Jazz at the Blue Lamp is a group of jazz fans from Aberdeen who came together to present the best of jazz from Scotland, the UK and around the world. The work is all done on a voluntary basis and is supported by Jazz Scotland, Creative Scotland and other bodies who we can be persuaded to help us.
The Blue Lamp has been the venue for some great concerts since Jazz Aberdeen started promoting jazz in 2002 and this work has been continued by us since 2011. The Blue Lamp is considered by many as one of the finest jazz venues in the UK both for its wonderful, friendly atmosphere and its natural sound enhanced by a first rate sound system originally installed with help from the Scottish Arts Council (later changed to Creative Scotland). So many world class musicians have played here including Georgie Fame, Kenny Garrett, Peter King, Arild Andersen and Mike Stern who gave a stellar concert in 2011 and they have all commented on the friendliness and enthusiasm of the audience and the atmosphere of the club.
