Our themed evenings have been very popular, and we are continuing with them in 2014, with a new one "Crazy Days of Summer" on Friday 8th August, see "Latest News" for more details. This one should give plenty of scope for a wide interpretation, anything from Glastonbury to Glyndebourne, seaside to sporty! Or just come along and enjoy the fun. Promotional flyers giving £2 off for non-members are available at the club, or you can download and print one from our Facebook page.
We held our second Mardi Gras Night on 28th February, which brought around twenty new people to the Club, with many in fabulous costumes; and our usual "Easter Bonnet" parade took place on Good Friday when the versatile Bob Dwyer's Bix 'n' Pieces played.
The 1940's Night on 9th May was again very popular; Jeremy Huggett's Harlem Five played dance music from the twenties, thirties and forties and The Cinque Ports Lindy Hoppers treated us to two energetic dance routines. The photo below was taken during their dance display at the Club last year.
Films are made of our themed evenings and shown on the screen in reception during jazz nights, and copies of these DVDs may be ordered from Rita at the Club.
The 1066 Jazz Club was formed in 1996 and takes pride in continuing the tradition of providing New Orleans Jazz on the Sussex coast. Whether you just want to sit back, enjoy a drink or two listening to a live band or dance the evening away, you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
