The Friday Night Series

The Jazz Cafe present the finest jazz in the South, spotlighting the stars of the UK jazz scene, established masters and burgeoning young talent in a relaxed, informal setting with friendly, attentive service, fine food and wine.


Zoot Money and his Big Roll Band

FRIDAY 19th JULY 2019

Bournemouth-born George “Zoot” Money is now regarded as an R&B legend. Inspired by the musicality and showmanship of Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis Zoot formed the first incarnation of the Big Roll Band in 1961.


Derek Nash


After a barnstorming performance in 2018 Derek Nash will be a popular guest to open our autumn season. Known for his energetic, passionate delivery and his mastery of all four saxophones, he has been the unsung hero of British jazz for nearly 30 years.


Nigel Price


Nigel Price is another regular guest in our Friday Night Series who has delighted audiences with his clear, flowing lines and melodic interpretations of jazz standards.

Sunday Lunchtime Sessions

Every Sunday between 1pm and 4pm we present the finest live jazz in the South courtesy of The Andy Urquhart Quartet with a varying line-up and special guests playing standards and modern jazz classics – the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday roast.

It is not necessary to book a table as we prefer to seat and serve customers as they arrive.
