Jazz Jam - Christmas Special
Sunday 30th December 2018
2:00pm - 10:00pm
Welcome to the Nottingham Jazz Jam Christmas Edition. It’s been a fantastic year with appearances by so many top UK artists including Dennis Rollins, Chris Bowden, Esmond Selwyn, Sean Gibbs, Pat McCarthy & Nigel Price. In September we moved from the Malt Cross to Peggy’s Skylight providing the perfect backdrop to our monthly concert into Jam session. To round up the year we bring together our favourite local musicians and bring you a Hard-Bop take on Christmas classics from the American Songbook featuring guest singers Jeanie Barton and Rachel Foster.
Like each month, the house band (Matt Ratcliffe, Martyn Spencer & Andrew Wood) perform a 60 minute concert, this month with Jeanie and Rachel sharing the vocal spot before moving into the Jazz Jam. This one is going to be a treat as many of our best local musicians who are usually away on tour will join us for the post concert improv set.
If you’re a musician and are interested in taking part in the Jazz Jam, introduce yourself and signup to play on the door before the main concert.
For players and singers, Christmas repertoire is encouraged. We hope as many people as possible can join for our first 'Hard Bop Christmas' at Peggy's Skylight!
Watch out for a brand new 2019 Jazz Jam program at Peggy's Skylight on the last Sunday of every month.Back to all events
Jazz Jam - Christmas Special
These are the premium seats, each one having clear sight lines to the stage. You can request to be seated in Dizzy (raked theatre), Duke (side wall), Monk or Bird (bar) or Billie (front of stage) and we will do our best to allocate you to your favourite seats on a first come, first served basis. Each of these seats is at a table or bar where you can order food and drink with table service.
Standing tickets are for the bar area behind the seated auditorium. We politely ask that you stand within this area so as not to obscure the view of the seated audience.
SEATED (RESTRICTED VIEW) TICKET
The two areas by the front windows are generally used for group bookings. In the event that there are no groups in for a specific show, we will make available seated tickets, some of which are slightly restricted viewing.
We are able to cater for bookings of up to 22 people in the area 'Ella', up to 12 in 'Satchmo' and up to 10 in the area called 'Mingus'.
We can also arrange for a standing buffet for more people on request
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your enquiry
SPECIAL ACCESS NEEDS
Please email email@example.com to reserve a suitable seat for you and your party
We have an accessible toilet on the ground floor
ADVANCE TICKETS/ON THE DOOR
Advance ticket sales finish at 18:30 on the day of the concert. We often agree a split of ticket takings in the artist's favour, and so we are inclined to add a premium to tickets purchased on the door to encourage them to come back and perform for us again!
