our 2018-19 events were held at Royal Torbay Yacht Club. 2020-21 saw a hiatus and a re-focussing on what's important - accessible, quality music in a good acoustic! 
Our 2022 events were at Torquay Rugby Club and Hamilton's Club in Babbacombe:

2023 saw us move again showing jazz clubs need to be nimble and resilient and we hope our audience keeps the faith.

In June, fresh from a tour incorporating Ronnie Scott's, we had Jesse Molins's guitar in duo with Tom Ball on piano.
In July, award winning Canadian saxophonist Terry Quinney joined us with his quartet.
And in August soulful vocalist Louise Parker sang with Kent-based, horn-heavy Quintet Lateral Flow.





30th September saw sax supremo Martin Dale head on over from his Plymouth base to show us how it's done.



 
And 28th October brought London-based superstar flautist, Gareth Lockrane, to Torquay for the very first time - hot off the TV and this year's Aretha Franklin prom concert! Gareth blew our socks off and was immediately rebooked for 2023.
He is a multi-award winning composer and band leader (like the Mobo award for best album) and his incredible facility on all the flutes has to be seen to be believed.
18th November: maestro Andy Panayi, professor of jazz, saxophones and flute.
December brought us the lovely Annika Skoogh with some Chrustams songs mixed in.
January saw a debut for Marvin Muoneke and With respect to Nat and their Nat King Cole homage - they went down a storm and will be back.
February was the turn of Derek Nash with the Martin Dale quartet for our best ever attneded gig -and last ever at Hamilton's sadly!
March sees us return to the rugby club with Sam Massey, Jesse Molins and Coach York for some trumpet / organ based groove and April will be the debut at Gresham Court's luscious Art Deco bar with cocktails on special.

For future shows, please book online 
...or take your chances on the door

It's All About The Music

Liquid Spirit is all about the music, and at each event we will be presenting top musical talent from the South West and beyond.

For our 15TH February 2019 Event with Great Pleasure we Welcomed 

an AMAZING Jazz Funk Collective led by TALENTED Saxophonist Neil Maya, also featuring Jesse Molins on guitar

Neil Maya

Neil relocated to Totnes over a decade ago and, since then, has forged a reputation as a fearsome improviser and a bandleader whom other musicians love to follow.

 

A regular at the Teignmouth Jazz Festival, and at all the jazz clubs in the South West, he has earned a loyal following through his consistent dedication and ability to entertain an audience. 

Neil is an innovator and, alongside his original compositions, has sculpted his quartet into a credible tribute to Dave Brubeck's band, and latterly to celebrate a key year in jazz, the 1959 project. 

For Friday night at Liquid Spirit, Neil and long time collaborator Jesse Molins have put together a jazz funk set sure to delight and get the feet moving!

Neil Maya

Neil is in demand all over the South West as a saxophonist, band leader and composer. He conceived the Dave Brubeck project and the 1959 project, and runs a pop function band, Solar.
