Friday 18th AUGUST
The Speakeasy Bootleg Band
The speakeasy Bootleg Band are purveyors of the "Finest Quality Bootleg Music Since Records Began.... Distilled & Bottled in New York and Chicago", but consumed wherever finer things are appreciated. SBB play a heady mix of jazz, jive and Harlem swing, the vintage sounds of the Cotton Club and Birdland, the illegal drinking haunts of prohibition Chicago and countless rent parties, driving bass, explosive drums and sophisticated witty vocals.
This is the music of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Art Blakey, the music which drove Tin Pan Alley and created the Great American Songbook. The SBB musicians have a ball on every gig, and make sure the audience do as well, making SBB the ideal band for people who don't like jazz...... until they've heard it that is........ The perfect antidote to all things serious! Good time, easy listening, toe tapping stuff. No more shall we hear the plaintive cry.............. "What time does the tune start?"............ After this, everything else is moonshine............ If you want to know more, then come and see us........ you won't be disappointed. This band is AWESOME!"

The Eclectic Band
The Eclectic Band are an electric jazz-fusion trio from Nottingham. In 2014, drummer and bandleader Jonathan Curtis released a number of albums under the name ‘Jonathan Curtis Eclectic Band’. These studio albums played original compositions using a host of fantastic musicians. The Eclectic Band are a permanent band that formed to play this material, and now have new material of their own, creating an eclectic blend of swing, funk, rock, latin, and reggae.
The band feature something called ‘an electric guitar’, expertly handled by the Unkempt Virtuoso Dan Dodson, who, despite possessing the look of a homeless man, manages to create tones that make one weep. Fans of Jeff Beck and Paul Gilbert will not want to miss him.
Young Marcus Cain takes bass duties. Though only 9 years old, his ability with a bass guitar rival those of one far his senior, and deftly handles prolonged low-frequency improvisation sections.
Jonathan Curtis, much to the others’ dismay, writes the tunes and hits the skins (though rarely at the same time). Stemming from both a metal and jazz background (again, rarely at the same times), the compositions and drumming both blend traditional jazz structure and improvisation, with modern flair and eclecticism...mostly.
