Jazz Club Manchester

Words from Jazz Club....

Jazz Club is proud to drag itself out of Leeds and across the Pennines for our inaugural Manchester outing.

Hopefully, if we don't totally disgrace ourselves, this will be the first of many jazz journeys to this fine city.

Running for just over a year in Leeds, Jazz Club has become the spot to enjoy the finest jazz selectors Yorkshire has to over.

A monthly jolt of jazz from the past, future and beyond, washed down with plenty of booze, has been medically proven to turn that frown upside down.

JC residents, Barry's Here and Mark Hepworth, will be joined by guests to bring some jazz fun to your Sunday.

(if they let us back we might try and sneak a band in next time)

Peace
JC
