Hi Steve,
A group of us past and present co-op members (myself, James Farebrother, piano; Oli Vincent, electric bass; with Giovanni Greco, drums) are getting together to have a jazz jam session on Thursday12th January at the Alibi pub in Hove. My own experience has been that there is a big step between playing in the co-op, and playing in theexisting jam sessions around town where it can be difficult, and sometimes a little intimidating, to get up on stage. We hope to bridge that gap with an informal and supportive atmosphere where everyone
feels they can have a go, similar to the jam sessions I've played with the coop.
I'd be grateful if you could post this on the blog and mail it to the co-op members. This will be a one-off event but if it's successful, we hope to do more, and it would be great to have the support of co-op members for the first night, whether it's to play or just to listen to some jazz.
The Alibi Pub (22 Victoria Terrace, Hove) is on Kingsway, next to the Texaco Petrol Station and near the King Alfred Leisure Centre (
The jam will start at 8.30pm on Thursday 12th January. Entrance is free. Bring concert parts if possible, and we're looking forward to seeing you there!

Sounds like a great idea! I totally agree about some of the jams being a little intimidating. I'll be attending.

Sounds fantastic, looking forward to coming down to listen and support everyone playing. I'm not organised enough so taking a back seat this time :-)
