CHELMSFORD JAZZ CLUB
Over the years, there's been a lot of jazz here in Chelmsford. Big and small dance bands played at the Odeon, local parish halls and other places when everyone went out for quicksteps, fox-trots and waltzes. Then pop and discos arrived and local jazz had to take a back seat.
In 1985 Eastern Arts contacted local bandleader Eggy Ley and a couple of concerts were put on at the Cramphorn Theatre. A few enthusiasts formed a committee and the club was under way
