Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Cat Skellington

Nikki IlesCat Skellington is a gypsy jazz quartet formed of Alan Boyes (rhythm guitar) Alice Lee (vocals) Jez Gray (double bass) and Hugo Boswell (lead guitar).

 

They live and gig on the Isle of Wight although on rare occasions they might be found across the water.

 

Influenced mostly by the great French gypsy guitar player Django Reinhardt the music they play is largely from the swing era of the 1920s - 40s. It is a style of music with an irresistible beat and a boundless energy known to induce toe tapping of extreme vivacity.

Watch them play.
