Come “Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans”, as the song goes, to the days of Rent Parties and Storyville Speakeasies – when, on a still night, Buddy Bolden’s fierce cornet blues could be heard clear across the Mississippi.

The marvellous George Huxley’s Hot Five Jazz Band welcomes you to the Ark in Alvechurch on Friday April 29 at 7.30pm. Sadly Mr Bolden will not feature in this fine band’s lineup as
he died in 1931!

Tickets are £10 and include a glass of wine – purchase from The Village Greengrocer, Alvechurch or from Sue Brotherton on 0121 447 7037.
