Who Are We

The Society was started in March 1995, as the Old Duke Jazz Society, in response to -the overwhelming support given to the campaign to save Jazz at the Old Duke. This demonstrated the popularity of live jazz in the Bristol area and the need for jazz fans to keep in touch with the local 'scene'. The name was changed to reflect the fact that the Society is involved in promoting and supporting jazz throughout the Bristol area and beyond! We intend in the future to foster young musicians and schools, and encourage them to play instruments and learn more about music - especially Jazz!
We charge only a very small annual fee of 5 per member (7 for two people at the same address) to cover costs such as paper & postage, as we want The Society to be open to as many people as possible.
