    J G Jazz

    With 40 years of experience as a professional jazz and blues pianist and band leader, John Beckingham has drawn together a group of highly experienced musicians and vocalists from some wonderfully diverse performance backgrounds - from blues, street jazz and traditional jazz to West End musical theatre.

    They all have in common a passion for the popular music of the 1920s to the early 1950s, including Jazz Standards, Swing, Latin, Blues, The Great American Songbook and the movie & musical theatre numbers of the era. The band consists of John Beckingham: Piano and vocals, Gilly Leeper: Vocals, Phil Probert: Guitar Banjo and vocals, Keith Tolley: Double Bass and vocals, John Caplin: Saxophones and vocals, and guest drummer Paul Holder: Drums.

    All going ahead subject to Coventry remaining in coronavirus Tier 1 restrictions. Should Coventry move from Tier 1 to Tier 2, jazz will be postponed.

    Pre-booked tickets only, so that seating can be safely arranged.
