The Joy of Lockdown – 7 April 2020

Boy, do I miss the music. It looks like it will be a while before Fleece Jazz can be up and running again. We promise you great music when we do.

In the meantime,
You can keep your ears attuned to jazz by listening to our very own Gerry England’s Jazz Grooves. on Ipswich Community Radio,Thursday Nights from 8pm to 10pm.

If I cannot sleep, I put on the Fleece Jazz Facebook Channel. There are people all over putting up lovely music from their homes, and some collaborations at a distance too. Examples:
Alina Bzhezhinska on harp;
Pete Oxley and friends
A Salsa Party

Lots more.

Please be well and keep safe,
Dave

Charity Gig in Bildston

There will be a charity jazz concert in Bildeston on 4th October in aid of MIND. THREEBOP are a rising London vocal trio and band. People can see details and book tickets on this link https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/swing-in-the-autumn-charity-fundraiser-in-aid-of-mind-tickets-64789865231 Many thanks Peter Bullen

A good jazz deal if ever there was one (or two).

If you become a Friend of Fleece Jazz, your yearly subscription will give you a £4 discount on every gig you attend, and a bonus free gig after your Friends card has been fully stamped. Pretty good for £45, eh? Just see Peter on the megastore at gigs.

If you live a bit of a distance away, there is a special hotel deal. A double occupancy room, breakfast, and, oh yes, two jazz tickets, all for £109 is a pretty good deal. This is subject to availability. Call the hotel on 01206 262836.
