BBC East Midlands Sports Awards 2008

Nottingham Jazz was delighted to be chosen to perform at tonight’s BBC East Midlands Sports Awards 2008 in Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall. The band’s lineup for this event included two top quality local freelance jazz musicians: Martyn Spencer, who teaches double bass in Nottingham; and Nicky Jaques, one of Nottingham’s finest saxophone teachers.

We were pleased to receive admiring glances off many of the 400 VIPs and sports stars, including local legend Rebecca Adlington (who went on to win the 2008 Sports Personality Award) and TV sports hero John Inverdale, amongst countless other glitterati from civic, sports and business spheres.

We are hopeful that some of our jazz was caught on camera, and eagerly await tomorrow’s East Midlands Today bulletin to see if we’ve made it onto BBC1!
