Final Gig at The Keys

It is with immense sadness that we at Jazz At The Keys have to announce that we have now hosted our final gig. As we indicated in our last post, our audience numbers have simply not been sufficient to sustain a programme of high quality gigs for some time now and so we have had to take the difficult but necessary decision that we can no longer afford to present top class live jazz.

However, we went out on a high last night. The outstanding pianist Dean Stockdale was our guest. Together with Dave Rocky Tyas and Ben Crosland, he presented a beautiful programme of imaginative arrangements of classic standards and engaging original compositions. It was a magical evening and a fitting way to bring down the curtain on six years of excellent modern jazz at this atmospheric venue.

We are proud of the roster of national and international artists that have graced our club since 2016 and we thank all those who have supported our concerts since then. As always, massive thanks to Pete Woodman for these wonderful photos.
