This will be the fiteenth consecutive Summer Jazz Weekend here at the Langstone Cliff Hotel.
Denise and Tony having the enviable knack of “Spotting the Good’uns” have again put together an excellent line up for this weekend.
The most talented bands retain their popularity year after year and we are always pleased to welcome the best for return visits – and that looks to us as if it is exactly what is happening for 2015. Once again we have a superb line up.
THE DENISE LAWRENCE BAND featuring RON DRAKE. Every year since the Millennium, 'regulars' have been enjoying Denise's annual jazz weekends at Langstone Cliff Hotel. With her huge repertoire, Denise's clear lilting vocals and spontaneous humour ensure that every concert she gives is different, whether she is simply singing with her brilliant pianist and husband, Tony - or when she is with the talented musicians of her band. As has become customary over the traditional Sunday lunch at Langstone Cliff, she is joined on stage by the sensational international clarinet and sax player, RON DRAKE
TERRY WILLIAMS' AMBASSADORS OF JAZZ
were founded in 2007 by multi-instrumentalist Terry Williams. Starting his playing in rock 'n' roll bands, silver bands and army bands, Terry, on trombone (and sometimes drums, vibraphone and vocals) has now enjoyed a long and successful career in the jazz world. He has played both in the UK and abroad alongside some of the finest jazz musicians around and as well as at all the prestigious jazz venues. His hand-picked team of band members really are ambassadors for jazz who are guaranteed to provide a stylish and varied opening night of fine music to get our jazz weekend off to a cracking start.
DAVE MARTIN'S JABBO FIVE. Leading this polished band is cornetist, Dave Martin, who has made his mark in several West Country bands since the mid-80s. His admiration for the hot trumpet playing of Jabbo Smith has led him to form this particular line-up of dedicated musicians. Whilst Jabbo Smith played throughout the jazz age' in the States, he is much remembered for his 'comeback' in the 60s and 70s, particularly in France. Dave's band presents Jabbo's style of music, and much more, with great flair and is ideal for the delightful Langstone Cliff Country Buffet Saturday lunch session.
THE STEVE TUCKER ALL STAR JAZZ BAND breathe fresh life into the classic jazz melodies of the 20s 30s and 40s. With splendid vocals from Steve from behind his string bass, you will enjoy a band which is sometimes powerful and dynamic, sometimes sensitive and full of passion - ideal for both listening and dancing in Langstone's beautiful Washington Ballroom. Launched only ten years ago, this hugely popular band are high on 'entertainment' and have earned widespread praise from the jazz press for their energy, enthusiasm and exciting performances. Our Saturday night promises to be in very capable hands.
