October 25th should have been a great celebration of 30 years of jazz in Albrighton and 5 years at the Social Club....all this was cancelled due to Covid 19 and any thought of continuing at the club in the future was lost when the premises were sold and the last day of trading announced as November 29th 2020.

This will be a sad day for not only Jazz Club 90 but also the people of Albrighton and surrounding areas as it was a very popular venue for meetings, sliming clubs, wrestling and many other events with something taking place every day.

 

The response we had after arranging an anniversary gig at the Social Club to celebrate 25 years of jazz in Albrighton (on October 25th 2015) made us reconsider our decision not to try to set up elsewhere after the withdrawal by the brewery of funding for the jazz at the Harp.

The Social Club is where we have made the new "home" of Jazz Club 90.

Situated in Cross Road, just up from the High Street, it has an excellent function room (no pillar to block the view!), the bar is in the room and club prices for the drinks.

December 2019.....it is now over 4 years since we left the Harp and the consensus is that the brewery did us a favour when they withdrew their support.....the Social Club, especially the chairman Robin Giles and steward Peter Jordon and his staff, could not be be more supportive and also appreciative of the business we bring in to them.

October 2020 will be our 30th anniversary of jazz in Albrighton and the 5th of jazz at at the Social Club.

The bands are on a portable stage on the dance floor to create a slightly more "intimate" atmosphere than would be the case if they were on the full stage.

  

     The Club

The interest after the first three gigs made up our minds to  make the Social Club a twice a month venue and we hoped to book many of the bands we have had in the past....this has now become every Sunday as more bands want to play for us than twice a month gigs allow.

In order not to be reliant on "sponsorship" by a brewery we charge 6.00 admission, run the usual raffle and Marie sells her rolls with the blessing of the club chairman, Robin Giles.
