Che Joey

I thought Che Joey was between Cannon st and Market st, up some stairs with a three piece band playing jaz and smooth music, before disco hit the scene.  I was well under age geting in there and only ever got in because my elder sister knew the bouncer.

My late, great step father Edward Warburton [Trombonist] played here for many years.My goodness the stories that he shared with many,many fellow muscians was stunning what a great shame that jazz music was not enjoyable then as it is now to a girl born in the eighties. My father was a legend.

Long, live, Live jazz music.

the name of the club was Chez Joey and Alan Bowden is right about the site of the club. The upsatairs club between Cannon St and Market St may well have been Liston's Bar
