Wycombe Jazz Festival

Wycombe Jazz Festival 2022
Wycombe Jazz Festival 2022

Catch22Jams is a live jazz night that started in late 2021 and was created from the lack of live jazz in High Wycombe. Alongside house band MLN Ensemble and local musicians, Catch22jams has been taking High Wycombe on a journey through jazz from yesteryear to more contemporary names like The Ezra Collective, Kamasi Washington, Nubya Garcia and more...

Out of that live night, a radio show on Wycombe Sounds 106.6 FM was born-again, helping the scene to flourish in High Wycombe.

Bringing us up-to-date with that inexorably push for live jazz in High Wycombe, Catch22Jams teams up with Wycombe Arts Centre and HWBico to bring you the #Wycombe Jazz Festival on June 5th from noon-11.30 pm.

Featuring headline acts such as Matt Johnson (keys for Jamiroquai) and Yakul, fresh from sell-out performances at iconic London venues Ronnie Scott’s and the Jazz Cafe. This must-attend event promises to be nothing short of eclectic!

Free for under 16s, this is a must for the High Wycombe community and jazz lovers everywhere on the bank holiday weekend.
