December is almost here, and the NLT will be going up to 11 December.
The Christmas gig on 18 December has had to be cancelled, sorry about this.
On the 4th is my big band, featuring an amazing line up:
Saxophones - Martin Speake, Mike Chillingworth, Josh Arcoleo, Joe Wright, Rob Cope
Trumpets - Tom Walsh, Nick Smart, Reuben Fowler, Rory Simmons
Trombones - Kieran McLeod, Patrick Hayes, Tom Green, Sam Freeman
Guitar - Alex Munk
Piano - Tom Taylor
Bass - James Opstad
Drums - Jon Ormston
We're going into the studio to record our album with Colin Towns 2 days after this gig so should be a lively one!
On the 11th, we welcome two fantastic bands: Percy Pursglove's London Trumpet Ensemble and the Martin Speake Trio. Percy's band features himself, Robbie Robson and Steve Fishwick on trumpets, and an amazing rhythm section of Michael Janisch, Andrew Bain and Malcolm Edmonstone. Martin Speake's trio is similarly stellar: made up of drummer Jeff Williams, and guitarist Mike Outram.
As usual, Sundays, 7.30pm, £5.
4 - The Jack Davies Big Band
11- Percy Pursglove's London Trumpet Ensemble + Martin Speake Trio
