Event description

Description

Join us for the launch of our First Friday Jazz Club on 3rd November 2017 with our first of a range of professional bands performing!

First band will be foot-tapping fun with the Darktown Strutters!

This popular seven-piece band plays rumbustiuous good-time Dixieland jazz with energy and exuberance. They bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the traditional jazz scene with a formula which combines fun and entertainment with classic Dixieland in the Eddie Condon/Alex Welsh style.

The band is led by trumpeter Geoff Nichols. Hailed for his musical skills by Humphrey Littleton, Geoff has played with many of the jazz greats including his close friend Acker Bilk, and was a major figure in the 1950s traditional jazz revival, fronting the legendary Avon Cities Band for 50 years. He later led the celebrated Blue Notes band.

Also in the line-up is double gold disc pianist Colin Frechter. Colin has played with many top jazz bands but has also performed with numerous other artistes: The Four Tops, Brotherhood Of Man, Sacha Distel, Shakin' Stevens, Elaine Paige, The Troggs, Des O' Connor, Showaddywaddy, Joe Brown, The Bay City Rollers, Robbie Williams, Nazareth, Cilla Black, Tom Waite, Take That and Elton John - to name but a few!

The band has built up a devoted following in the South-West among people who like to tap their feet, laugh and enjoy a good night out.

Expect banter and humour - a great night’s entertainment!

There will be a licenced bar and coffee shop open. Why not bring your friends! It's going to be a great night!
