Ilkley Jazz Festival Events at The Grove

We have two great events being held on at The Grove as part of the Ilkley Jazz Festival

The Late Night Jazz Jam on Saturday from 10.30pm, hosted by Jazz singer Beverley Beirne with a professional trio of Matt Alpin on piano, Simon Read on bass and Matt Parkinson on drums.
If you want to play or sing in the jam just email us and we can allocate you a spot! Or just come and enjoy the live music and maybe a tipple or two!
There is no entry fee, but donations are always welcome!

The Jazz Brunch on Sunday is going to be the place to relax to the hard swinging sounds of gypsy jazz band Djangologie, The North East’s premier group bring a remarkable freshness to the Hot Club style. Noted for the way that they maintain the swinging spirit of the great Reinhardt – Grappelli outfits but without trying to be a carbon copy.
Firmly rooted in the Hot Club sound of the swing era, all four members of the band have a detailed acquaintance with the gypsy jazz tradition.They use this knowledge not just to recreate classics from the past but to apply the approach to a growing book of excellent originals played with virtuoso brio by four of the finest exponents of the style.
Again this event is free entry, and donations are welcome!
