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.

Urban Nomads

Urban Nomads

The Urban Nomads are a new world music/jazz project on the Isle of Wight featuring a diverse selection of leading musicians such as Gary Plumley (saxes/flutes), David Hences (violin), Mark Chettle (keyboards), JC Grimshaw (guitar), Jez Gray (bass) and Ken Black (drums) playing their own compositions. From a wide range of backgrounds including funk, jazz, gypsy jazz and classical, each musician brings a different approach to the material, and contributes towards a fascinating collaboration.
