Purple Cheesecake Album Launch [Video]

In 2020 at Scarborough Jazz we have our ‘New Jazz Generation’ initiative giving local young musicians opportunity to play support slots at the club. One of the bands we had earmarked before the coronavirus hit was Purple Cheesecake. This local funk-jazz outfit with a constantly evolving lineup have a strong following as you can probably tell from this footage when they filled The Cask (venue for Scarborough Jazz) earlier this year at their album launch party.

Take a look and enjoy their infectious enthusiasm, obvious love of music, welcoming attuitude and easy stage presence. And then realise all these musicians are just 15/16 years old. Also keep an eye out for a few special guests…

These young people and their friends had big plans for making music this summer and our heart goes out to them that this may not be possible with the current socialising restrictions. As soon as the club is up and running again we will aim to bring you this band live.
