Karen Sharp Quartet @ Lincoln Drill Hall 5th November.

Lincoln Drill Hall Saturday 5 November 8pm

New Jazz 5 Presents the Karen Sharp Quartet

With Karen Sharp on tenor saxophone, Nikki Iles on piano, Dave Green on double bass & Steve Brown on drums. Since graduating from Humphrey Littleton’s band, Karen has developed into a major artist who is very much in demand judging by her busy touring schedule. She brings her new Quartet to the Drill Hall as part of an extensive UK tour, when she fronts what must be the to-die-for rhythm section of British jazz. Karen has a warm, singing tone, a melodic flair and a great sense of swing.

Tickets: £14 (£12 concessions / £7 students) 01522 872894 www.lincolndrillhall.com

Midwezt – Check out their new album “Closer”

Midwezt – Check out their new album “Closer”

The vocal prowess of lead singer songwriter Charleen Armitage are backed by guitarist/songwriter Mick Davison (who has opened for acts such as the Moody Blues, the Who, the Rolling Stones and Van Morrison in his impressive career) and bassist Rex Gates who as a member of the Checkmates had shared the bill with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. With such experienced, professional line up, the band has always been destined to offer something of exquisite quality and with the country/Americana tinged Closer, they certainly do.

Jazz At The Kitty Hall, Voodoo Lounge, Stamford.

Jazz At The Kitty Hall
The Concept of Jazz at the Kitty Halls
Recreated at Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge in Stamford, where the wonderful Creole and Cajun restaurant will be serving a special selection of Louisiana dishes prior to the show.

Due to lack of conventional revenue the operators of dance halls in New Orleans in the '60's found it necessary to place a "Kitty" basket/jar in front of the band stand or to pass a basket in order to pay the band.

Mama Liz wish to try and maintain a presence of jazz in the tradition of New Orleans styled music to compliment the cuisine and atmosphere of the venue and anyone is welcome to respond in kind.

We hope you enjoy the repertoire of popular songs, rags, marches, spirituals,
vaudeville and general joie de vivre of an evening’s music.

The band name is "Bill Dickens' Fron-Zi-Me Stompers” which is the phonetic
pronunciation of “Francs Amis” after which a dance hall operated in New
Orleans ("Francs Amis Hall" – roughly translated “True Friends Hall”).

The address was given as 1820, North Robertson Street, Tremé / Lafitte, New
Orleans, built in 1861 in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city.

It is the tradition for many European bands who try and play New Orleans
style music to adopt a name synonymous with the city either a street, park or
area - in this case a dance hall.
See... www.mamaliz.co.uk
The Musicians:-
Bill Dickens - Trumpet - Leader
Colin Radford - Clarinet & Alto
Gerry Rose - String Bass
Chris Reilley - Piano
