FarGo Jazz Jam feat Special Guest
Thursday 3 June 2022 (Rescheduled from 2nd June)
We’re celebrating Jazz on 3rd of June (Bank Holiday Friday) with our special guest Matt saxophonist Matt Telfer!
Originally from the West Midlands, saxophonist Matt Telfer moved to London in 2000 to pursue his passion for music and studying with some of the world’s leading saxophonists including Tim Garland, Phill Woods and Bob Mintzer.
Matt very quickly became a prominent figure on the London jazz scene and received sponsorship from Yanagisawa saxophones and Vandoren reeds. This led to a 9 year residency at the Spice of Life in Soho where Matt hosted the Vando Jazz Jam. This prestigious Jam session was run in collaboration with the Vando Jam, Paris and New York. Here Matt worked with musicians such as Jim Snidero, Baptiste Herban, Jim Mullen, Dave O’Higgins, and Nigel Price. With the success of the Vando Jam, Matt went on to host Friday nights at The Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho. Here Matt played with featured guests such as Omar, Rick Braun and Chuck Loeb.
Matt’s own band ‘ Blakey’s Boys’ a tribute to Art Blakey has enjoyed huge success with performances in The EFG London Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scotts and many other jazz clubs in the U.k and E.U.
The brilliant FarGo House Band consists of Aaron Moloney (Drums), Tom Lindsay (Keys), and Wayne Matthews (Bass).
