Organisations currently playing and promoting Jazz in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.


The Apollo Big BandThe Apollo Big Band

The Apollo Big Band, which is based in Stockcross, Newbury, is a charitable, non profit making society formed in January 2001 by George Wicks and Nigel Revler.

The objectives of the band are to promote interest and participation in music from the big band era and to support local community organisations.

The band rehearses on Thursday evenings in Stockcross Village Hall from 20:00 to 22:00. The band regularly invites deputies to join both rehearsal sessions and sometimes gigs. Contact the band if you would like to go along to play, or if you would like to hear the type of music they perform.

Hungerford Jazz Forum

Hungerford Jazz Forum gives players and singers of all levels the opportunity to perform for a live audience in a friendly environment.

Beginning and intermediate players are welcome as we recognise that "doing it for real" is the best experience there is. Woodshedding is essential but it's a waste of time if you don't get up and blow!

Hungerford Jazz Forum is pleased to recognise the support from a wide range of musician and we are proud that we also have support from young musicians who are still at school.
