Back for their 3rd Valentine's Night Special at Monkton Barn, we once again welcomed the brilliant Some Kinda Wonderful - The Music of Stevie Wonder. They truly cannot put a foot wrong - and had even the most reluctant movers up and dancing by the end of the night!
My Cherie Amour could not be more appropriate for our Valentine's Night Special featuring Some Kinda Wonderful - The Music of Stevie Wonder. Returning for their 3rd performance, they really are a crowd-pleaser with everyone up dancing by the end!
It was an absolute joy to host such highly regarded musicians at our November event. Fresh from a performance at London's Ronnie Scotts, we were treated to an evening of soulful delights - what's not to love!
WHAT A NIGHT! It was a huge honour to host such a talented group of performers here at Monkton Barn. Paul Jones - former lead singer with 60s pop legends Manfred Mann - was magnificent, whilst accompanied by the rousing and triumphant sound of The Denny Illet Big Band. Just brilliant!
What a thrill it was to welcome back Moscow Drug Club! Once again they had us captivated with their spectacular musicianship and a rousing collection of songs, including this beautiful version of Leonard Cohen's 'Dance me to the end of love'.

It was a complete delight to welcome back the talented collective that is 'Some Kinda Wonderful' - and even more so for our first Jazz Experience since February 2020. And what a way to kick off! With a fabulous selection of Stevie Wonder classics; from stunning soulful ballads, through to his toe-tapping funky numbers. We can't wait to have them back again!

It was a complete joy to welcome this amazing tribute show to the Jazz Experience in February 2020. Featuring an array of Stevie Wonder classics, it will come as no surprise that the audience were up singing and dancing just a few songs in!
Joined by the talented Simon Spillett Quartet, Jo showcased her velvet-esque vocals to much praise from our guests!
Such a pleasure to welcome this brilliant group to the Jazz Experience...a curious musical place where elements of Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, French Musette and Storytelling meet!
Our very first Jazz Experience featured the talents of saxophonist Karen Sharp & renowned vocalist, Tina May.
