Ronnie's 1st to 15th August


Why not, dear readers, get yourselves down to Ronnie's in the first half of August. It's two weeks of all-British jazz- the official name is Britjazz Festival. (Media sponsor Jazzwise. )

Take a look: quite a range of different acts and different styles.

And a top price of £20 for several of the nights is the club's way of saying "Come On Down."


The press release today also flags up (more detail later I guess)

- album launches
- workshops & masterclasses
-a photography competition
- a ‘quiz show’ with a celebrity panel

(those single inverted commas round 'quiz show' are from the press release, I find them at the same time..... alluring and troubling!)

-There is also a "50:50" discount offer. Terms "For only £50, customers can purchase a ‘50:50 Pass’ which gives a 50% discount on any tickets bought for the season. "

Here's the programming , the pricing, and a few ideas:

-The Ronnie's debut of Gareth Lockrane's Big Band is something I don't intend to miss.
-The 13th with Iain Ballamy opposite James Pearson will be a good night.
-And either Soweto Kinch or Courtney Pine will lift the roof off!
