Jazz club launches in Brindleyplace

Opening in late September, Le Monde will launch a weekly Friday night jazz and blues club in its bar. Admission will be free and shows will run from 18:00 to 20:30.

The opening night, Friday 25th September, features blues singer and guitarist Brooks Williams from Statesboro, Georgia. Brooks was placed at number 179 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 1000 best guitarists ever. Among the guitars that Brooks features is a funky, seemingly home-made Cigar Box Guitar – coincidentally built in Birmingham by Chickenbone John, who bills himself as The Godfather of The Cigar Box Guitar.

Appearing over the following weeks are The Remi Harris Trio [October 2nd] - featuring the Hereford-based Remi, who is currently the most talked about young guitarist in jazz - The Whiskey Brothers [9th] from Kings Heath, currently in the middle of The Hometown Tour, promoting their Big Bear Records album Bottle Up and Go and The Rumblestrutters [16th] from Mumbles in South Wales. 

Gemma Meah, manager of Le Monde, said:

“We had such fun with the live bands we presented here as part of this year’s Birmingham Jazz &Blues Festival, that we decided that we simply couldn’t wait until next July, so we got together with the Festival organizers and this is the result”.
