Richard Exall

Tuesday May 3rd 8.00pm

The Krupa Connection – (formerly Three Men on Third)  featuring the music of the Gene Krupa Trio: Richard Exall (clarinet/sax), Alan Haughton (piano) and John Watson (drums)JohnWatsonDrums

Don’t miss this classic trio. The personnel of the original trios contained such giants as Charlie Ventura, Eddie Shu, Willie Smith, a Napoleon or two and
Hank Jones so you have to be good to take this on as a project. As you listen to the Krupa Connection you will marvel at the neat arrangements which maintain such excitement between the soloing.
The three instruments are cleverly meshed together to keep the surprises coming and the fireworks fizzing and popping.

£10/£8 in advance

Graham Hughes’



Top London band “Graham Hughes’ Sunshine Kings” swing by OJC. Jazz inspired by the music of New Orleans, the singing and dancing of the 1920’s, the dixieland and trad revivals in America and the UK since then, and by the musicians we work with here and now from all over the world.

The Sunshine Kings brings it all together into a band that makes people of all ages dance, clap, tap toes, and go home with a smile. Great for dancing, great for listening, great for anyone wanting to have a good time.

£12/£10 in advance
