Jazz lovers are in for treat this week as the Jazz Mansion show returns to Morecambe.

The Jazz Mansion 6 show is making its comeback to the Parisian Bar at the Winter Gardens on Marine Road Central on Friday July 1. The jazz night began last autumn and DJ organiser Steve Middlesbrough said it is becoming more popular on the resort’s entertainment calendar.

The jazz and supper night has been running for three months this year and combines an eclectic mix of cool jazz, swing and fusion tracks with monthly bands and a hot supper.

This month’s artists include Mick Dyer and friends and the new talented young Lancaster jazzers, Wongfish.

Steve said: “For those of you who haven’t managed to attend the initial shows, why not try the Jazz Mansion for a different type of Morecambe night out this week.”

Advance tickets are £10 to pay on the door, show times are 8pm til late. For tickets call kalimbaevents on 01524 424303.
