A reminder to all Jazz-lovers that Dundee-based band Havana Swing will be on Bute this weekend with a concert at the Victoria Hotel on Sunday, February 2.

Havana Swing are inspired by the music of the Hot Club de Paris, Django Reinhardt’s fabulous quintet of the pre and post war jazz scene in the French capital, and Havana have gone to great lengths to emulate the sound and feel of this timeless music. In addition, the band provides their own compositions, which creates the opportunity to play original material in that inimitable jazz style so popular with jazz audiences throughout the world.

Tickets cost £10 from the Victoria Hotel (01700 500016) and from Brechin’s on Bridgend Street (01700) 502922.

The concert starts at 2.30pm - make a note in your diaries!
