We think Smokey Joe’s Jazz is the coolest of jazz clubs. Created by two professional musicians with a desire to bring affordable top notch live jazz to the area, hosted in a classy American diner, just off the Lower High Street in Cheltenham.
Gigs are monthly, usually on the first Thursday. A big part of the mission of Smokey Joe’s Jazz Club is to put on top class international artists, in a small and intimate venue. We want to give audiences the opportunity to experience the excitement and intensity of live jazz performance in a small, intimate, local venue, which otherwise many people could only experience by travelling to big concert venues in large cities. We feel that the experience of live jazz when you’re only a few metres away from the musicians is something you’ll never forget. You get to see the energy and interaction between musicians, watching the unfolding of amazing improvisations, right up close. We think it’s the best way!
