Roy Williams has played with most of the top players in the UK; Jazz Journal International voted him Top Trombonist for four years running in the 1980s, when he beat Bill Watrous into second place. He has also made a habit of winning the British Jazz Awards. He has played with the bands of Terry Lightfoot, Alex Welsh and Humphrey Lyttleton, and has toured and recorded with visiting American musicians Bud Freeman, Wild Bill Davison and Ruby Braff. He is much in demand at jazz festivals all over the world, and is one of the relatively few musicians who has succeeded in making a living by playing jazz.

DeniseGordonWBorn to Nevisian parents, the UK based soulful jazz singer Denise Gordon has performed around the world from Australia to Zimbabwe! Denise tours frequently throughout Europe, can be seen regularly in Germany and Switzerland, has performed at Jazz Ascona festival & in the U.S in the beloved city of New Orleans at the prestigious Preservation Hall; in countries as far away as Australia, Brazil and China & Hong Kong and at home in the UK in venues as varied as Buckingham Palace, Glastonbury, T in the Park, and Edinburgh Festival, adapting her style from the smallest and most intimate venues to the largest theatres.

Also, don’t forget that quality food is available – two main courses for £10! Booking is becoming essential so phone the club now on 01234 711348 to reserve a table.
We take our summer break in August but are back with a bang on September 2nd with the return of the award-winning saxophonist Simon Spillett, guesting with Tomas Pedersen (bass), Ronnie Fenn (drums) and yours truly on piano.
