£6 on the door

A rare opportunity to see one of the club's most popular performers - multi-award winning sax man Alan Barnes together with celebrated singer Tina May.
Born in Gloucester and spending her student days in Paris, award winning jazz vocalist Tina has recorded numerous CDs both as a leader and a guest. In 2004 Tina completed recording with legendry pianist Ray Bryant and a host of New York jazz players. These sessions at the Rudy Van Gelder studio's were released on 'Tina May sings the Ray Bryant Song Book'. "For musical taste, delicacy of interpretation and presentational flair Tina May has always been a hard act to follow. She is also completely at home in jazz, which isn't as common among high-profile singers as you might think" - Dave Gelly, Observer.
The raconteur and ever affable Alan Barnes has enjoyed a prolific career, playing and recording for many bands as well as dominating the British Jazz Awards over the years. "Alan Barnes is the most reliably entertaining, multi-skilled reed virtuoso on the UK scene" - John Fordham, Guardian.
