We love the Festival of Chichester.  Jazz Smugglers have become one of the famous FESTIVAL BANDS in SUSSEX. The JAZZ SMUGGLERS EVENTS are all different. Sometimes the music is full of Gershwin and Cole Porter. At other times we are playing songs loved by Jazz Club patrons.

We play mainly in CHICHESTER, WEST SUSSEX, which is close to BOGNOR for LIVE JAZZ, but we also work as a live JAZZ BAND in WORTHING, and as a JAZZ BAND in PORTSMOUTH,  There are not many JAZZ BANDS IN CHICHESTER, there are one or two live BANDS IN BOGNOR, more BANDS IN WORTHING and even more BANDS IN PORTSMOUTH.

There are many JAZZ BANDS IN EAST SUSSEX but far fewer JAZZ BANDS IN WEST SUSSEX. If you want soft romantic music for WEDDING RECEPTIONS SUSSEX. or a LIVE JAZZ TRIO at your WEDDING or PRIVATE PARTY as background music book us please.

A BETTER KIND OF JAZZ WORKSHOP IN SUSSEX


Play as a group, harmonies, exchanges, question and answer, band experience


THE SMUGGLERS JAZZ WORKSHOP IS DIFFERENT - AND SOME SAY IT IS MUCH BETTER


In everyday jazz workshops each person does a solo in turn.


With the Smugglers Jazz Workshop we go the next stage of  all playing together as a band.   


We create intros, and codas as we play. We do new songs most evenings.


With Jazz Smugglers you   develop your playing skills, your jazz chords, your musical skills and your techniques of playing with others.


With Jazz Smugglers, you play blues, jazz swing, jazz standards, all the popular jazz music


AN EXAMPLE

Everyone feels that they have problems with playing in less popular keys. So we did Watermelon Man in F. Then we did it weekly in a new key for 30 minutes a time, covering all 12 keys. In each one we found the Lydian, played the blues scales and alt scales.

We’ll do the same thing with Autumn Leaves next., more complex minor 11 V 1. That is what we do
