Tickets are still on sale for the festival and you can buy them here. As it is so close to the festival we are now issuing e-tickets. Limited tickets will be available on the door.
If the festival itself is not enough and you need a good boogie, why not come to one of our after parties held on each night of the festival? Friday and Saturdays after parties will be held at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath. The Hare & Hounds is a short distance from Moseley Park and a nice walk on a summer’s eve. The Bull’s Head in Moseley will host Sunday’s after party.
Come and join us on Thursday 14 April at the Hare & Hounds to celebrate the launch of Mostly Jazz Festival 2011. A FREE taster of the treats in store at the festival this year!
Playing will be Matthew Halsall – 26 year old trumpeter, composer, arranger, DJ, producer and band leader who will also play the main stage on the festival Saturday.
Halsall picked up the trumpet at just 6 years old after being taken to a jazz gig by his parents. From the age of 14 he has toured the world.
His debut album Sending My Love was released in October 2008 on the newly formed independent jazz label Gondwana Records. The album received rave reviews and heavy airplay from the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1), Stuart Maconie (BBC 6 Music), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and Mike Chadwick (Jazz FM). He is currently recording his new album.
‘Rain-streaked spiritual jazz from Manchester.’ The Independent on Sunday
Halsall will be joined by a set by DJ Sam Redmore (DJing on the festival Friday), driving force behind celebrated Birmingham club night Freestyle. The night starts at 8.30pm and will go on to 11.30pm.
