Louth Jazz Club struck all the right notes at its recent fundraising night with Spats Langham's band, ‘Hot Fingers’.
Sponsored by Specsavers in the town, the event raised enough to help cover four months’ rent through ticket sales, bar purchases and raffle takings at the non-profit music venue.
The visiting headliners entertained the capacity audience with an eclectic mix of vintage acoustic music, transporting them from the red-hot jazz of 1920s New York to the nightclubs of 1930s London, and on to Paris’ ‘French Coffee House’ sound of Django Reinhardt.
Reflecting on the night
Geoff Mullett of Louth Jazz Club said: ‘The Jazz Club has been at the centre of Louth’s jazz scene for more than 50 years and it’s a real labour of love for all involved.
‘We’re more committed than ever to delivering first-class jazz music and thanks to the generosity of our visitors and the backing of local businesses like Specsavers, we’re in a great position to keep doing what we love.’
Jenni Brown, director of Specsavers in Louth, added: ‘We were delighted to be able to help facilitate this fantastic night at the local jazz club.
‘It’s a real local treasure, enjoyed by music fans across Louth and beyond, and we offer our congratulations for such a successful event.’
Visitors to Louth Jazz Club can enjoy live music on Saturday evenings with the club’s resident bands, and occasional guest bands.
