Big Band Listings

Big band listings are now integrated into the main listings. You can read more about local big bands in the monthly column Big Band Scene.

Details are assumed to be correct at the time of publication.

If you are traveling a long distance, contact the venue before setting out, in order to confirm that it is still going ahead.

Timings

The times listed are those given by the venue. This is normally the start time so you will have to get there about 30mins beforehand to get a seat, a drink and settle down.

[R] = Residency

The listed performer plays there regularly (but may not be there every week) and may have special guests.

(c) = collection

Gigs listed as free will often have a collection where customers are asked to contribute money to the musicians.

If you’d like your gig or concert in our listings then please email sjmlistings@gmail.com with the subject heading ‘Listings’.

All listings in SJM are free of charge.
