Jazz Night – more info on bands
The Centre’s next major event is a Jazz Night from 7.30pm (for an 8pm start) on Saturday September 13th where we are working in collaboration with local musicians to create a Jazz experience .
We have a huge amount of talent in area and are creating a Jazz Bar in the main hall serving cocktails and tasty treats. These are two of the bands who will be playing, and information on the other two will be added to the website very soon:
Mute Acoustic are an acoustic duo from Lancaster featuring Gavin Neil on guitar and Tom Hynes on Cajon. They have both recently left LRGS Sixth Form so are likely to be making their last appearance before leaving for University! They play a mixture of original music and covers, including OutKast’s Hey Ya!, each with their own interesting twist and have performed across Lancaster in various pubs, most recently the John O’Gaunt, and at other events such as the LRGS Charity Concert.
Much Different are a jazz and funk group much like the Lancaster-based Carbon Funkprint / Free Beer featuring musicians from the Lancashire Youth Jazz Orchestra.They play arrangements of songs from classic and current Funk, Soul, Rock, and Pop artists. The band has only recently been formed, with the intention of carrying on and developing their own style at the other end of the country, with a number of the band members headed to the University of Cambridge this year.
Tickets are £10 each (including a light supper) and are available from the Coffee Shop during opening hours and from Halton Village Newsagents in the High Road. A licensed bar is also available
