About the Band

Formed in 2015, the Nick Dewhurst Band takes the shape of a quintet, featuring Nick on Trumpet, Flugelhorn and Guitar, Callum Roxburgh on Tenor Saxophone, Tom Lindsay on Piano, Electric Piano & Organ, Tom Moore on Electric and Double Bass, and Carl Hemmingsley on Drums. With each musician bringing their own influences to the band, the Nick Dewhurst band has developed a sound which is an exciting blend of Hard Bop and Jazz-Funk Fusion. You can expect to hear a mixture of jazz standards, some of Nick’s original compositions, and tunes composed or recorded by some of Nick’s favourite trumpeters.

Suspect in You – the Band’s debut CD

During 2016 the band recorded it’s debut CD ‘Suspect in You’. The CD, recorded mostly live in 3 days, features 8 of Nick’s compositions (including Suspect in You, and Fusion Line), and also features the jazz standard ‘Easy Living’.
