Gill Wilde Cleethorpes Jazz Festival and Grimsby Jazz
"I've many good memories of our gigs this year.
The support from Jazz North enabled us to book the Jazz Worriers, great musicians with a sense of humour proved very entertaining. We could not go wrong with Darius Brubeck Quartet filling the venue and always a favourite Nikki Iles - with and without Tina May. The latter two made ourJazz Prom @ the Minster a huge Saturday afternoon success.
One of the highlights was the discovery of Vein - an outstanding band from Switzerland, consumate musicians without a doubt would impress at any venue. New discovery Vimila Rowe is one to watch out for, amazing voice and wide jazz repertoire is a major attraction with or without accompanist John Etheridge.
And of course Cleethorpes Jazz Festival 2015 was another success and one which will be repeated in June 2016 with another outstanding line up!
