Alan Bramley's Mardi Gras band
From Alan Bramley - jazz organiser at the Cross Keys in York
It’s nine months since we had to close down the jazz sessions at the Cross Keys just as were about to celebrate three years of providing weekday jazz that so many people enjoyed; we regularly had near full houses. Will we ever get back? Will the audience come back? In the meantime the tenancy of the pub has been put up for sale seemingly without any takers since it is now being offered as a managed pub. Change of landlord is always a worrying time for jazz venues but hopefully we might get back into action in 2021.
Best wishes for Xmas and the New Year
