It is with sadness that we report the death of Dave Hatfield, one of the founders of Leeds Jazz and programmer of Fusebox in Leeds, who passed away on Monday.
Dave was a part of Leeds Jazz from their first gig in 1984 until their final gig in 2009 and you can read about their history on the Leeds Jazz website. When Leeds Jazz wound down, Dave went on to run Fusebox, a monthly night focused on innovative, improvised music both from the UK and abroad.
The funeral will take place at Rawdon Cemetery on January 29th at 3pm. Afterwards, there will be a celebration of Dave's life at Seven Arts to which everyone is welcome.
