It was lovely to do two local gigs with Jazz Tones recently. Set up as a background jazz combo, Jazz Tones recently played two gigs for the City Council. The first was for the Mayor at Home event in Lichfield Guildhall, and featured Beth Fisher on Alto and Tenor Saxes, Bill Maynard on Guitar, and yours truly on Bass Guitar (see picture!) Our second performance was then for the Sheriff’s Ride, a traditional event held annually in Lichfield. We entertained guests as they arrived from the ride, and sat down to lunch. This time, we had to provide an entirely acoustic ensemble as there was no power, so we went for Beth on Sax, yours truly on acoustic jazz guitar, and we welcomed Chris Dewhurst on Accordion, and Brad Hopkins on Drums.
Jazz Tones is available for all your background jazz needs, so please get in touch!
