweep away the “post-festive blues.” Traditional jazz par excellence with a smattering of R & B for good measure.

14th January Richard Exall’s Shooting Stars – new to Boston Spa is this professional six piece group from London led by Richard who has appeared previously with his partner, Amy Roberts – both former members of the Chris Barber Band. On this occasion, the music is from a different era from the Roberts/Exall Quintet being vintage jazz, jump jive and swing. Sounds like a really lively session. £10

21st – Alligator Gumbo  recommended to us is this spirited and versatile eight piece group based in Leeds which specialises in “jazz from the hey-day of the New Orleans swing era in the 1920s” when jazz music featured such instruments as the violin and accordion as well as clarinet and those familiar to us. Young musicians with a zest for life. www.alligator-gumbo.co.uk

28th - Kid Boyd Jazz Band A more than welcome return for one of our longest serving groups following a period of absence from the music scene. Always a favourite of the Boston Spa audience, Martin’s back with his stalwarts – Frank Brooker on reeds, James Lancaster on trumpet and our favourite drumming man, Rod McNamara. Looking forward to a cracking evening.

Jazz in the Spa – Village Hall, High Street Boston Spa, Leeds, LS23 6AA. Weekly Live Saturday Traditional/Mainstream Jazz. 8.00.pm

Situated just off the new section of the A1(M) at Junction 45 signed Wetherby and Otley.
