New series of jazz lunches comes to Plymouth Hoe
A new series of jazz lunch events at The Corinthian Yacht Club on Plymouth Hoe will give people a chance to go straight from a salad into a swinging jive.
The planned events will feature the Carlton Big Band and the first takes place on Sunday, January 27th, from 12-30pm till 2-30pm.
“We will be playing a mix of songs in styles including Swing, Latin and Pop, but it will be mainly Jazz,“ organizer and saxophonist in Carlton Big Band Elaine Keith-Hill said.
“For the event we will be a total of 12 musicians, giving the music an exciting, punchy sound that makes the audience want to dance,” she added.

Last year Elaine Keith-Hill held three monthly lunch time jazz sessions at The Matchroom in Plympton, running from January to March.
However, with the new venue, she is hoping that the monthly jazz lunch events can run through the summer.
“The Corinthian Yacht Club is by the sea and has good views. It has a carvery that also does bar meals, so we are hoping that the location will help draw the crowds needed for us to make it work. I put these events on myself and can only pay the band expenses from the door takings, so we will need at least 50-60 people coming through the doors each time” she said.
Apart from organizing the events and playing saxophone, Elaine Keith-Hill will also be featuring on vocals for the first event. In February and March, the band will be joined by a male vocalist, for part of their set, who will sing songs in the vein of Frank Sinatra.
The nod to ‘Old Blue Eyes’ is not the only part of the band’s performance that might make the audience think of days gone by.
“I think older people attending will feel transported back to their youth, when dances with bands playing live music were very much a part of what you did when you went out. And we hope to see as many people as possible take to the dance floor. The music and clothes of those times has seen a recent resurgence, and we have some swing dancers coming along to the first event,” Elaine Keith-Hill said.
She added that the coming gig was extra special to her.
“It is the first since I got married to my husband Mike recently, and now he plays trumpet in the band,” she said.
