Neil C Young Quartet
Thursday 19th May 

Steve Tromans Band

This Thursday virtuoso jazz guitarist, Neil C Young, returns to the Silvershine Jazz Club.

Neil C Young has been described as “ of Britain's best-kept jazz secrets”, but he seems to have played across the world. Eric Elias from the US magazine ‘Just Jazz Guitar Magazine’ says “Taking the funk of John Scofield, Jim Hall’s harmonic world and cool of George Benson” Neil C. Young is “full of soul and energy” and that “the arrangements are beautiful”.

He will be playing a selection of tracks from the 'ReWorks' project, retaining the sould but finding new hooks and new energy and life to breath into classic tunes and some unlikely bangers

The full line up is:

ReWorks Pt. 1 is now available on 
Bandcamp for streaming or download
and Pt. 2 is set for a summer release.

Put Friday June 10th in your diary. It will be ten years since the passing of our founder, Andy Hamilton MBE, and we will be holding a celebration of his music and his legacy. The Blue Notes will be joined by Soweto Kinch and Xhosa Cole will be performing with his band.


There will be more happening on the night and we will update you with news as it breaks. The event will be ticket only and we'll post information on how to get tickets when they are available, so keep watching this space!

Thanks For Your Support
We've made our target!

So it's a big thankyou all round. Here's amessage from our organisers, Paul and Kim:

“ Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year! We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the generous donations we received towards our GoFundMe page. With your help, we reached our target in just a few weeks, and can now start planning for our big return in 2021 when restrictions are lifted! We have many exciting plans for the Silvershine in the coming year, including a live recorded album featuring the beautiful voice of Vic Evans, as well as many gigs to help keep jazz alive in Birmingham and give the city’s young jazz musicians a stage to showcase their talent!

Thanks again for all the love and support we’ve received over the years and we look forward to seeing you again at the Silvershine (hopefully) very soon!

Also looking forward to the gig and album launch for Dr Steve Tromans that we've had to postpone twice now due to the pandemic! Can’t wait for this one to happen!

Watch this space… ”
