About Us

Coventry has, for many years boasted a vibrant jazz scene with a wealth of local musical talent and enthusiastic fans.

Jazz-a-matazz was formed in 2008 (formerly Westwood Jazz), following the sad demise of the well loved and popular Sunday afternoon jazz at The Cocked Hat in Binley.

Jazz-a-matazz then hosted live jazz sessions for 12 years at The Westwood Reading Rooms, Westwood Heath Road, Coventry, CV4 8GP.

Following the Coronavirus pandemic, all of the live jazz was cancelled at The Westwood and the management at the Westwood have concluded it is “not viable” for us to host there any longer.

We have secured a new venue, and we hope to continue to promote live jazz at

The Eastern Green Social Club
Church Lane

We will try to put on as many covid safe gigs on a Sunday as Boris will allow! These will be 12:30 – 15:00, until the Coronavirus pandemic is better controlled and then we will be weekly again.

Please see diary page for dates and band information.

Whether you are new to jazz or a seasoned jazzer; our live music sessions offer a great value for money afternoon of music and entertainment.  The different jazz styles range from Traditional, New Orleans, Hot Club, Swing and Be-bop, no genre is unheard of!

These rules are boring, but necessary.  And it’s certainly better than nothing!
