Be Bold As Brass this Cork Jazz Weekend!


Let’s be honest, the Jazz Festival has become an institution in Cork since it began way back when!

In our usual fashion we have a huge Jazzy line up for you this year kicking off your weekend on Friday October 26th with music from the legendary Ben Waters and rounding off the evening with London based Hyde Park Brass Band followed by a DJ until the late hours.

Cork becomes Europe’s Jazziest city for a weekend and plays host to some of the best in the business. Here in Reardens we love getting our handson big acts to fill our dance floor and this year is no different. On Saturday October 27th We’ll be kicking off at 3pm with The Ben Waters Boogie Band, followed by Reardens regulars The Papa Zitas and finishing off the evening we have the irresistibly toe tapping and always soulful Bad Girls Groove taking to the stage to keep the atmosphere alive into the late hours!

The Sunday of Jazz is notorious for being one of the busiest and best nights of the year in Cork city so it would be a good idea to head out early. Kicking off Sunday’s proceedings at 2.30pm we have The Jazzy Judges – a jazzed up incarnation of the extremely popular Guilty Judges. Ben Waters will be back at 6pm to keep you all dancing and New York Brass Band will be continuing the jazz and blues into the early hours of the bank holiday!

There really is no better way to round off the Jazz weekend than at Reardens Bar for a very jazzy Monday Club. Ease off the hangover with Alan Murphy at 7pm before The Papa Zitas provide a rip-roaring set at 10pm to finish the weekend on a high note.

Whether you’ve been out enjoying yourself all weekend and just need a cure before you head back to work or if you’ve been working all weekend dishing out the drinks there really is no better place to be then at Jazzy Monday Club!
