Lunchtime Jazz at The Bothy

Lunchtime Jazz at The Bothy is a twice-yearly event which aims to present top jazz musicians in a relaxed atmosphere intended to appeal to jazz aficionados as well as those who might not normally attend a jazz gig.
Patrons enjoy a 3-course lunch followed by an afternoon of great music from some of the best-known names in jazz. Later, there is an "after-party" in the bar where patrons can have a drink, enjoy a free buffet and meet the musicians.
It's a great way to while away a Sunday afternoon with good food, superb music and excellent company. This event is usually fully booked well in advance. But due to late cancellations there are a few tickets still available for the next Lunchtime Jazz at The Bothy on Sunday 28 April from 12:30.
Berkeley Street ReunionDavid Newton - Piano
Bobby Wishart - Saxophone
Andrew Sharkey - Bass
Sandro Ciancio - Drums
Ronnie Goodman - Percussion
Tickets are only £35 including 3-course lunch and evening buffet.To make a reservation email shambolicevents@gmail.com or call 07849 473916
