Quotes:

“This place is like a Hogarth print!” – Alan Barnes

“Yet another great evening at The East Side Jazz Club, in Leytonstone. Clive Fenner, seems to have an unerring ability to provide top quality British jazz and long may he continue to do so. This has to be, one of the friendliest jazz clubs, I have had the pleasure to attend and one of the best value bars. Thanks to all concerned, for your hard work, behind the scenes, best wishes from Camberwell Green” – Mark Blewer

“Special mention must be made of Clive Fenner, the resident drummer. I can’t imagine the levels of experience, skill and confidence his role, as an accompanist to the weekly changing cast of visitors, must require.” – downwithit.info blog

“..this consistently classy east London jazz night..” – Time Out

“..musician-led weekly gig where the feeling of community is very strong. Drummer Clive Fenner’s Leytonstone gig once included one of the legends of jazz – and I heard him for just £5. Trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, originally from Canada, is one of the most original and respected jazz trumpet voices in the world. He recently had a high-profile festival in New York take place in his honour and his compositions are played all over the world” – Sebastian Scotney, LondonJazz

“A bit of an institution this; The East Side Jazz Club has been taking over the Lord Rookwood since time began almost, and is still regarded as one of the best jazz nights in the East End…A great night in a very friendly little pub!” – Spoonfed.co.uk

“Another inspired off-piste line up for this East London jazz hotspot..” – Time Out

“This excellent east London session returns with a bang” – Time Out

“..and last, but not least, our resident drummer, fixer and M.C., Clive Fenner, how lucky we are to have Clive looking after our musical interests. He provides us with a never ending stream of quality British jazz, in the welcoming environment of The Leytonstone Ex-Servicemen’s Club. My thanks to Clive, for his tasteful interjections from the drum chair and all the hard work he does behind the scenes. Talking of which, a shout out to all of those club members, who magically move chairs and tables from one place to another and all the other things that happen, just leaving us to have another great evening in good company. Thanks to you all for all your hard work, it is appreciated.” – Mark Blewer, jazz aficionado and club regular
