Mart Rodger Manchester Jazz
From Les and the Team at Boston Spa-
Well, here we are again - heading towards the end of another year which has seen some truly enjoyable sessions. Unfair perhaps to mention some and not others but the Potato Head band from Spain was an undoubted success as was the delightful evening with Stephanie Trick and Paolo coupled with the Daytones; Jeff B presided, as always, over two excellent sessions in May and August and Hot Fingers with the superb Emily Campbell captivated the audience - as did the Carl Sinclair Boogie Band albeit with a much different style.
Our January dates 2015 are
10th – Savannah Jazz Band - the traditional start to the annual programme and always much anticipated. The Savannah in robust form after a well earned rest to bring us back to life and ready to face the credit card bills! Traditional jazz at its best with some rollickin’ R & B thrown in for good measure.
17th – Andy Henderson Swingtet – here’s a nod towards the quartets and quintets of the 40s and 50s and the standards made famous by the swing bands of the era. Andy on trumpet is well known through appearances with Café Society, the Harmony Hounds and Six in a Bar. Joining Andy on the front line is our local hero Frank Brooker on reeds. Quality evening assured!
24th - Alan Barnes + John Hallam + Tom Kincaid Trio – one of the most enjoyable musical combinations we are privileged to present. First set up by Tim in 2011, this is one of the highlights of our annual programme. Two of the UK’s finest saxophonists supported by a superb rhythm section. £10
31st – Mart Rodger Manchester Jazz – here’s more enjoyable sounds by one of the most respected traditional jazz groups in the North. Over 32 years of “making people happy”, Mart’s band includes Louis Lince on banjo and Ken Marley on bass. A fitting finale to the first month of 2015.
Don’t forget – over the Festive period - Days Inn Hotel at Wetherby Services
