Pershore Jazz Club in the Function Room, Pershore Town Football Club – TJ Johnson Band featuring Alex Clarke
TJ Johnson is widely considered to be one of the UK’s most charismatic and highly revered jazz & blues singers. TJ returns to Pershore using the UK’s top jazz musicians in his band. TJ has sold out Ronnie Scott’s over ten times, and in 2018, was the proud recipient of the Best Blues Singer award at the Boisdale Music Awards, presented by Jools Holland.
TJ plays an extraordinary blend of music that transcends the boundaries of jazz, blues, soul, country and gospel and is influenced by some of the greats such as Ray Charles, Dr John, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash, BB King, Nina Simone, Alberta Hunter, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Witherspoon and many more.
TJ’s long awaited return visit will feature the talents of Alex Clarke (BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year finalist 2020 & winner of British Jazz Awards ‘Rising Star’ category 2019).
Alex made her first public appearance at the Pershore Jazz Festival and since has gone from strength to strength making many performances around the country and receiving well deserved acclaim. Her fresh approach to jazz, versatility and of course her youthful talent make her so popular with the jazz audiences.
The jazz starts at 8.00pm and doors open at 7.00pm. Tickets are £10.00 include raffle tickets.
