Since the Swing Unlimited Group teamed up with Centre Stage back in April 2010, our weekly Jazz Club has gone from strength to strength. Every Wednesday evening you will find different bands from within the SUBB Group, as well as the best local, national and international guest bands & musicians playing an eclectic range of jazz music, from hot to cool, standards to fusion, big bands to jazz guitar duos. A truly ideal "jazz space" with low ceiling, dimmed lights and candles on the table. You can drink and enjoy the atmosphere while listening to some of the best of live jazz in "...the friendliest jazz club in the South..."
Wonderful food is also available at SUJC, from full meals to "light-bites" - why not make a whole evening of it with us - great atmosphere, great food, great jazz - great night out!
