Sefrial will be setting the stage for our August edition of Jazz at the wonderful Lakota Gardens. Set under a beautiful stretch tent, this Covid-Secure venue offers a safe way to enjoy live music in a socially distanced setting and we’ve teamed up to bring you the best of Bristol’s jazz and blues scene.

“Sefrial are sugar-gold-diamond-encrusted magic” BBC Introducing With influences as diverse as John Zorn, Medeski Martin and Wood, and Tin Hat, Sefrial is the brain-child of rising star Sophie Stockham.A saxophone-heavy front line featuring the energy and lyricism of Sophie’s alto, complemented by the unmistakeable sound and brilliance of Jake McMurchie on tenor, groove and invention is provided by the chief composer Matt Brown on drums, under-pinned by the warm sound of Greg Cordez on bass. The band is completed by the distinctive Joe Wilkins on guitar, who blends the blues and energy of Jimi Hendrix with the subtlety of Bill Frisell or Marc Ribot.Expect distinctive original compositions that owe as much to alt-rock and americana as jazz.

Please note that you only need to purchase one ticket for the show to book a table and a table can sit up to 6 people. Therefore if you can get 6 people together a £60 ticket would only cost £10 each.
