Olby’s are pleased to announce the partnership of Olby’s Soul Cafe & Margate Jazz Festival to present MARGATE JAZZ WEEKEND 2018. This year we aim to continue on the path of those who have reaffirmed Margates relationship with all things Jazz, particularly following on from what was created by David Mossman, (Vortex Jazz Club), in 2005. When the event was known as ‘The Big Sky Jazz Festival’.

On Friday, Saturday & Sunday 21st, 22nd & 23rd September we bring to you a collection of the finest improvisers from around the world.

Friday 21st – The Bansangu Orchestra 7.00pm

BANSANGU is a fresh contemporary orchestra formed by Paul Booth, Giorgio Serci and Kevin Robinson. It boasts some of the finest London-based musicians, such as Jason Yarde, Alex Wilson, Shanti Paul Jayasinha, Trevor Mires, Barnaby Dickinson, Steve Fishwick, Rod Youngs and many more.

While retaining a traditional Big Band format, Bansangu consciously steers clear of the traditional Big Band Jazz and Swing repertoire, choosing instead to perform self-penned compositions and original arrangements that showcase the rich and diverse musical influences from  Brazilian, African, Cuban, Caribbean, Indian and Middle Eastern cultures, all performed with the intelligent skill and sensitivity fast becoming the trademark of this exciting ensemble.

Show Only Tickets £15.00

Saturday 22nd – Courtney Pine ‘Black Notes From The Deep’ 7.00pm

No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in the British jazz scene over the past thirty years than saxophonist Courtney Pine. The ground breaking, multi- instrumentalist has led a generation of exciting and innovative players who have broadened their styles to take jazz out to a wider audience.

Show Only Tickets £27.50

Sunday 23rd – Omar Puente ‘Best Foot Forward’ 7.00pm

I have performed in both classical and jazz genres to positive audiences worldwide. On leaving Cuba, I was first violin with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, and toured with Buena Vista’s Ruben Gonzales. Since arriving in England in 1997, I have maintained an international

Sunday Jazz Lunch with Special Guests to be announced.
