Fwd: Brighton Jazz Club @ Komedia


For your information. Cuts to the arts and less money in the system
has its knock on effects.

Dear All,
Rather than add this in the body of the text advertising Friday night
I am circulating this as a separate email.

We normally cut back on promotions at this time of year, with the
Brighton Festival and the Summer months making the promotion of
regular nights more of a financial risk, this year we are having to
take a longer break to maintain the financial health and longevity of
Brighton Jazz Club.

It has become financially unviable for us to promote regular jazz at
Komedia and we have taken this opportunity to look for suitable,
affordable alternatives. We have some ideas in mind but at the moment
nothing is certain. What is certain is that we will be finishing in
the Komedia on Friday April 15th and reopening again on Friday
September 2nd.

We already have some exciting musicians booked in the Autumn season,
with the likes of Swedish saxophone sensation Marius Neset, pianists
Stan Tracey and Julian Joseph leading trios so we will be continuing
to promote top-quality,  cutting-edge international jazz.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your
continued support and hope that you will follow us as we look to
pastures new.

I will circulate details of the new venue(s) as soon as more
information is available.

Best wishes,
Tim Haillay
Brighton Jazz Club

It looks like BJC are now promoting a reduced programme for the Autumn/Winter - still at the Komedia
