Cork Guinness Jazz Festival - Style

Ahhh, it has come around again. Much like a child at Christmas, you're not a Corkonian if the CorkGusiness Jazz weekend doesn't put a tingle in your feet. 

Pints of Guinness, smooth jazz and the Monday off work (well for most of us) - what's not to love! Any BodyChefer's who haven't a NOTION on where to head this weekend, we've put together our top recommendations on where to go get jazzy, style. 

1) Booka Brass Band. 

Where? Cork Opera House
When? Saturday, 28th @ 7:00pm & 11:30pm

We think these guys are a must as even the most extreme Jazz novice will enjoy a night listening to them. Fresh & energetic they are becoming hugely successful, even having played a set at this years Electric Picnic. 

2) Sue Rynhart Trio

Where? The Triskel
When? Sunday, 29th @ 8pm

Not to mention the amazing venue that is the Triskel Churchyard, Sue Rynhart is a fantastic volcalist and is becoming a favourite among contempory jazz lovers . This is a must if you're looking for some laid back Jazz to bring the weekends festivities to a close.

3) Hit the Streets. 

Where? Everywhere! 
When? Whenever! 

There are so many hidden gems lying around Cork City over the weekend that you do not need a ticket to. Wander into the many bars lining Oliver Plunket street, the Roundry on Castle Street or Deep South and you're sure to find a gem over the course of the weekend. Bonus!! There is a free open air concert kicking things off tonight at 6pm outside the Opera House featuring Brian Deady and Paddy Casey. 


While we too at HQ will also be enjoying the Jazz festivities - we will be open as normal on the Bank Holiday! So if you want to do your sore feet and weary soul a favour after the buzy weekend of jazzing (a popular Cork saying for heavy drinking, dancing and eating), get your orders in to us by 10am Sunday to have your healthy, feel good food sorted for next week!  

Much love BodyChefer's and Happy Jazzing,
We’ll hopefully catch you on the D-floor.
