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.
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.
