Saturday 8 September 2018 MARTIN BENNETT'S OLD GREEN RIVER BAND

A distinctive sounding 6/7 piece band. Has been described as a cross between New Orleans jazz and R+B. Certainly very rhythmic with Martin on keyboard and leader of the band. Widely travelled in the UK and Europe. Martin always has very capable and interesting musicians with him. In recent years he has included the very talented young  Alex Clark on Clarinet and saxes and she will be with us again on this occasion. Hopefully their long standing reeds player, Howard Murray, will be fit again to play. He was poorly last year.

 

After 24 years of jazz at Roa Island the last gig will be with on the 8 September 2018 with Martin Bennett's Old Green River Band with Alex Clarke. After a minor incident at our last gig, the Roa Island Boat Club informed me that I could no longer serve food at my jazz events. Since Cooking with Jazz has been a major factor in selling 'tickets' I said that I would not continue. I and others are now diverting our support to the Kendal Jazz Club. Val Kennedy is considering putting on a substitute for the Keith Nichols gig at Abbots Hall Hotel, Kents Bank. Paul Loftus also hopes to revive the Prince of Wales Pub, Foxfield, as a jazz venue.
