Silvershine Jazz Club

During the summer the future of Bearwood Jazz was very touch and go! What with the sad departure of the great jazz legend Andy Hamilton and rumours of arts cuts the future for Bearwood Jazz looked very uncertain.

Thankfully the Bearwood Jazz team put their thinking caps together and decided it was time for a fresh approach. The result's the Silvershine Jazz Club, named in honour of Andy Hamilton's legendary jazz track.
 The Club's having an extra special launch night on Thursday 20th December featuring the amazing talented dude Soweto Kinch! Definitely not to be missed.

We grabbed a quick chat with jazz cats Paul and Kim Foad to find out more:

"It's a great scoop having such a wonderful saxophonist playing at the launch. The first half of the evening will be a jam night with the Blue Notes as we want to give as many as musicians a chance to play. We will also be having local musicians who have supported the club playing.

Also, Richard, who has worked tirelessly for Bearwood Jazz for years, has updated the website for the jazz club, which we think is brilliant."

"We are now taking bookings for any jazz or blues bands who would like to appear at the Corks Club in 2013." So if there’s any jazz bands that you would like to see play Bearwood or if you are a jazz player keen to play at one of the coolest jazz clubs around please email the Silvershine Jazz Club with the details to
You may also be interested to know that there's going to be a radio interview with Paul Foad and Dutch Lewis on Radio WM. They will be chatting with Carl Chinn at 12:45pm on 16th December 2012 about the launch and Dutch, having played with Andy for over 50 years, will be sharing some wonderful memories and stories about the times they had together.
