Stafford Jazz Society, which celebrated its own 40th anniversary in October of last year, is throwing a free jazz concert on Saturday 4th June 2022 from 12-30pm to 2-30pm during the long PLATINUM JUBILEE weekend.

It will feature live music from 70 years ago, in keeping with the H.M. the Queen’s seven-decade reign.

The fifties was a good time for British “trad jazz”, with the “three Bs” – Ball, Barber and Bilk – just starting out. The PEDIGREE JAZZ BAND, sponsored by Marston’s Brewery, authentically and nostalgically reproduces that era. The band includes musicians who actually played in the three outfits.

The White Eagle Club has ample free parking as well as bar and refreshments availability for which there is a charge.

The Stafford Jazz Society meets weekly for live concerts of mainly traditional jazz at the White Eagle Club on Sunday lunchtimes from September to May every year. The Society’s Chairman, Nick Balmforth MBE said: “We thought it a good idea to mark the Platinum Jubilee in this way. It promises to be a happy, foot-tapping couple of hours of iconic jazz music.”
