Schmazz brings excellent local, national and sometimes international, musicians, to play original jazz – and some jazz related hybrid music – on Tyneside.


We provide a friendly ‘club’ atmosphere and have put on some wonderful gigs over the years – we are in the process of adding information to this new website about gigs we’ve put on in the past.

Two-for-one offer

Bring someone who’s not been to a schmazz gig before, and if they sign up on our email list you’ll get 2 tickets for the price of one!


Most of our gigs are at The Cluny in Ouseburn Valley and they are usually on the last Tuesday of each month (though there are occasional variations to this) Schmazz was established in 1999 by Keith Morris, who died in 2005.

There’s more information about Keith and tributes to him here.
