Jazz Bands in Yorkshire

Although Yorkshire isn’t known for producing world-famous jazz musicians, there is a burgeoning young jazz scene in the region and it has produced some very famous musicians in other genres.

Some of the most famous musicians to come from Yorkshire include David Coverdale, the lead vocalist of Deep Purple and Whitesnake; the Arctic Monkeys; Melanie Brown, singer with the Spice Girls and legendary crooner Tony Christie. In recent decades, one of the most famous bands to come out of Yorkshire — Hull, in fact — were The Beautiful South, whose popular appeal came from their blend of musical styles, from rock to jazz.

The band first formed at the end of the 1980s, but they came to prominence mainly in the 1990s. The band had a succession of female vocalists, initially Briana Corrigan who sang on songs such as A Little Time, who was succeeded by Jacqui Abbott, who featured on the hits Rotterdam, Perfect 10 and Don’t Marry Her. After Abbott left, Alison Wheeler performed with the band until they disbanded in 2007 due to musical differences.

The success of the Hull-based band has spawned a number of new musicians who have discovered the roots of their music, with the jazz scene being particularly popular in Yorkshire today. If you’re looking for local jazz bands, why not give us a call? We’re available on 01572 756386.
