Grand Re-opening

Weds 28th July 2021 | 8.15pm | £5

Please note earlier start time of 8.15.

Stuart MacDonald

Scarborough Jazz Club re-opens with a weekly programme of live music. And who better to help us celebrate this long awaited day than saxophonist Stuart MacDonald.

Stuart is a consummate musician who gets the most out of every tune whether it’s a sensitive ballad or a foot stomping blues. He will of course be accompanied by our very own MG3 - Mike Gordon on keyboard, Bob Walker on bass and Tom Townsend on drums.

Tonight we also have a support act, Purple Cheesecake, a jazz funk group of Scarborough-based students formed in 2016.

The club now has improved ventilation and is taking all the necessary measures to make the venue safe and comfortable.

Doors open 8.00, music starts at the earlier time of 8.15.

What artists say about us...


We absolutely loved it on Wednesday. The club is brilliant. The audience were so lovely as always. Bob did a superb job on the sound too. I always love performing at the club. It was a real pleasure to bring our Pannonica project and air out the Monk tunes.

Big thanks again for having us back.


The fabulous guitarist Jamie Taylor played at Scarborough jazz recently. It was a great night and after the gig Jamie send this message:

"I really mean it when it tell people how much I look forward to my visits to Scarborough. You are right to be so proud of what you’ve achieved with the club and festival; it’s really extraordinary. I always love playing with the trio as well."
