In 2013 Fleur formed Reading's first Jazz Singers' Night; a monthly gig where singers are welcome to come along and sing one or two numbers with the house band. It provides a safe space for singers to perform to a friendly, supportive audience with a live jazz trio, gaining invaulable performing experience - skills that can only be learnt by getting up on stage.
Over the years the event has gone from strength to strength and grown into a community of like minded singers, musicians and music lovers. The evening has a relaxed atmosphere, and gives both those who are new to singing/jazz, and those who are more experienced a chance to perform with quality musicians in a supportive, safe and no pressure environment.
The evening runs from 9-11pm on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Global Cafe in Reading (35-39 London St, Reading RG1 4PS. Phone: 0118 958 3555). It is completely free and open to everyone. Since the COVID pandemic began, we have moved Jazz Singers' Nights online via Zoom. Same time each month, but the earlier time of 8pm. Please email Fleur for Zoom details and signing up to sing.
