Welcome to Teignmouth Jazz & Blues website. On here you will find information about our gig nights, the November festival, membership and contact information and much much more.
We host gig nights as often as we can, usually every other month. We put on a varied programme of Jazz and Blues at these popular evenings, held in The Riviera (the old cinema) on Teignmouth Seafront, attracting an audience both young and old.
Our festival, held every November, is a fabulous weekend long event that attracts people from far and wide. We present international, national and local artists. We aim to promote new talent as well as established musicians at our main venues and at the very popular fringe events.
Teignmouth Jazz is managed by the Jazz Team - a committee of volunteers elected annually by Teignmouth Jazz members. The present line-up is a relatively new configuration - a group of diverse, experienced jazz enthusiasts who bring their talents to promoting all aspects of jazz and blues. Some members of the Team plan the gigs, the Annual Jazz & Blues Festival and the promotion and publicity. Other members bring their skills to the admin side of things. The Team also produce the occasional e-newsletter for members. The Team is always open to ideas and practical help. Anyone wishing to help is invited to contact the secretary [see 'Contacts'] – they will be most welcome!
