Elvyn Griffiths past Society Chairman passed away on Saturday 3rd October.
Elvyn, was an ardent jazz follower. He frequented the White Horse and was elected
Chairman of the Society in 2007, a post he held for nine years.
He was always keen to broaden the Society's presence across Bristol and constantly sought to involve younger musicians and followers. In his support capacity for Bristol University Overseas Students he used every opportunity to make them aware of jazz in Bristol.
He lead history walks of Bristol which he contrived to end at the
Old Duke. Also introducing many of them to other venues around the City.
His health deteriorated during the last few years but he was always positive. He looked to make a recovery until his last few days.
He will be sadly missed.

Dear Jazzing Friends We hope that you are all well.
Unfortunately I have had to cancel the Jazz Concert planned for November. The restrictions in place to keep us all safe has meant that the number that we could accommodate at an event in the Oldland Village Club would be no more than 50, including the band. This makes staging the event financially unrealistic. I have therefore decided to postpone the concert and the new date for your diaries is 12th March 202l.
l am hoping that you will all bear with me in these difficult times and retain your interest and booking. We sincerely hope that the situation will have improved by then but, in the event of social distancing measures still being in place at that time and it being necessary to cancel the event again, I will cancel a final time and refund any monies paid less a small amount to cover costs already paid and irrecoverable. (Deposit paid in respect of room hire is being carried forward to the new date and therefore has not been lost). As you know any surplus after all costs are met is donated to a worthy charity and, as all charities are suffering from a loss of income due to the effects of the pandemic,your support is invaluable. We are sure that, all being well, the concert next March will be an exceptional event. If the new date will not be convenient to you please inform us as soon as possible.
If you would like to promote yourself or your band on this website, with at least one member being a Jazz Society member, please email
