TJB and Pavilions Teignmouth proudly present
Ladies sing the……
With award winning singer/songwriter Kyla Brox
September 21st sees us on a new venture when we go into partnership with Pavilions Teignmouth presenting our ‘Lady Sings’ series of occasional concerts at the Pavilions celebrating the female voice and featuring top of the range singers. First off, is the astounding singer and composer Kyla Brox and her band. Voted European Blues singer of the year, this is a very rare opportunity to hear her in the South West with a concert that features blues, soul and even standards such as ‘Hallelujah’.
She knocked us for six at the Festival and it is a delight to have her back on the big stage where a big audience can appreciate her talents. Book early through the Pavilions Box Office for an unforgettable evening

October 18th-20th. Yep it’s the Festival and now a month earlier when we guarantee warmer weather and longer days! Well the latter at least. Booking is complete and it is a great line up to celebrate our thirtieth birthday. Expect also a party atmosphere in town when we hope to have bands on the street. Full details as they appear on the web site. We also have changed our booking system which will be managed by Pavilions Teignmouth. Ticket prices are pegged and with new discount schemes for advance booking and multi tickets. As a birthday present, we are swallowing costs and have removed excessive booking charges for online customers who will pay just slightly more than desk sold tickets.
November 13th. If we are still standing then we have a wonderful evening coming up with a new slant on what jazz is when we welcome Talinka. We all love Gilad Atzmon and the OHE who are great friends of TJB. What you may not know is that his wife is an artist and performer. In her own right and is now heading up her own project. Supported by Gilad and Yuri from OHE she joins forces with Jenny Bliss Bennet a virtuosa baroque viola da gamba and violin player to provide a unique and wonderful sound combining vocals and varied instruments. Tali says “Talinka is a music-loving adventure. For us the love of music extends beyond style and genre; we blend folk, early music, jazz, tango and free improvisation. We believe in songs and beauty being vital forces of nature. We adhere to simplicity, harmony and warmth. The outcome is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure”.
Who am I to disagree? Come along for a wonderful evening that crosses boundaries and please bring your friends who may like folk, classical as well as jazz. They will thank you.
Dec 4th It’s Christmaaaas and to kick of the festive season we are hosting the wonderful Annika Skoogh and Mixology who will be giving the Bronx a really festive feel with a mix of popular standards and hopefully some Christmas flavoured treats. Incidentally because we know you like her so much we have invited he band Orpheus back for the Festival which is having a strong female presence this year.
2020 Acts are lining up so keep an eye on the web site. Let us know who you would like and we shall see what we can do.
Best wishes and a great listening year to you
