Getting Gigs

We aim to get a balance of music from the world of jazz – international concerts, national and regional gigs, contemporary jazz, swing, improv, big bands, blues, singers, younger bands and jazz legends.

 

We are currently booking gigs for January 2023 onwards. Most of our booking is curated directly but we do also consider submissions.

If you are interested in performing at our venues please fill out the form to the right. If we cannot help, then there are many other venues in the northern region- these are listed on the Northern Jazz Promoters website: http://www.northernjazzpromoters.org/club-and-promoter-details

JazzLeeds has its main venue at Seven Arts, a 100-seat venue (31 Harrogate Road Chapel Allerton Leeds LS7 3PD). We also run small events and workshops (up to 25 people) at The Barn, Meanwood Valley Urban Farm. We programme concerts in the city centre Leeds Jazz Festival in June each summer and organise the Village Jazz Festival which is part of the annual Chapel Allerton Arts Festival in early September.

Our events are seated and are designed for a listening audience. We have three programming “seasons”: Autumn (September- Christmas), Spring (January-Easter) and Summer (Easter-August). Our fortnightly evening concerts, usually on Thursdays, feature national and international artists. Our Sunday afternoon events are mainly for local or regional bands and they run weekly throughout the year. Our Rush Hour Jazz series is on the first Wednesday each month in the Seven Arts bar featuring visiting guests with the house rhythm section. We also invite support bands to perform at our evening concerts – “taster” slots of 30 minutes prior to the main performance.
