New Orleans jazz at the Festival

Saturday May 6 sees Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club welcomes Spats Langham’s Hot Fingers group as part of Darlington Arts Festival.
St Augustines Parish Centre in Larchfield Street 12.30pm
Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club has promoted live jazz in Darlington since 1996. From ragtime to swing, through the hot dance music of the 1920s, to the revivalist years of the 1950s and 1960s, with perhaps some be-bop and jive, they try to provide a programme with something for everyone. Jazz has always been about entertainment and connectivity between musicians and the audience but most of all it’s about tapping your feet and enjoying yourselves.
St Augustines Parish Centre in Larchfield Street is the home of Darlington New Orleans Jazz. Lunchtime sessions are held the first Saturday of the month 12:30 till 3pm.
There is free onsite parking, comfortable seating accommodation, and a well-stocked bar. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments but please purchase drinks at the bar.
Tickets for each event are £10 at the door with a 20% discount for DfC card holding members. Full details can be found on www.darlingtonjazz.co.uk or e-mail ray@darlingtonjazz.co.uk or graham@darlingtonjazz.co.uk
