Spotlight on… Jazz at St Andrews

Spotlight on…

Welcome to the first of a new occasional series where we will be showcasing our fabulous BHAC Member Groups!

First up, we shine our Spotlight on Jazz at St Andrews…

Jazz at St Andrews

Jazz at St Andrews is the brainchild of local jazz trumpeter Chris Coull, and it first came to life in August 2021.

St Andrews Church hosts some of the top names in jazz from around the UK and internationally on selected Friday evenings from 6pm-8pm. Ticket sales help raise money for the church, and the concerts support the local and wider music community in partnership with the local church fellowship.

The Jazz at St Andrews series has grown into a regular fixture, showcasing the greats of Jazz – think Thelonius Monk, Miles Davies – alongside an eclectic mix of gipsy jazz, Brazilian rhythms, and much more.

St Andrews Church is on New Church Road in Hove, BN3 2FN. Situated close to a multitude of bars and restaurants, it is a great place to kick off a Friday night with some sweet jazz!

Jazz at St Andrews is back this week with a new Spring season, beginning on Friday, April 14th with a set from The Jazz Mafia Big Band:

“Led by Brighton based saxophonist Alex Bondono, the band are jam-packed with talent from around Sussex in every department. It promises to be an high energy start to this year’s Jazz concerts.”

Tickets from £10, available on the door, cash or card, or via Chris Coull’s website. Doors are open from 5:30pm.
