Third time at Roa Island we are pleased to re-book Alan's band. We are
still looking for a catchy title. Alan has assembled this 6 piece band
from the best of the talent in the area. The 'area' includes Furness and
stretches as far as Kendal and the Fylde. All very talented. Some
Tipitina style R+B as well as the jazzy numbers. This is very
interesting and entertaining programme. Will keep the jivers jiving.

KEITH NICHOLS HOT FIVE. BOOK
Includes Spats Langham of course. An all star band. A lot of 1920's and
30's dance band jazz. Seriously professional stuff, some of it very
funny like Minnie the Moocher. Keith is also a star ragtime and Harlem
stride piano player. Spats does his own brilliant thing, early Bing
Crosby etc. The band are now working some very good blues into the
programme. Nick Ward's drumming is ideally suited to this sort of thing.
Trevor Whiting, reeds playing is terrific. He is in much demand
including playing with the Chris Barber Big Band. Completing the rhythm
section is Richard Vernon, a very good bass player and long time
associate of Spats.
