The Darktown Strutters

Foot-tapping fun with the Darktown Strutters!

This popular seven-piece band plays rumbustiuous good-time Dixieland jazz with energy and exuberance. They bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the traditional jazz scene with a formula which combines fun and entertainment with classic Dixieland in the Eddie Condon/Alex Welsh style.

The band is led by trumpeter Geoff Nichols. Hailed for his musical skills by Humphrey Littleton, Geoff has played with many of the jazz greats including his close friend Acker Bilk, and was a major figure in the 1950s traditional jazz revival, fronting the legendary Avon Cities Band for 50 years. He later led the celebrated Blue Notes band.

Also in the line-up is double gold disc pianist Colin Frechter. Colin has played with many top jazz bands but has also performed with numerous other artistes: The Four Tops, Brotherhood Of Man, Sacha Distel, Shakin’ Stevens, Elaine Paige, The Troggs, Des O’ Connor, Showaddywaddy, Joe Brown, The Bay City Rollers, Robbie Williams, Nazareth, Cilla Black, Tom Waite, Take That and Elton John – to name but a few!

The band has built up a devoted following in the South-West among people who like to tap their feet, laugh and enjoy a good night out.

Expect banter and humour – a great night’s entertainment!

Geoff Nichols (trumpet, tenor horn, vocals), Tony James (bass, vocals), Pete Middleton (clarinet), John Bradley (banjo, guitar and vocals), Colin Frechter (keyboard), Tony Mann (trombone, Sousaphone).

Doors open at 8pm for 8.30pm start. Tickets £10 on the door.

Licenced bar and coffee shop will be open.
