Julius Fu Quartet - 16th August

Jules Fu band


If you've been to the Silvershine Jazz Club then you've probably seen Julius Fu, either working the PA or playing bass with The Blue Notes. This Thursday Jules is reuniting with a couple of musicians he played with back in the 1970s, Chantal Stewart and Julyan Richardson.

  • Guitarist, Chantal Stewart, who now resides in France toured for three years with the black American R&B singer Lisa Doby based in Alsace, France.
    Influenced by Joe Pass, Django and Jimi Hendrix, he was and is active in the Blues, Jazz and Soul music scene of Strasbourg for the last thirty years.
  • Julyan Richardson plays Fender Rhodes and lives in Southampton, playing solo gigs around the Southampton area. He plays with The Southampton Jazz Society Big Band and featured at Bracknell Jazz festival.
    He has also played sessions with Pete Leigh and the Union blues band featured at the Bentworth Blues Festival.
  • On drums is Tony Caldicott, a stalwart of the West Midlands Jazz scene, who Jules plays with at the Trumpet, Bilston on a regular basis.

A magical mix of musical styles from different places
& a first for the Silvershine Jazz Club !


a photograph by Paul Hassell

Surfing the internet I came across this wonderful photograph ov Vic Evans, the Blue Notes vocalist. It's a truly wonderful shot that truly captures the Vic we know and love, and looks more like a photo-realist drawing than a photograph - A work of art!

The photographer, Paul Hassell, emailed us the photograph, kindly giving us permission to upload it to our website. You can see more of Paul’s work on his site at
