Thus 19th November the Phase 2 Jazz Orchestra are another Music and Performing Arts Service group. Saxophonist Stuart McDonald is providing workshops with the group in advance of the performance of this 30 piece band at 7.00pm  at 8.30pm Stuart will then take to the stage with his own band involving some of the top musicians in the region. Thom Whitworth on Trumpet, Warren Jolly double bass, John Perry drums and Lincolnshire's favourite guitarist Pat McCarthy.

This is followed up with a Christmas Special on Wed Dec 3rd with everyone's favourite saxophone player, Alan Barnes, who is joined by the lovely Nicola Farnon Trio with multi instrumentalist Piero Tucci and drummer Phil Johnson". Humphrey Lyttleton said about Nicola “She’s a remarkable performer on stage, a fine singer and an outstandingly swinging and propulsive bass player with an outgoing personality to match..!” Whatever time of year this line up will send you home happy!!
