Jazz Garden Gigs start in Eastbourne

The first of this summer's Jazz Garden Gigs at The Fishermen's Club, Eastbourne, takes place on Sunday, July 21 at 3pm, when the musicians will be vocalist Sara Oschlag, Matt Wall (guitar) and Arnie Somegyi (double bass). Sax/flute maestro and Garden Gig host Andy Panayi will feature as a guest.

Spokeswoman Annette Keen said: “Danish jazz singer Sara Oschlag has made a name for herself as a leader and featured guest in bands throughout the UK and Europe. An intelligent interpreter of songs in the jazz tradition, she has been hailed as a musician's singer due to her wonderful way of using dynamics, texture and rhythm.

"Her honest stage presence, expressive voice and effortless sense of swing have made her a firm favourite with musicians and the jazz audience. Sara is increasingly in demand at jazz festivals throughout the UK and Europe and has just released a new album Yeah! which has received enthusiastic four-star reviews.

“Equally at home in front of a big band or, as today, the impressive backline of Arnie Somegyi and Matt Wall, Sara's interpretations of jazz standards and the American songbook never fail to impress.”

“The Fishermen's will be running a full bar throughout the gig and the music will go ahead regardless of the weather. If it looks like rain everything will be transferred inside to the downstairs room at the Club.”

The venue is the Fishermen's Club, Royal Parade, BN22 7AA. The music starts at 3pm, finishing at around 5.30pm.

Entry is free, but donations are requested please to pay for your entertainment and the musicians’ fees.
