Non profit organisation promoting live performances of modern jazz.
Grimsby Jazz is a non-profit making organisation promoting high quality live jazz, which supports local, regional, national and international artists. It does this through events at the Old Clee Club Grimsby and the Cleethorpes Jazz Festival.
Established as a regular monthly venue in 2005 (founded 2003) when we received the first Arts Council Grant. Funding from JAZZYORKSHIRE enabled us to support ‘undiscovered’ talented musicians, and also be adventurous in inviting unusual line-ups of musicians to work together.
Grimsby Jazz also enables educational projects to take place to celebrate and develop the jazz genre. We seek to develop knowledge, understanding and interest in jazz, developing the talent and potential of young musicians through workshops that expose them to high quality music and musicians. We also wish to increase the musical appreciation of children whatever background. We are now developing cross art form workshops to generate greater interest for younger listeners. We aim to provide workshops for teachers and students, to develop their improvisational knowledge and skills; supporting workforce development, which supports the National Curriculum.
