A JAZZ collective from Guildford will next month (September, 2013) be performing at two evenings of live music dedicated to the genre at a bar in the town.
The Jack Noke Jazz Collective will be playing at Bar des Arts, which is located opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Millbrook, on September 11 and 25 from 7.30pm.
Vincent Toner, Saxophonist in the band, said: “We’re really excited to be playing during the bar’s Jazz Jam. The events have proved extremely popular in the past and we have discovered some great musicians along the way.
“People are welcome to come along on the night to enjoy the music or they can bring their instruments along with them and join us on-stage for an improvised jam.”
The collective formed in October, 2011 and consists of keyboard player Jack Noke, saxophonist Vincent Toner, bassist Mike Bennett, drummer Tony Bevan and guitarist Alex Sim.
