Ed Jones has worked with an amazing spectrum of jazz, R & B, and hip-hop legends, including George Benson, Horace Silver,Dianne Reeves, Dr Lonnie Smith, Jamie Cullum, Incognito, Us3, Tina Turner, Omar, D’Angelo, Killer Shrimp with Damon Brown, and many more. He has released several acclaimed albums and toured worldwide with his own and other bands, playing an impressive range of styles from hard swinging jazz and experimental music, to funk and hip-hop.

“One of Europe’s most exciting and innovative bandleaders”-BBC Music Magazine

“A formidable saxophonist. Ed Jones may have hit his highest profile through his work with bands US3 and Incognito, but he’s an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination, and one of the UK’s most distinctive saxophonists.” -John Fordham, The Guardian.

Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.

Sat 15 May: From Step 3 of the UK government’s ‘roadmap’, which comes into force on Monday 17 May 2021, we are able to open to a public audience. For all events from 17 May, until further changes are announced:

  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. This may mean that the ambient temperature is similar to outdoors, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • All audiences will be seated in socially-distanced bubbles. Please stay seated as much as possible while inside the building.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available as well as soap and water in the toilets; please use these frequently.
  • Bar service at the Arts Centre is carried out by volunteers. If they are available at any event, they will take orders at your seat, and bring drinks to you.
  • All members of the audience must wear a facemask while indoors, except if medically exempt, or when eating or drinking. Our experience is that this is one of the things most important for making some (perhaps more vulnerable) members of the audience feel safe to attend concerts. Whatever your opinion of the efficacy of facemasks in preventing the spread of the virus, please help to reassure others, and showing that you’re thinking of them, by complying with this.
  • There are posters inside the building showing the QR code that’s connected to the NHS Track and Trace app – please use this. We will also keep a record of all ticket buyers for the required period, and pass this on to the NHS or Devon Public Health if requested.
