At the Silvershine Jazz Club we start the New Year with the wonderful voice of singer, Shaine Dorsey, who will be performing with her wonderful backing band. Daughter of popular West Midlands based Jazz & Big Band Swing Singer, the late Warren Dorsey, Shaine was always a very popular performer when she joined in on Andy Hamilton's afternoon gigs at the Drum and the Symphony Hall (above).

Her band will feature Shaine’s regular piano player Andy Peate as well as the excellent Malcolm Gibbons on guitar.

Gone Too Soon - James Renford

James Renford & Fred Webb

At the Silvershine Jazz Club we were deeply saddened and more than a little surprised to hear of the death of saxophonist James Renford on January 9th. Seen here playing with Fred Webb and the Blue Notes on one of Andy Hamilton’s Jam Night's, James also played the club in his own right, using the occasion to showcase a lot of local talent.


As well as being a prodigiously talented musician James was one of the good guys. Tributes have been rolling in from across the music industry, incuding Steel Pulse, Roy Hemmings and the Edwin Starr website.

Blue Notes Jam Night
 17th Jan



It’s Vic and the boys this coming Thursday. It will be a Jam Night, so bring you’re instrument if you’ve got one. I’ll announce the full line-up when I get it...

Bon Accord


Bon Accord is a truly wonderful Gypsy Jazz outfit, that plays toe-tappingly sweet music inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Quintet of the Hot Club of France.


The difference is that whilst most Gypsy Jazz bands today consist entirely of stringed instruments. Django, however, also recorded with accordionist Gus Viseur and clarinettist Hubert Rostaing. Bon Accord follows this lead with a line-up of accordion, clarinet, guitar and double bass, playing both well-known and more contemporary Gypsy Jazz numbers plus French and Latin pieces.

Come, listen and let the
music warm the cockles of your heart!

Henry Newman Band - 31st Jan


Henry Newman always brings a cracking little band to Bearwood Corks and often drops a few surprises into the line up.
