The Waterworks Jazz club operates within the premises of the BUSC
- the Birmingham United Service Club, on Gough Street, just across the road from the Alexandra Theatre and just 200 yards from The Mailbox.
Cheer yourself up with Ellingtonia on Thursday evening at Burton Jazz (0121 308 7360 for more details); or jazz by candlelight with the Garry Allcock Quartet and guests, also on Thursday, at the BUSC
Conference Centre in Gough Street (musicians encouraged to sit in).
Finally, back to the drums and don't miss Garry Allcock's Jazz By Candlelight sessions, every Thursday at the BUSC
in Gough Street, Birmingham.
On Thursday, together with singer Tina Law and his quartet, Gary kicks off a regular Jazz By Candlelight session at the BUSC Banqueting and Conference Centre in Gough Street (which, if my geography is average, is not far from the Mailbox).
Elsewhere, T J Johnson's Bourbon Kick have a busy weekend, playing the Waterworks Club, which, like Jazz By Candlelight, meets at the BUSC in Gough St, on Saturday, and Halesowen Cricket Club in Dog Kennel Lane on Sunday, while Brian Mellor and his Jazz Ramblers ramble out to The Bell Inn in Whittington on Monday evening.
Saturday offers the Louisiana Joymakers, courtesy of Jazz At The Waterworks, which now operates out of Birmingham United Services Club (BUSC) in Gough Street.
Also at the BUSC, guaranteeing a swinging Sunday lunchtime, is the Garry Allcock 'All Stars' Big Band, playing the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman et al.
More commonly known as the Waterworks Jazz Club's regular haunt, BUSC
is now hosting a series of dates by global music promoters World Unlimited, seeming set to replace The Irish Club in their scheme of things.
