Darlington New Orleans Jazz

Keeping Jazz Live in Darlington since 1996


Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club was founded over 20 years ago and we’re proud that it’s going from strength to strength.

Our growing audience means more revenue – which means we can plough it back and invest in the best bands on the UK jazz circuit; attract international guests; and put on even more gigs. Once a month simply isn’t enough for us now – in 2019 we’re showcasing a record 17 bands over the year.

Although our roots are firmly in the classic New Orleans style, we’re proud to offer a diverse mix of all types of jazz (and blues), and feature some of the hottest young bands around. And of course we’re always delighted to welcome old friends back on stage whenever we can.

Check Out our current list events or out Welcome page to find who’s coming next. We welcome recommendations of bands you have heard and seen and would like to see in Darlington or any news that would be of interest and benefit to Darlington New Orleans Jazz. Please contact Ray with any feedback


So don’t be shy, give us and jazz a try!  You’ll be sure of a warm welcome.
