A jazz player is celebrating over 45 years in the music business by opening a new club at the Beaufort Hunt in Chipping Sodbury.  

Mike Slade, 83, who plays the double bass is showing no signs of slowing down. He already runs the weekly Tuesday jazz night at the New Inn in Westerleigh.

Mike, who is part of the Sodbury Jazz Club, says if the night is successful following its launch last month, the club will run on the second Thursday each month. 

Mike said ‘We really enjoy playing the music and we hope that holding these regular events will help others to enjoy listening to it, as much as we enjoy playing it. Everyone is welcome to attend, and entry to the evening is free’.
