Please note that from January 2020 Jazz at Boaters gigs will only be once a month rather than every week. These gigs will happen on the last Sunday of the month. After 29 years it is sad to lose the gig on a weekly basis, but at least we have one Sunday a month to look forward to. Sadly, this decision was made from a money making point of view, so we have to make every effort to ensure that the monthly gig is as successful as possible.

Last Month

Here are the details of last months gig which will give you an idea of the artists who play at Boaters. For the current upcoming gig list, please see the current listings.

Sunday 29th December - Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet

Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet

Charismatic jazz singer/songwriter Kevin Fitzsimmons is one of the most individual male jazz voices to emerge on the UK jazz scene recently and together with his band, they blend West Coast cool, hard swinging standards and blues-tinged ballads, all in the space of a relentlessly entertaining set.

He delivers a sassy new take on classic songs by the likes of Mercer, Strayhorn, Jobim, Legrand, Ellington and Porter, alongside new jazz translations of anthems from the likes of The Beatles, Sam Cooke and Paul Weller. Completing the quartet are Leon Greening on piano, Huw Williams on double bass and Lloyd Haines on drums.
