Dear Customers

BODY & SOUL is undergoing the biggest transformation in its history. From now on, the one and only BODY&SOUL is being rebranded as “My Club BODY & SOUL”. This new name will launch a membership system starting from October 2014.

As we approach the celebration of our 40th anniversary this August, we would like to thank you again for all of your heartfelt support and passion for Jazz music- as well as for your loyalty to the club.
In order to maintain this historical venue in the challenging times that the Tokyo Jazz has been facing for the last few years,we have come up with a solution that will help the club to survive and thrive.This solution is a direct response to the advice, suggestions and requests received from our loyal supporters.
First of all, we plan to make renovations to both the interior of the club and its exterior.Secondly, whilst continuing to welcome non-members, we will also introduce a new member’s club system which will hold many benefits for members. Members’ benefits include a special discount of 500 yen on tickets for them and their guests and priority reservations for special events. The membership fee costs 10,000 yen per year per person.
This membership system does not only provide many benefits relating to the club itself, but registering as a member is also an act of support for the Jazz music scene. Below are the names of artists that have endorsed this new approach:
Makoto Ozone,Terumasa Hino,Kimiko Ito, Junko Moriya,TOKU, D.D.Bridgewater,Eddie Gomez,Steve Gatt,Jimmy Cobb,Herbie Mason…

We hope to welcome you as a member in October.
Many thanks,
Kyoko Seki, BODY&SOUL Owner

Please note that food and drinks are subject to a 5% consumption tax and there is also a 5% service charge bringing total surcharges to 10%.
Performance Times
【Opening time of performance changed from July 2010】

Recently, many customers tend to leave early to catch the last train.
Maybe it’s because of this deflation.
We are going to change the show times from July,
so that all the customers can relax and enjoy the show and not worry about the last train.

〈The new time table〉

Open:19:00 (Weekdays) 18:00(Saturdays, Sunday/Holidays)
1st set 20:00~/2nd set 21:45~
(Saturdays, Sunday/Holidays) 1st set 19:00~/2nd set 20:45~
We’ve decided not to change the opening time on the weekdays
because of the rehearsals and the dinner time for the staffs and the musicians.
We ask for your understanding.

Each stage lasts for approximately 75 minutes with the second stage scheduled to finish at 23:30.
Please understand that performance times may vary according to each musician.
Entry fees usually cover both shows, but on occasions we do hold special live shows consisting of two stages with each stage charged separately.
Please check the schedule or call us to determine the charges for each show.

Sunday Special
We have this ?Sunday Special? about once a month. We made this time table only for Sundays so that the customers can come early and take time to enjoy their meals before the 1st set. The performers are mostly musicians who do not perform very often, or sometimes it could be a performance which has a special purpose. We open at 17:00, and the 1st set starts at 18:00, and the 2nd set starts at 20:00. Please feel free to stop by with your family or your partner.
