Yule Time Jazz at The Star, Old Wives Lees, with The Stour Valley Jazz Band

Gerry Birch launched Thursday Night Jazz at The Star, Old Wives Lees, near Canterbury, Kent, over a year ago. The sessions are going from strength to strength and feature Gerry’s own Stour Valley Jazz Band along with other Kent based bands including Anything Goes, Vocalion and Tuxedo.

So Gerry asked Jazz&Jazz to help spread the word about The Star’s Yule Tide Jazz Party.

Hi All

Just to let everyone know, the Jazz Christmas Party at The Star is on Thursday, 20th December. Please come along and bring an instrument if you can. Bring your friends too. Our welcoming publican Barry wants to continue the Jazz next year and it would be great if we could all put on a good show for him. Light refreshments will be provided.

This will be our last Jazz Session for 2012. We start again on 10th January 2013.

Thursday night at The Star is becoming a top jazz attraction in East Kent. Newcomers are most welcome so don’t miss out.

Cheers

Gerry

    The intimate atmosphere at the Star lends itself to traditional jazz and is a highly recommended weekly venue for the music and all Kent based jazz fans. The beer is great too!
