JBGB Events


After 10+ years of developing JBGB Events, which with your support has become a major force on the London Jazz Scene, it's time to embrace a new work plan
From January 2024, I become part of the Pizza Express Live Jazz Management team, creating, and presenting concerts at their Dean Street, Holborn, and Chelsea venues.
This development allows me to spend more time on building the best concerts for you, with the Pizza Express team handling the important administrative, payment, VAT, performing rights etc which with over 80 JBGB Events concerts in 2023 had become a significant burden on our limited resources.
Our focus will be on developing Big Band Sunday lunches with Gareth Lockrane, Simon Spillett , Nikki Iles, NYJO, Tom Smith and so many more plus, the major artists including Claire Martin, Clare Teal, Elaine Delmar, Derek Nash, Alan Barnes, Mark Nightingale et all, not overlooking our successful Christmas party Jazz Lunchtimes in December.
We retain our established JBGB Events brand and hope you will continue to support our major live music plans
Our successful relationships with the jazz cabaret venue Crazy Coqs will continue with several concerts
In thanking you for your support over many years we hope you will find many concert in 2024 and hopefully beyond from us that you will come to and enjoy.

John Billett

"Music, as a background to something else, is no music. Performing with recorded backing tracks is no performance. Great music is always live. Listen to music in the foreground.

Brilliant music, superbly performed by outstanding musicians, and heard without distraction is a recipe for entertainment, inspiration and complete enjoyment. And the great thing about improvised music is its different every time."

"Live music is so exciting, you never know what's going to happen"
