Strong double bill for underground club

On the Birmingham jazz scene, the students are very good at doing it for themselves, and they start doing that very early on.

Lee Griffiths is a first-year student at Birmingham Conservatoire and is flexing his promotional muscle by putting on a gig on Wednesday. It features two bands led by fellow Conservatoire students.

The gig is at the Churchills Snooker Club on Stephenson Street and comprises a double-bill of the Chris Young Sextet and the Lottie Hodgson Quintet. Chris is a lively alto saxophonist and his band has previously played the Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival. Lottie Hodgson is a vibrant vocalist and does good things in interaction with Young who is also a vital part of her band.

The gig is at 9pm, and all are welcome.
