Red Stripe Band Mar 5th
Feb 13th – Mysto’s Hot Lips – long standing friends from Gothenburg in Sweden return to bring us their distinctive and enthusiastic style of traditional jazz modelled on the sounds of Ken Colyer and Chris Barber and described as “revival jazz at its best”. £10.
Feb 20th – Boston Spa Beer Festival Weekend – no evening session this week but Ron Burnett’s Mardi Gras Quartet will entertain the real ale aficionados during Saturday afternoon. Great selection of ales and ciders and always a terrific atmosphere.
Feb 27th – Dave Mott’s Jazz Classics – Led by maestro Dave on reeds, the group includes young trumpet star Jamie Brownfield plus our favourite piano star, Tom Kincaid with Richard Vernon on bass. Traditional jazz plus the standards coupled with vocals by the delightful Suzanne.
Mar 5th – Red Stripe Band – back by request and something a little different. Red Stripe led by the dynamic Neil Drinkwater on keyboards - boogie woogie, jump jive, blues, swing and rock and roll for nigh on twenty years. Infectious energy coupled with lashings of high octane music. £10
Mar 12th - Old Fashioned Love Band – old friends but with a new format. This session will appeal to those who enjoy the Chicago-type traditional jazz in the Condon style. Led by trombonist Mike Pembroke, the band also features Any Wallace on reeds, John Critchley on trumpet and Ian McCann of the Harlems on banjo/guitar. This group is well able to blow up a storm.
Mar 19th - Mart Rodger Manchester Jazz – a long time favourite with the JITS audience, we welcome Manchester Jazz which has been delighting audiences in the North and abroad since 1984. Traditional jazz at its best - and a rather special birthday for Mart!
Mar 26 Tame Valley Stompers -Easter’s early this year so just to egg you on we look forward to the annual visit of the Stompers – otherwise known as Terry’s Dead Good Boys. One of our most respected trombone players leads this group dedicated to wholesome traditional jazz with a sense of humour. Terry’s rendition of Ory’s Creole trombone is legendary.
