Just Jamie

If you haven’t heard of Jamie Cullum, you really should have.  One of the most gifted musicians of recent years, this small but perfectly formed pianist has time and again showcased his idiosyncratic style with both his own original music and quirky covers.

For evidence of this, one to YouTube is his marvellous mash up of Rihanna’s Umbrella and classic tune Singin’ in the Rain performed live at Music Matters 2009  – a combo he put together long before the cast of Glee and Gwyneth decided to give it a go.


The joy of Jamie is that he literally has music pumping through his veins – you can see this in the way he just can’t stop himself from humming along, providing his own percussive beat and gently moving to the groove.  His music ranges from the peaced out to the uplifting but in all of them you can really feel, cheesy though it is to say it, his genuine passion for what he does.


These days there is a range of popular music, it’s true, with chart-tastic teens (Bieber anyone?), the mighty Beyoncé and unstoppable Rihanna, the ubiquitous Adele and the kinds of dulcet tones produced by Bruno Mars, Jason DeRulo et al.  But if you’re up for something a bit different, a bit unexpected and a bit more interesting then Mr Cullum is exactly what you’re looking for.


As a result it’s no surprise that tickets are selling speedily for his appearance on the island on 8th December at an event organized by Just Jersey.  This is one of a series of concerts put on by Just Jersey which organises performances by exceptional artists at the Hotel de France to raise money for a broad range of charities while giving ‘the discerning Jersey resident’ an unparalleled evening’s entertainment.  The first Just Jersey event of this kind was a complete sell-out, so get in there now for Jamie Cullum’s appearance on Jersey before all the places are snapped up.


Jamie will be performing at Hotel de France on Thursday 8th December. Tickets start at £125 including drinks reception and three course dinner with wine. Visit for more information and to book your tickets.
