John Maddocks Jazzmen - 8th January 2016

More than 70 people braved the rain to listen and dance to the John Maddocks Jazz Men who were making a return visit after their near sell-out performance in November last year.

During the evening John and the band played 'Lull at Dawn' in memory of clarinet player Johnny Rodgers who died on 3rd January.

Jools & The Jazzaholics - 11th March 2016

What a night! This fabulous band kept us entertained all evening with plenty of numbers for the dancers too. 'I Found a New Baby', a feature for John Maddocks with a superb solo from each member of the rhythm section, brought the crowd to its feet - something rarely seen at SJC.

Tim Eyles' Gentlemen of Jazz - 14th October 2016

.Tim Eyles' Gentlemen of Jazz provided the entertainment for this evening which was ideal for those preferring to sit back and listen rather than dance. The highlight for most people was the superb solo by Colin who played a captivating 'Sunny Side of the Street' reminiscent of the great Lester Young.
