Latest News

We are delighted to be returning to Leeds Jazz Club for our next gig which is on Tuesday 14th September.

The Jazz Club are now in their new venue Mainline Social Club, Pudsey Road, Bramley, Leeds so we are looking forward to making our debut there.

We know that their audiences are keen Glenn Miller fans so there will be plenty of his music included in our programme together with other 1940s hits.

Neil Jowett



It is with very great sadness that we have to inform all our friends and supporters that our Musical Director, compere, trumpet player and very great friend Neil Jowett passed away on Tuesday 26th January, 2021 after a short battle with cancer.

Neil will be very greatly missed not only at our rehearsals, for his great musicianship, wisdom, patience and experience, but also by our audiences for his entertaining compering.

In February 2021, as a tribute to Neil, we recorded a piece of music composed by band member Richard Jones which he entitled NJ's Swinging Blues. Please Click here to go to our video page to view this video.

Socially Distanced Rehearsals

After 215 days we were able to hold 2 indoor rehearsals in October 2020 but then had to suspend our rehearsals again due to further lockdowns. We resumed in May 2021 with rehearsals under full Covid guidance from the Department of Culture and Social Media and with a full risk assessment in place.
