With big news comes a big party, Getintothis’ Matthew Wood has the low down on ParrJazz’s move back to Parr Street.
Following a successful stint at Hope Street’s unique bar, Frederiks, Liverpool’s best-established jazz night ParrJazz makes a return to Parr Street’s Studio 2, reigniting an old flame for new beginnings.
To welcome the return, Studio 2 will be hosting a monster launch party with special musical guests, all vinyl-spinning DJ’s and free scran and booze to those in attendance.
Through the years, ParrJazz has consistently hosted world-renowned jazz talent free of charge every Tuesday. Past guests include Snarky Puppy, Benn Clatworthy and Victor Brox who is known to have jammed with Jimi Hendrix in his time, plus a royal host of upcoming youngsters and local veterans.
The launch party will continue in equally commendable fashion on June 5 and will feature saxophonist Chris Rand, a major figure in the world of jazz and blues having toured and recorded with the likes of Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, acclaimed session-soloist Elliott Randall and members of Ian Dury & The Blockheads.
Entrance to the event is free.
