Fans can experience nearly three hours of live music twice a week at Ocean, in Queen's Drive, with an additional session on Tuesday nights.

The evenings will run for five weeks and feature All Jazzed Up and a special guest. The band will continue to perform in its usual Thursday night slot.

Ocean has held a music night every Thursday since January 2017 with between 150 and 200 people attending.

To mark the start of the Tuesday night sessions All Jazzed Up were joined by musician Alfie Pugh on July 30.

The percussionist teamed up with the band for renditions of the Paddington Bear theme song, The Deadwood Stage, Hushaby Mountain and Whatever Lola Wants.

The music was just the ticket for the South West Lindyhop group who showed off their moves on the dance floor.

All Jazzed Up featured James Billington on vocals, Pete Manfield on bass, Gary Evans on drums and Tom Ball on keys.

Music from jazz favourites Nat King Cole, Michael Buble and Jamie Cullum were performed on the night.

The evening ended with the toe-tapping performance of I Wanna Be Like You from The Jungle Book.

All Jazzed Up will return with its seven-piece band on Thursday, August 1.
