Reg Hendrickse, co-organiser of JazzHastings, answers questions from SJM editor Charlie Anderson.
How long has the club been going?
We have been going for 8 years.
How did it get started?
We started with a small group: John Donaldson, Agatha, Sophie and me at the Old Angling club.
Have you experienced any problems in terms of audience numbers and funding?
Since our move to the East Hastings Sea Angling Club 3 years ago there has been a slight decline in numbers.
Tell us about the future gigs that you have planned.
We have Gareth Lockrane’s group playing the music of Bheki Mseleku on November 11th and Andy Pickett's Mingus Underground Octet on 14th October.
JazzHastings puts on monthly gigs on the first Tuesday of each month.
