About Us

The Jazz Club


The aim of the club is to provide a venue for quality jazz provided by properly supported and paid musicians. There are very few of these in the North Devon area.

Jazz is a very broad church, it is not just Acker Bilk or weird, unmelodic noise. It can be soft and sensual or stirring and dramatic and everything in between. Something for everyone.

The club meets on the last Friday of every month, in the upstairs function room of the George Hotel in South Molton.  But do check, as very occasionally the last Friday is not available. The best way to make sure you don't get caught out is to sign up for the monthly email newsletter. This gives details of the bands appearing together with local jazz related news . Your email address is not given to anyone and you receive nothing but the one newsletter per month.

The hotel is licenced until midnight.

And Further . . .


There will be a different band each month, playing from about 8.30 pm until 11.  We will feature a mix of styles, with something for everyone.  Look at Future Events to see who is playing this month.

All musicians who perform for the club will be paid. This is NOT a talent contest, free mike night, or come and have a go type operation.

Please bear in mind that the line-up of bands may vary due to illness, unforseen circumstances and the unavailability of individual members. Sometimes bands may cancel at very short notice and substitutes have to be found. Likewise, ticket prices may vary. We will post any changes here.



Tickets cost £10 at the door on the night or in advance.  To purchase in advance, either send a cheque and stamped, self-addressed envelope to SMJC 21 Broad Close, North Molton, Devon, EX36 3JD or pay in cash or cheque at the George Hotel.

Cheques payable to South Molton Jazz Club, please.
