Fleet Jazz Club holds monthly jazz performances from some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, in a “jazz club” environment at the Harlington Centre in Fleet. The club has an enthusiastic and growing membership since it started in January 2013, and we are always very happy to see new people too. There’s more about who we are and what we do here.

Tickets are available online, by phone (01252 811009) or on the door on the night. For more details on each event join our mailing list and follow us on our Facebook page.

We have a growing gallery of wonderful photos of recent gigs thanks to our friends at Aldershot, Farnham & Fleet Camera Club (AFFCC). Also we have created short profiles of most of the artists who have performed at Fleet Jazz Club.

JO FOOKS & STEVE WATERMAN QUINTET

Fleet Jazz is delighted to welcome the hard-swinging warm-toned tenor and flute player Jo Fooks, with Steve Waterman, one of the top British jazz trumpet players both at home and on the international scene.

Featuring Jo Fooks – tenor sax, Steve Waterman – trumpet, Ted Beament – piano, Marianne Windham – bass, Buster Birch – drums

Jo_Fooks

Well known and loved by audiences throughout the south, Jo Fooks, whose mellow tone is often compared to Stan Getz and Zoot Simms, won the ‘Young Scottish Musician of the Year’ and went on to study at the Guildhall in London and the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, before being recruited by the late Humphrey Lyttelton into his eight-piece band.

Steve Waterman is one of the top British jazz trumpet players both at home and on the international scene. He began his career while studying at Trinity College Of Music, and since then has worked regularly on the British and European jazz scene. Steve is a prolific composer, and has recorded several critically acclaimed CDs under his own name.

Ted Beament is one of the UKs most respected pianists, having played with the Humphrey Lyttleton Band for many years and, before that, with George Melly. In addition, Ted has played with just about every major name on the UK jazz scene – as well as many visiting American jazz stars.

Buster Birch studied drums and percussion at the University of London and later at the Guildhall School of Music. He moved to New York where he gigged and continued his studies at the drummers collective in Manhattan and privately  with Jo Morello (from Dave Brubeck’s famous quartet). He has since performed in over 30 countries with various orchestras, Jazz groups and other world music ensembles.
