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!

Chris Coull Quartet
Chris Coull first heard a Miles Davis record when he was 17and decided that he wanted to play like him. But, for several years he only played trumpet as a side-line. He eventually went to the Leeds college of music and did a two year course there before moving abroad. 18 years ago he eventually ended up in the middle east and Quatar where he started the Doho Jazz Company. This gave him a host of experience of setting up bandsas well as playing in them, He moved back to Hove about 5 years ago and has been very active in the local music scene since then. His main influences have been Kenny Dorham, Clifford Brown, Woody Shaw, Freddie Hubbard, and Miles of course. He is acompanied tonight by Simon Robinson on piano, Paul Whitten on bass and Bobby Worth on drums.
