Saturday 24 September 2022: Hugh Turner Quintet

Saturday 24 September 2022: Hugh Turner Quintet, feat. Stuart Henderson and Anatoliy Vyacheslavov

Hard swinging jazz, blues and funk

Hugh Turner is a superbly exiting guitarist. His playing style is steeped in the blues and combined with the funkier side of jazz, creates a sonically exciting soundscape that fizzes with power, groove and stunning musicality. Hugh’s music appeals to a wide range of audiences from jazz aficionados to lovers of raw, musical energy and his performances have been a huge success at jazz clubs and music venues throughout the UK for over two decades.

Hugh will present a varied programme of jazz, blues and funk with soulful tenor saxophone playing from Ukrainian superstar Anatoliy Vyacheslavov, spellbinding trumpet from Stuart Henderson, accompanied by a hard swinging and funky rhythm section comprising the excellent Raph Mizraki on acoustic bass and virtuosic drummer Steve Wyndam.

Doors: 6.45pm, show 7.30pm. Tickets £15

 

Saturday 29 October 2022: Moscow Drug Club

Saturday 29 October 2022: Moscow Drug Club

Transcendent Troubadours of Gypsy Latin & Swing

Moscow Drug Club is a curious musical place where certain elements of 1930’s Berlin Cabaret,  Hot Club de France, Nuevo Tango and Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drink and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find the bar where  Django Reinhardt and Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local Tziganes.  Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Leornard Cohen, Tom Waits and Eartha Kitt.  Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating and intimate musical experience.

Moscow Drug Club have played some great venues and festivals of note including WOMAD, National Theatre London, International Gypsy Guitar Festival, Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, Marlborough Jazz Festival, Royal Albert Hall to name a few, and we can't wait to welcome them to Crowmarsh!

Saturday 12 March: Ben Holder Band SOLD OUT

Virtuosic Gypsy Jazz Violinist

SOLD OUT. This show is now sold out. For ticket waiting list, please email [email protected] or call 07795974223. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

Ben Holder is the most acclaimed and exciting jazz violinist in the UK. His classical studies began at the age of six and were complemented by training at the Birmingham Conservatoire. An introduction to jazz came in his early teens – classic masters such as Benny Goodman, Oscar Peterson and Stephane Grappelli – and lead Ben to truly find his place as a musician.

Ben possesses an innate sense of swing rhythm (something which often eludes classical players), breathtaking technical ability and true showmanship on stage. He offers flawless musicianship, heaps of energy and personality and a visible passion for his craft.

Ben's various awards bear testimony to these abilities. Often playing across the UK, Europe and further afield, he is a first-call jazz violinist for many of the country's top venues, line-ups and studios.

Ben will be joined on the bandstand by tremendous musicians Jez Cook (guitar), Paul Jefferies (double bass) and Mal Garret (drums)
