Barritone Singer - Looking for Band
Looking to form a small quintet Jazz Band in order to play Comedy/Cabaret Jazz (for regular festival bookings) alongside a straight set of standards of Swing and Cool Jazz (for functions such as regattas, weddings, and parties of any occasion).
Although serious about the work I generate, I have a strong commitment to tongue and cheek. For the past year I have been leading a quartet, in the town of Totnes, called "The South Street Swingers" and will now be moving back to my home town of Reading.
Musicians should have an ability to improvise, and collaborative attitude for the running of the shows.
