Speakeasy Jazz Club returns with its autumn programme next month.

Jack Challoner, a vocalist and pianist, will be performing at the club’s meeting at the end of September.

Club organiser Kate Sheridan said: “Jack has a smooth and soulful voice that soars and glides through the jazz standards from the Great American Songbook.

“He can swing like Satchmo, Be-bop like Charlie Parker and pull on your heart strings like Billie Holiday.

“Jack has entertained at festivals and clubs nationwide, fronting many bands such as Avellana and the Gerald Fitzella Quartet.”

His quintet will be performing at Clarence House, in Portishead High Street, on September 28.

The show will get underway at 8.30pm and doors open one hour beforehand.

Tickets, priced £12, can be bought on the door or, alternatively, reserved by contacting Kate on 01275 848391 or at katespeakeasy@hotmail.co.uk
