Our themed evenings have been very popular, and our next one will be a 1920's Night on Friday 17th October, which we are putting on for the "Hastings Week" celebrations. We expect a large turnout and promotional flyers will be available which give non-members £2 off the usual admission. Vintage-style outfits are welcome, turn up in your party clothes, fancy dress optional as always. John Maddocks Jazzmen will be playing for our delectation.
We recently tried a new theme "Crazy Days of Summer" on Friday 8th August, which gave plenty of scope for interpretation. Hope to have some photo's on here or on Facebook soon.
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.
We meet every Friday at the Azur, doors open at 7.15 pm, bands play from 8.00 pm to 11.00pm.
