Current Programme

October 2018

 

6th – Jake Leg Jug Band – here’s something a little different. The Jake Leg Jug Band brings you the authentic sounds of the 1920s and 30s America in the form of jazz, blues, gospel and ragtime on a variety of instruments including guitar, banjo, harmonica, dobro (a resonator guitar – me neither!), double bass plus washboard and vocals and - on this occasion - our old friend, Mike Pembroke on trombone. Sounds like an evening of good time music! www.thejakelegjugband.com

13th – Sorry – No Jazz – Art and Crafts Festival

20th – Classic Swing Jazz Band – another six piece group which has been recommended to us. Based in the North East and led by Bob Wade on trumpet, flugelhorn and clarinet, the band specialises in the well known numbers from the swing era plus what they describe as “the jazz classics”. All this plus a smattering of vocals from Olive – formerly with Maine Street Jazzmen.

27th – Carl Sinclair Boogie Band with John Hallam – the perfect way to end the month on an upbeat note. Jazz, blues, boogie woogie and so much more with the exuberant Carl on the keyboard and the superb John Hallam on reeds. Previous sessions have had everyone rockin’ in the ailes. Whatever your taste in music, we guarantee you’ll love this evening. Do come early – always a full house.

 

November 2018

3rd – Louis Louis Louis – and in keeping with the period of the year, here’s a cracker to get things going. As the name suggests, the sounds of Armstrong, Prima and Jordan and so much more. Four part harmonies, a honking horn (whatever that may be!) and a boogie woogie style piano from one of your favourite groups of enthusiastic young musicians. Guaranteed to fire up the many R & B fans amongst you.

10th -  Sorry – No Jazz

17th – Swing Commanders – one of the highlight evenings of the year. A stunning, vibrant and highly versatile group which performs an exciting mix of 40s/50s classics, swing, jump jive and so much more. Multi- instrumentalists par excellence coupled with truly energetic showmanship. Always an evening to remember.

24th – Sorry – No Jazz
