PETER KING - SPECIAL TRIBUTE AND BENEFIT NIGHT 8:30pm Mon 29 June
75 years old this year, Peter King is still dazzling audiences with his spontaneity, sensational swing, beauteous melodic sense and breathtaking virtuosity. Peter is a national treasure - one of the greatest alto sax players in the world and one the greatest musicians to have emerged from the UK. He has often been compared to Charlie Parker but is very much his own man - often imitated but never duplicated. He soars over changes playing pure melody with the excitement of a hurricane and imbues every note with passion and vitality.
Many very special guests, colleagues, friends and fans will come together for this celebration/benefit to play and be part of this unique evening.
All proceeds from the night's performance will go towards Peter's medical care and expenses. Please come and show your support for one of the last living legends of this music.
Don't miss the chance to be there and hear what will be a very special night of music, and to support a true jazz great, made in the UK.
