A true musical feast is promised this weekend, as local, national and international musicians take part in Grimsby’s first Jazz Prom.
The event takes place at Grimsby Minster this Saturday, October 18, from 2pm to 5.30pm.
The powerhouse that is The New York Brass Band will provide an exuberant start to the afternoon, playing first in St James’ Square and then leading the audience in to the Minster.
Then expect an eclectic mix of jazz infused lively sounds from Grimsby’s Steel the Rhythm, who will take to the stage and perform new work devised with the area’s leading jazz guitarist, Pat McCarthy.
Afternoon tea will be served during an extended interval and then the prom concludes with an unforgettable finale from Gypsy Jazz sensation Ultraswing, featuring sultry chanteuse Lo Broderick and Grimsby’s own Matt Wilson on guitar.
Tickets for Jazz Prom @ Grimsby Minster cost £10 for adults and £4 for children, including afternoon tea, from the Minster Office on 01472 358610 or organisers Grimsby Jazz on 01472 873730
