For all our latest offers to sign up to our mailing list!
Jazz has been in operation at the Hare & Hounds for 23 years and is still a very popular night!
We host some incredibly talented and well respected musicians every Tuesday evening.
While we love to offer free entry, the success & continuation of the jazz is very much reliant on customers supporting the pub itself.
Thank you to everyone who supports the jazz on a regular basis!

George Trebar’s Nighthawks Quartet with Matt Wates
George Trebar studied classical double bass under Catherine Eliot and jazz bass under Simon Woolf. He has recently completed studying for a Masters in Jazz Performance at Trinity Conservatoire, London, for which he also received a Trinity Scholarship. George's latest project is the Nighthawks Quartet with Simon Robinson on piano and fellow Trinity Alumnus Pete Hill on drums playing their own compositions and arrangements of 20th century music and featuring Matt Wates on alto. The focus of this band is as wide as the tastes of the members and includes film soundtracks, hard bop, neo bop and nu jazz. The Nighthawks performed at the 2017 Love Supreme Festival in Glynde.

Andy Williams/Simon Savage Quartet
Andy Williams always knew from an early age that the guitar was his future. Although a largely self-taught musician he studied with the renowned jazz guitarist Dave Cliff who helped put him on the road to a professional playing career. He further honed his guitar skills playing in bars, hotels, cruise ships including the QE2 and enjoyed a nine-year residency at the Pizza on the Park in London. Simon Savage is a former NYJO member who studied at the Leeds College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. He has played many gigs with Mark Bassey, both in a small group setting and as part of the extremely popular Bassey Plays Basie. They are accompanied tonight by Steve Ashworth on organ and Malcolm Mortimore on drums.
