Jazz at the Fleece is an association of people interested in jazz. They volunteer their time, and draw no funds from the club. The club is non-profit (you better believe it), and receives no subsidies from any person or organization. In other words, the people who come to listen to some of the best jazz available in the country, pay for the musicians and the running costs. We do try to keep the latter to a minimum.
Please email email@example.com. Our booking person is Michael Burgess, and his phone number is 01787 211442.If you have a booking with us, it would be a great help if you filled in this form, to supply us with publicity material.
Our equipment list is available as a pdf file, or a Word file.
When travelling to the club, sat-navs can be a bit inaccurate from our postcode (CO6 4PZ). Please look at the map, and do not take the path around the back of the hotel.
Unloading and loading kit is easy. There are loading doors to the right of the hotel entrance. If they are closed, go to reception and ask for them to be opened. You can then park in the parking lot.
Recording facilities are available, either simple stereo pair, or up to 18 mics. The equipment list documents contain the recording equipment as well. Our sound tech, Dave, is happy to do this at no cost to the band, but requires a weeks notice.
Please do note that Dave needs the permission of the band members before he will record.
For further technical information about live sound or recording, please email Dave Lyons.
This is a picture of a largish gig (Sax Appeal, 27/12/13). The piano is hidden behind Derek. We work in thrust – audience on three sides. Drum and piano lovers tend to use the sides. We can accomodate an audience of about 140, or with the loss of the band room, 170.
