At the moment my regular gig is with the Green Chain Quartet, featuring old friends and London music legends John Gittos on Hammond, Mel Wright on drums and Dave Morris on saxophones.Musically it's a sort of soul-jazz/jazz-blues of the kind of melting pot that produced Jimmy Smith, Richard 'Groove' Holmes, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Billy Hart and Grady Tate.
But, because we've all played lots of different styles of music together, and we've been working with lots of guests across a wide spectrum of musical styles (most months at the Daylight Inn we feature a guest singer or instrumentalist) it's growing organically and, though originally we try to be as true as possible to the original soul-jazz boogaloo sound, I quite like the way we adjust to fit the styles required!Hear us live at the following public events:
8pm Thursday 4th August @ The Daylight Inn, Petts Wood, Bromley. Guest vocalist Amanda Forbes.
3pm Sunday 7th August @ Hampstead Heath: Parliament Hill Bandstand, Parliament Hill Fields (near Tennis Courts) Highgate Road, London, NW5 1QR
8pm Thursday 1st September @ The Daylight Inn, Petts Wood, Bromley. Special guest TBC.
