Southend Jazz Showcase


Our annual celebration of Jazz musicians from across the City of Southend-on-Sea is back!

Zak Barrett, one of Southend's most in-demand musicians, leads our all-star house band as we are joined by a range of local musicians throughout the evening.

Musicians and vocalists of all ages and experience levels will be showcasing their skills at this wonderful, celebratory event and you are more than welcome to get involved!

Musicians interested in joining in can discuss repertoire in advance by emailing
