CHRIS DIFFORD (Squeeze) - 'Up the Junction' Tour April - August dates available

Chris Difford
Chris brings his ‘Up the Junction’ tour providing mores stories from the kitchen sink. A stand up and sit-down night of tales and songs from his past in Squeeze.
Chris Difford is a rare breed. As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has made a lasting contribution to music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’. Despite the fact that Chris has helped soundtrack so many fans’ lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing rather than sit back and admire his handiwork. For over 40 years he has been writing with Glenn Tilbrook, very much the Odd Couple.
Over the course of a 13 album career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His ‘kitchen sink-drama’ style has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, while his influence is keenly felt today. The likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Feeling have all recognised the debt they owe to Squeeze’s music and to Difford’s way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’.
Chris first learned to stand on his own when he wrote the lyrics for the fictional band Strange Fruit in the 1998 British comedy film ‘Still Crazy’, for which he won his first Ivor Novello award. Since then he has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry.
Chris has curated ‘Songs In The Key Of London’ event at the Barbican, bringing together musicians old and new such as Glenn Tilbrook, Suggs, Jools Holland, Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets) and James Hunter, as well as students from the local community. A second event took place in Greenwich Park in 2011 with Gary Kemp, Chris Wood, UB40 and others. In 2014 ‘Songs In The Key Of London’ took place in Regents park with Gregory Porter, The Strypes, Guy Barker Ed Harcourt and Sophie Ellis Baxter.
Chris hosts songwriter workshops and has done so for over 25 years. In 2014 he formed a partnership with ‘The Buddy Holly Foundation’ to run a week of writing at Pennard House Glastonbury. Other writing events include Guardian Master Classes held in London and smaller events at The Rathfinney Wine Estate in East Sussex.

John Etherridge's Sweet Chorus at Peterborough Jazz Club, Sunday 3rd March, 2019.

Peterborough Jazz Club at The Broadway Suite




Music starts at 7.30pm            
                   Doors open at 7.00pm              Tickets £14

A very welcome return to the Club after a seven year gap for this sublime band, led by the superb guitarist John Etheridge. Now celebrating their 19th year together, "Sweet Chorus" was originally formed by John Etheridge as a personal tribute to his mentor and inspiration that was Stephane Grappelli, with whom he worked for 5 years in the 1970's and early 1980's. Taking its cue from the Hot Club of France - the legendary group that featured Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, the band features John's dazzling guitar work together with the scintillating violin of Christian Garrick. The relationship of these two musicians has been described as one of the most brilliant sounds in European Jazz. Backed by the propulsive drive of Dave Kelbie on rhythm guitar and Andy Crowdy on bass, the band produces breathtaking choruses through repertoire both old and new.
