If you work in Central, escape the hustle and bustle, come and immerse yourself in a lunchtime concert of live jazz music. As Miles Davis once said, “Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life.”
Presented by the Fringe Club as one of the programmes of “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, Jazz Lunch showcases an impressive jazz combo in the classy setting of the Fringe Dairy. The combo includes professional jazz musicians and young emerging talents who all appreciate the opportunity to gain exposure, showcase their musicianship and improve their skills.
From September to December, jazz guitarist Tjoe Man Cheung will be sharing his jazz music, joined by his musician friends.

Tjoe Man Cheung
Tjoe is a leading Hong Kong-born-and-bred musician. This alumnus of the Musicians Institute is a favoured sideman in the Pop scene, a talented Jazz and Blues guitarist, and a proficient arranger and composer. Currently the official artist of Melancon, Tjoe is recognised by his creative approach, powerful soloing, unique improvisation and his splash of humour on stage.
From 2015 to 2016, Tjoe lived in London to expand his musical territory. He could often be found plying his trade at top venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Southbank Centre and Rich Mix. In addition to his active involvement in various bands and music projects, the young musician also initiated his own project, NTBM, an original jazz collective led by him and comprising emerging musicians from around the world. The group aspires to compose original jazz tunes and perform globally.
In 2017, Tjoe globally released his first album, and orange, with NTBM. It’s available as a 12-inch orange vinyl and a deluxe USB device. The launch was followed by tours to Osaka, Kanazawa, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur. Before and orange, Tjoe released an EP titled FLOW in mid-2014, and an EP titled FLOW LONDON in early 2016.
Tjoe is currently based in Hong Kong. In mid-August 2017, NTBM performed at Wow And Flutter, Hong Kong's biggest music festival celebrating local bands. As well as his own project, Tjoe is also the guitarist in local bands Majestic G and tfvsjs, and runs a regular jam session at Peel Fresco every Sunday.
