About the Band
What happens when you mix great jazz, funk, fusion and pop together, all played by some of the finest session and jazz musicians from across the UK? Well, jazz trumpeter and guitarist Nick Dewhurst and his band are all about finding that out!
The 6 piece band features Nick on Trumpet and Guitar, joined by Sam Craig on Tenor Saxophone, Beth Fisher-Dewhurst on Alto Sax, Tom Lindsay on Keys and Vocals, Paul Robinson on Bass Guitar, and Carl Hemmingsley on Drums.
Since forming in 2015, the band has recorded two albums ‘Suspect in You’ and ‘Skyrocket’, and has performed many concerts and gigs over the years, including playing at the Lichfield Blues & Jazz Festival, Birmingham Jazz Legends Festival, Jazzlines/BMusic in Birmingham, and now plays regularly at Matt and Phreds Jazz Club in Manchester, where it continues to develop its ‘Get The Party Started’ Pop-Jazz Set.
In addition to these performances, the band has done several concerts with major UK guest musicians, including Mike Walker on Guitar, Dennis Rollins on Trombone, and Derek Nash on Saxes.
