Set the scene for the Watford Jazz Junction

The Watford Jazz Junction is a community interest group putting on a live music festival for Watford. 2021 will be our second year of not putting on a festival because of covid.

We’re not for profit; and depend on sales, grants and donations.

To keep the music alive,  we recorded a stellar closed-door set of our twice cancelled headliner Emma Smith and her Quartet in April - ready for broadcast in May when our festival should have been running. You helped us raise an amazing £1000 to do that!!!


We’re also putting on 2 live audience concerts on 30 October 2021 (with the fabulous Chris Ingham Quartet ) and 12 February 2022 (with the wonderful  Tony Kofi Quintet ) - a couple more of the amazing acts we were unable to put on due to covid restrictions in May 2021.

If you’ve seen the video of Emma and want to donate or just want to help us hang in there for another 12 months please donate:

Buy the musicians a drink for £5!
Buy the sound guys pizza for £10!

Buy a 2022 all access festival pass for £50!
Buy festival funder bragging rights and become a jazz god benefactor for £100!

Whatever you can spare will be helping us to do something special and amazing.

Thank you for helping us to share the jazz love.
