About Us
Boston Spa
 

Jazz in The Spa – formerly Jazz at The Crown – began in the autumn of 1987 with regular Saturday sessions alternating two local Traditional Jazz Bands. From this beginning with modest attendances, the venture slowly flourished.

 

The organisation of the sessions was subsequently taken over by two local jazz enthusiasts, Les Brown and the late Tim Mallinson. Their efforts proved successful and the venture matured over the years to gain national recognition and to have one of the most appreciative and supportive audiences in the UK. As the same time, the Club began to present bands and world class solo artists from around the UK and abroad.

 

In 2004, following renovations at the hotel, the club was forced to seek an alternative venue and with the enthusiastic help of local entrepreneur, Ken Waller, relocated to the local Village Hall. The move coincided with the introduction of Cabaret Club style seating and a ‘Bring your own Bottle’ policy which have proved to be a winning formula.

 

Sessions are held most Saturday evenings – see Programme page – encompassing a variety of musical styles including Traditional, Mainstream, Big Band, the American Song Book, Rhythm and Blues, Boogoe Woogie and Gipsy Jazz. Something there for everyone.
