Wisbech theatre hosts jazz next month
Trad jazz returns to Wisbech’s Angles Theatre with a fun evening of upbeat music with Pete Allen and Sean Moyses.
The duo will be on stage from 7.30pm on Friday, November 1.
Pete is an honorary citizen of New Orleans and has run his own bands for decades.
He is fully professional and rates as among the very best clarinetists in his genre.
Sean grew up around Wisbech and entertained with the Moyses family band. He has been a professional musician/entertainer for most of his life and spent 15 years working with Rod Mason’s Hot Five in Germany.
As well as playing jazz he continues to present his popular one man show “The Banjo Man”.
This year the dynamic duo will be joined by trumpeter and guitarist Jonathon Graham, a versatile musician who acknowledges Bix Beiderbeck and Django Rienhardt as his idols.
Jacqui Huggins will also be singing some Jazz and Swing classics in her inimitable style.
Clive Payne, a founder member of the famous Pasadena Roof Orchestra, will be laying down the bass notes on the mighty sousaphone.
He has spent all his life cherishing the dance bands of the 1920s and 30s.
Tickets are available from the Angles Theatre box office on 01945 474447.
