Upcoming Gig News!
Live Music is back!
Friday 28th May 7.30pm
What better way to celebrate the return of live music than with the beautiful voice of the internationally acclaimed Gabrielle Ducomble and her trio of guitar, bass and violin? Jazz FM is only too right when they say ‘she is a singer/guitarist who exudes charm, warmth and a silky-smooth, soulful, seductive voice.’ With a mixture of tango, French torch song and contemporary jazz this will be a wonderful tonic to bring your spirits up!
With great regret the Bronx upstairs is a casualty of the pandemic and will not return as a music venue. Our sincere thanks to Dee and Patrick, whose generous hospitality gave us so many wonderful memories over the years. All success to you in your future ventures.
However we are pledged as ever to provide live music. We have been unable to date to find a bio secure and viable venue for club nights but hopefully a new base will be found when regulations relax. In the meantime we will try and book gigs where and wherever we can and will do our best to remain within our current tariff:-
We are aware that some of our audience may be cautious about going to venues in the current crisis. WE assure you that TJB is taking maximum precaution to ensure that all venues we use will comply fully with anti covid bio security.

Capacity 100. For bio security please try and book tickets in advance in person from Regents Style or the Old Riviera Cinema or on line from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/teignmouthjazzandblues
Nigel Price is probably the most dynamic and gifted guitarist on the British jazz scene today and this is the proof.” All about Jazz
Our first big stage gig of the year is in the magnificent Old Riviera Cinema in all its ‘60s grandeur it is a theatre that hosted many famous bands in that era. A big stage, raked seating and top class lighting will make this an even more memorable evening.
The Nigel Price Organ Trio ( https://www.nigelprice.biz) is a band that truly deserves a stage presence like this. Nigel, voted best guitarist in UK, brings a night of thrilling high octane blues infused jazz in partnership with Ross Stanley(https://www.whirlwindrecordings.com/ross-stanly), said by many to be the Hammond organ player of choice in the jazz, blues and pop world. His iconic sound is not to be missed.
The band will be playing many originals, some standards and Nigel will be previewing tunes from his forthcoming CD, ‘Wes Re-Imagined’ that reworks the compositions of Wes Montgomery with different feels.
Adding further power to their sound is one of the hottest sax players around Vasilis Xenopoulos (https://vasilisxenopoulos.com) on tenor sax. According to the Guardian “When the players are, Xenopoulos and Nigel Price…..the outcome is downright irresistible.”
Holding the beat together is rising star Laura Klain on drums, much in demand with many top
jazz performers she also has a wide range of projects of her own involving the many sides of her personality from blue note to psychedelic funk (https://www.lauraklain.com)
This is the last Devon gig of Nigel’s 2020 national tour and apart from many favourites he will be featuring numbers for his forthcoming so make sure you book for what will be a fabulous well booked performance

Due to quarantine restrictions and tier 2 gig cancellations in London Gabrielle who is in France will unfortunately not be able to make her gig with us next month. Optimistically, the Pavilions and TJB have rescheduled for the above date when we know Gabrielle and her guitarist the fabulous Nick Meier will be free. It will be well worth the wait we promise.

Blues – Saturday 21st September – Kyla Brox
This was the first in a series of joint ventures between Pavilions Teignmouth and Teignmouth Jazz and Blues, initially featuring female artists. Playing to a nearly sold out auditorium, the band started to play a lovely slowish riff as the radiant figure of Kyla Brox approached the mic to start what turned out be a marvelous evening of wonderful music. This first number immediately displayed the beauty and power of her voice with several people commenting during the break how emotional they had felt from the beginning. She showed an incredible range in her voice and at least on two occasions seemed to hold a perfect note for what seemed like minutes! Much of the music was original compositions, a lot from their latest recording called Pain and Glory, though they did end the first set with their wonderful take on one of Kyla’s idols, Etta James and her version of “I’d rather go blind”Many commented on the excellent musical standard of the band who were in particularly good form though I was told that Paul Farr on lead Guitar was suffering from a nasty cold. The drummer, Mark Warburton however, whose playing throughout was fantastic, accused him of feigning a touch of man flu’! This only underlined how well the band seemed to gell and get on. They were certainly a tight outfit that night.
Kyla indeed was very generous in her praise of her fellow musicians who included her husband, Danny Blomeley on bass who in turn impressed the audience with a couple of fine solos.
Paul Farr on lead was outstanding, showing a versatility and range which was quite magnificent. The skill of the local sound man, Dominic Jeffries, deserves a special mention as the sound quality was spot on all night.
Finally they left possibly the best to last with their rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” which brought most of the audience to their feet to salute the mastery of this fine band. A very good evening was had by all.
