Lincoln jazz club looking for business bookings

Jazzing up events: A new jazz company is inviting local companies to sample its work for live music in corporate events.

A Lincoln Jazz collective is inviting local businesses to discuss including live music at their events.

Professional musicians from Lincoln Jazz are offering to play at one-off or regular corporate events, conferences, awards, dinners, weddings, business and other private events.

Businesses are invited to their Commuter Jazz sessions every Friday at the Cafe Resource, in Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, from 5pm to 7pm to sample the range of styles and instrumental combinations available.

Lincoln Jazz, formed in late August by local jazz musicians Stevie Smith and Graham McLusky, features musicians which have performed on West End theatre stages and appeared at major jazz festivals across Europe.

Graham McLusky from Lincoln Jazz said: “We will be really pleased to meet local businesses and individuals at the Café on Fridays to discuss their musical requirements. There is an opportunity for corporate and smaller businesses to entertain their clients at the Café too.”

Commuter Jazz is a free music event which showcases jazz musicians from across Lincolnshire. Its current season runs until May 31 next year.

The sessions continue this Friday September 28 with performances from Susan Valliant Speer Quartet, followed by Kate Cox Quartet and Derrick Harris Trio.

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “Jazz is a popular and growing part of Lincoln’s cultural scene and we are delighted to hear about the opportunities being created by Lincoln Jazz.”
