For hobbyists and performing female musicians, singers, songwriters and producers. Providing networking, training, support and musical expression in a collegial environment and giving women the confidence to take hold and develop their musical destiny
Observing the development and progress of the Cafemnee women for me is brilliant! The reinvestment in music after years of leaving it behind for studies, work, family, etc is tremendous! The stories of surmounting hurdles in their music – exceptional! So I have given the opportunity to six women to grace the ‘Not Just Jazz 5‘ stage, my yearly show, next week.
As I write, each is busily preparing for their debut. Opening the Not Just Jazz 5 show on Friday 26th July is Hillary, Janice, Pat, Sheryl (four Sax players) have formed a Saxophone Quartet for the night and will be accompanied by Carlene on Djembi (Drums). Also on the night we will hear the wonderful voice of Joanne, a singer, who has is overcoming some serious health challenges to return to her music. I will also be performing with my Band.
This year the Show has moved out of the City Centre to make it easier to find parking and avoid the notorious road works in Birmingham. Not Just Jazz 5 will be at Stockland Green Methodist Church, Slade Road, Erdington, B23 7JH on Friday 26th July, 7.30pm. Proceeds will be going towards two Charites ‘SHAPE’ a women’s refuge and ‘Cafe on the Green’ who provide meals for people on low or no income.
