Thursday, March 16, 2023

All dates have been confirmed for the Jazz Cocktail @ Rhostio series on the last Saturday each month. Listings attached.

From Facebook;

Following our enchanting evening with world-renowned Nashville-based jazz singer ERIN BODE (Sat 11 March), we’re hosting a regular monthly session “Jazz Cocktail @ Rhostio”.

Showcasing the best of jazz from South Wales and beyond, we look forward to celebrating names both familiar and new over the coming months.

Join us for a regular date in Rhostio’s intimate jazz-lounge setting, with some of the finest performers around, along with cocktail specials and coffee roasted on site!

We commence our series with “Take Four”: 4 great acts for your eclectic jazz mix from Swing to the Beatles, Bluegrass to Jazz Fusion, a musicology-meets-mixology treat if you then add your cocktail temptation (Rhostio’s Espresso Martini’s are recommended!).

With thanks to Elizabeth Jane Williams, James, Donnie Jo, and Sean for their enthusiastic response to the invitation.

That takes us to the end of June. Musicians are welcome to get in touch, we aim to showcase talent familiar and new.

Do *Spread the Word*: if we can build an audience, that means pull through to support future live jazz music!

SAT 25 March
#jazz #swing
Join us for an evening of Jazz and Swing from the 1930s/‘40s and beyond, with the consummate Keith Little Trio joined by the vocal brilliance that is Elizabeth Jane Williams.


SAT 29 April
#thebeatles #jazz #improv
“At this stage of musical history it’s not easy to find something new to say within the framework of The Beatles catalogue but J4 have managed it. Their arrangements are faithful to the spirit of the original songs but allow plenty of room for variation, improvisation and self expression.” (The Jazzman, Ian Man),


SAT 27 May
#bluegrass #westcoast #americana #oldtime #kentucky #california
It’s showtime! Hailing from South Wales, Lucky Truckers perform a mix of Americana, Old-Time music, Bluegrass, and West-Coast Country, with sounds from Kentucky to California!
Comprised of members with many years’ performing experience, the band’s regular lineup features fiddle, mandolin, guitars, bass and vocals.
A musical spectacle not to be missed, we hope that you can join us!

SAT 24 June
#jazz #fusion
“The Bluesters are a four-piece rock, blues, and jazz fusion band”. There’s no fussy words of promotion with these guys, they let their instruments do the talking. Think Dave Brubeck meets Jeff Beck.
