MARTIN BENNETT'S OLD GREEN RIVER BAND

This widely travelled and distinctive sounding band brings vibrant life to early blues and jazz. This band develops its programme and is never boring. A 6 piece band. Long time visitors to Roa Island. The band's appearance at Roa Island will include Alex Clarke, the very promising young lady saxophonist who came in 2016.

 Saturday 25 November 2017 MIKE LOVELL'S 6 IN BAR

This band has played for us several times in the past and put on a very professional show. The only reason they stopped playing for us was because we were trying to pack to much into our programme. Your organiser needs a summer break. He's getting older! Some really interesting and swinging classic jazz. Willy Entwistle their star reeds player also plays jazz violin! Good vocals from the musicians.
Saturday 20 January 2018 ALAN BEECHAM'S BAND

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.
Saturday 3 March 2018 KEITH NICHOLS HOT FIVE. BOOK EARLY

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.
