[EVENT] ‘The Pure Sessions’ Weekly Monday Jazz sessions

the pure sessionsAndy and Percy introduce:  The Pure Sessions 

Every Monday from 7.30 to 9pm

The 28th of September saw two of our talented team members Trumpeter/bassist Percy Pursglove and drummer Andrew Bain, move their weekly Monday Jazz session (formerly at Yorks) to a sparkly new venue: Purecraft Bar & Kitchen based in Waterloo St, Birmingham.

Percy and Andy are two of the best on the jazz scene in Brum (if you did’nt know already) and they’re being joined by some equally talented guests in the next few sessions to come, so it’s worth a shot getting down to at least one of them!
