What is Jazz on the Weekend?

Running from 1pm to 6pm on Saturday 18 June, Jazz on the Weekend is a FREE afternoon of chilled live music in the great outdoors at Tetbury Goods Shed.

The action unfolds on and around the former cattle loading dock beside the Goods Shed*.

There’ll be superb musicianship from the likes of James Morton’s Groove Den. And plenty of food and drink on sale, including pizzas and locally-brewed real ales and ciders.

No complications. No tickets. No pre-booking. No touts. No French riot police. Just rock up with some cushions, well-behaved pets (no bears or horses, though), and/or kids, whenever the fancy takes you.

* In the event of non-co-operation by The Great British Weather, we’ll take the event inside the Shed and Carry On Regardless.

The Music

James Morton’s Groove Den

James is one of the most exciting saxophone players of his generation. He has been touring internationally for the past 18 years with a variety of projects and 2022 saw James launching his new hard hitting creation Groove Den.

This project features new material drawing on his influences from soul, jazz, hip-hop and tough, grooving beats, hence the name Groove Den.

James has the ability to directly connect with audiences through his soulful, lyrical and flamboyant style and is backed by a world class rhythm section.

London Django Collective

Original jazz from London inspired by Django Reinhardt. This collective was born out of the desire to create a local and innovate forum for musicians influenced by the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt. The Collective remains in the spirit of Django, whilst pushing the genre of gypsy jazz forward into the vibrant London jazz scene.

Gypsy jazz has always had a place in the hearts of revivalists and traditionalists, but the London Django Collective have a vision of true progression for the style whilst nodding to the great musicians who came before them showcasing their own take on how this vibrant European style of jazz can be a springboard for new music.

Dave Newton Trio

Dave Newton began his musical career in theatre before switching to jazz piano.

Thanks to an award-winning album with Scottish singer Carol Kidd, Newton gained a reputation as an accompanist for singers such as Marion Montgomery, Tina May, Annie Ross, Claire Martin and of course Stacey Kent, with whom he spent years recording and travelling all over the world.

While all this was going on, Newton was composing music which can now be heard on many television productions, especially in the United States where over twenty TV movies benefit from Newton’s haunting themes.

Dave appeared at the Goods Shed to great acclaim back in 2017 when we were first getting started, so we are delighted to welcome him back
