There’s loads planned for this summer! My own band have got two great gigs coming up, and Blast Off are out and about regularly too! There’s also the Blues & Jazz Festival happening in June, as well as the monthly jazz nights continuing till the end of the year!
Here’s some of the main highlights…
1) Saturday 18th May: Nick Dewhurst Band play ‘Kind of Blue-ish’ as part of the Birmingham Jazz Legends Festival. It’s our take on Miles Davis’ famous album!
2) Saturday 1st June: Nick Dewhurst Band plus special guest Derek Nash! We’ll be putting on a full on funky show with this great guest saxophonist!
3) Sunday 30th June: Blast Off play at the Feathers. Always a terrific evening, and the pub is always packed! The band has 40 members…so it’s going to be a very big big-band gig!! Mike & Tracey are great hosts too, so we’re looking forward to this one!
4) Sunday 14th July: Blast Off’s 5th Birthday Party! What an occasion this is going to be! The band was originally a one-off project put together for Fuse, and here we are, 5 years later! This is going to be some party…!! (Pic credit John Watson/jazzcamera.co.uk)
5) Sunday 11th August: Blast Off head once again to the Red Lion in Longdon Green. It’s a beer festival, so what’s not to like? We’ll keep you entertained whilst you sample the long line of beers on offer! Make sure you get a taxi or have a designated driver!!!
