Welcome to Grimsby Jazz
Grimsby Jazz has been a not for profit organisation promoting live performances of modern jazz from leading musicians, and supporting top quality local and regional artists for 15 years. We began in 2003 and became established as a monthly venue in October 2005 when we received our first funding from the Arts Council for a piano and PA system. Since then we have had further support from the Arts Council to commission this website and produce and distribute an events brochure. The Arts Council and our sponsors have supported numerous projects over the past 15 years including many and varied school workshops, support for student jazz bands from Grimsby and Leeds College of Music, and performances in unusual places.
Grimsby jazz no longer promotes regular jazz gigs in order to focus on projects with wider reach and impact and support further educational projects.This is due in part to Gill Wilde moving out the area to be closer to family.
Warren Jolly is still hoping to develp a programme of monthly Jazz at Moon on the Water, Cleethorpes with a team of people to support it. An announcement will be made when this happens.
