Seaside Shuffle Spectacular with Red Hot & Blue

The band (L to R) Roger Graham (tuba and double bass), Jimmy Tagford (drums), Peter Leonard (Leader, trumpet), Alan Creswell (clarinet), Steve Harding (banjo/guitar)

Spectacular red hot sunshine and deep blue skies greeted Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle fans on Saturday, 13th July, so what better band could there be to fulfil their musical whims that gorgeous afternoon? None other than newly formed Red Hot & Blue led by ace trumpeter, Peter Leonard.

And what better way to launch a debut gig than with a glorious festival street parade.

And what better way to set about winning a strong fan base than an enthralling session of jazz to launch festival sky high spirits into the stratosphere!

Red Hot & Blue accomplished all that and more, so here is the story in pictures.

Note the facia and value our fantastic jazz musicians!
