INFO FOR ARTISTS

Simon Brown is responsible for booking artists for the club, and can be contacted by email, or by calling 01603 259799.

Booking for 2019's monthly Tuesday night programme is now closed. We'll be considering artists for 2020's programme in October / November and once we've confirmed that the venue management are happy for us to remain there.


We welcome jazz artists (soloists or ensembles) from most jazz disciplines to perform at the club. Financial factors tend to limit us to ensembles of up to four or five performers, but we're open to suggestions!

If you're new to the club, please be prepared to send us CD or DVD examples of your work, or provide links to audio or video performances. Links to your website and / or good-quality footage of your performances can be launched from our gig listings and will really help us to promote your night.

If your appearance at Norwich Jazz Club is part of a tour, do please send us any promotional flyers that may be available; and of course we'll be happy to sell your CDs on your behalf during the gig.
