Doors open at 7.15pm
Dan Mar-Molinero Jazz Orchestra

Southampton jazz musicians unite in a special concert to showcase the exceptional talent, both young and established, that hails from the city. The evening will feature three groups from the city with many familiar faces from the local jazz scene on show. Alongside celebrating Southampton jazz, the concert will also raise money for charity as all the performers are donating their fee to good causes including supporting Southampton youth jazz groups and the Ukrainian appeal. Expect a night of high quality music straight from the SO postcode!
