Hot Fingers with Emily Campbell 1 Dec
From Les and the team at Boston Spa
Sat 17th November – 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.
Sat 1st December – Hot Fingers with Emily Campbell – one of our most requested groups led by the UK’s finest exponent of the guitar and banjo – “Spats Langham”. On this occasion, the music is described as the “red hot jazz” of 1920’s New York. Without question, it’s a truly class act – the more so with the delightful Emily – a classically trained and superb vocalist who claims to draw her inspiration from Ella and Peggy Lee. But this only scratches the surface of the wonderful sounds which emanate from this talented group. Not to be missed!
Sat 15th December – Christmas Party Night with the Harlem Hot Stompers – and would you believe it – it’s Christmas Party Time again! The ‘official’ start to the Christmas Festivities with its traditional festive atmosphere, nibbles, mince pies and the special Christmas raffle. And the whole fun filled celebration driven along at a cracking pace by the Harlems with their special guests - Bill Smith on cornet and Mike Pembroke on trombone. A fitting end to a wonderful year of wonderful sounds!
Thanks for your support – it’s what keeps music live. Spread the word – JITS is live, fun and friendly – no better way to spend Saturday evening.
