It’s Festival Time! 18th – 20th October. Check out all the info on our Festival Pages.

2019 – Booked so far:

 

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.

soul/ fusion singer/ composer Odette Adams https://www.musicbyodette.co.uk/about with her band  on 28th February.

A Few of our Past Gig Nights

 

 

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.
