Play an instrument? Like Jazz?
If you want to play in a band, but….
- You don’t know enough players to form one.
- You don’t know anyone good enough to lead a band.
- You’re not sure if you’re good enough.
- You play your instrument well enough, but don’t know much about jazz.
Or you already play in a band, but…
- You’re fed up of playing the same old thing and want to try something new.
- You can’t make progress because there’s always someone who can’t make the practice.
… Then come and join us!
We meet on the last Wednesday of the month (usually, but check the calendar) in the Godshill Village Hall at 7:30pm.
