Roger Beaujolais

Thursday, 7th Dec 2023

“an essential player on Britain's jazz scene. His technique … is masterly, and his mature style is so broadly based that he can switch from funk to delicate ballad in an instant, without the least strain.” - The Observer

Acclaimed vibraphonist Roger Beaujolais is celebrating 40 years as a professional musician, with 21 albums and over 250 compositions to his name.

Completely self taught, his versatile musicianship has included jump/jive (The Chevalier Brothers), pop (Fairground Attraction), Latin jazz (The Beaujolais Band) and jazz funk (Vibraphonic). He has also been in demand as a session musician,  with credits as diverse as Robert Plant, Paul Weller, Kirsty MacColl, Morrissey, Roni Size, Alison Limerick and Guy Chambers.

Tonight Roger will be playing his own originals and arrangements, including  material as yet unreleased.
