All the Jazz Club Gigs

Ribble Valley Gin & Tonic fundraiser

Gin, Whisky & Jazz Festival Fundraiser

Saturday 30 March 2019   From 7:00pm to 11:00pm
Venue: Clitheroe Rugby Club, Littlemoor Rd, Clitheroe BB7 1EW Tel: 01200 422261 | Web: www.clitheroerugby.com | Tickets: £20 with tasting / £15 non-taster | Book Now: from the Facebook website

Help us raise funds to support the festival's free community events.


Unfortunately some of our major funders aren't able to be so generous this year. For instance, with worries over recruitment, Uclan have had to cut back. Sad, so instead we're going to have a great night with a gin and whisky tasting and uplifting party music provided by the Blufunk Syndicate. There's going to be lots of fun and an amazing raffle with really, really great prizes!

What a great way to celebrate our first full Brexit day or drown your sorrows and, at last, forget about all the mayhem we've been through!

Tickets are £20 and you'll see this going towards hiring sound systems, putting up stages and subsidising events and workshops for children and our community.

And if you feel you would like to do more... then please come and talk to us as in our 10th year we really do need your help.

Maisha

Maisha

Sunday 2 June 2019   From 7:00pm, Stage: 7:30pm to 10:30pm
Venue: The Grand Theatre, 18 York Street, Clitheroe BB7 2DL Tel: 01200 421 599 | Web: www.thegrandvenue.co.uk | Tickets: £8 | Book Now: from The Grand's website

This is a post-festival gig by new band Maisha. Maisha's spiritual jazz is a part of a tradition leaden with traditions, histories and stories. Maisha carve out out their own style through that weight of expectation: they take stock of that history, channelling the greats like Pharoah Sanders, while filtering their own influences – ranging from jazz to Afrobeat – through every part of a musical process. It’s a sound which rests on trance-inducing rhythms, instinctive musical interchange and repeated, deeply enriching melodic refrains, a combination which has made for their own singular sound.

The six-piece group, led by bandleader Jake Long, brings a fresh slant to the weighty spiritual jazz tradition. Their 2016 debut EP was released through Jazz Re:freshed (whose weekly shows and record label are an institution for forward-thinking jazz), and was part of We Out Here, Brownswood’s early 2018 record which documented London’s genre-bending, jazz-influenced underground. They’ve been featured on Boiler Room, supported the Sun Ra Arkestra, and played at Church of Sound, a live series that’s quickly become a staple of the emergent scene.
