The Ipswich Jazz and Blues return to Venue16 for another amazing afternoon of entertainment!


The Ipswich Jazz and Blues live at Venue16.

For tickets and more information about Ipswich Jazz and Blues Club please visit their website.

We are absolutely delighted to present the legendary jazz-funk band Shakatak. This will be their first show in Ipswich for several years and will see them performing all their iconic hits and most popular album tracks.

They are best known for 1980s classics like Night Birds, Easier Said Than Done, Down On The Street, Dark Is The Night and Streetwalkin’.

Shakatak’s classic line-up of Jill Saward, Bill Sharpe, Roger Odell and George Anderson are in much-demand throughout the world and this gig will be an early Christmas present for us all to cherish for years to come.

“This music still glows as brightly as that first hearing…Shakatak aren’t just a band, they were the soundtrack to our lives”
RONNIE SCOTT’S House Magazine (UK)

“A wild diversity seldom found anymore… tons of rhythmic and stylistic variety…slamming”
JAZZIZ Magazine (USA)
