C H R I S T M A S P A R T Y Carl Sinclair Duo with Jeremy Huggett & Simon Smith

Christmas Party Fun.  Mince pies, crackers, surprise present raffle, Christmas Hamper Raffle draw, and lots of fun.

One of our club favourite acts, Carl Sinclair (piano) will make a return visit to us alongside Howard Smith on Drums to help us kick the Christmas spirit into a swinging time.

Carl comes from a family of strong musicians he first started playing the piano when he was only six years old.  He had classical lessons to the age of twelve (just listening and learning to copy the sounds) and went on to win ‘Young Musician of the Year’.  A few years later, he switched to a teacher that gave more direction on improvisation, jazz and pop.  By the age of eighteen, he’d mastered the art of playing boogie-woogie piano – relying on a strong left hand and a quick technique.  Since 2007, he has become one of the resident pianist at Jools Holland’s live music venue ‘The Jam House’ in Birmingham.  But he’s also very privileged to have performed at some of the country’s top music festivals and theatres and at countless weddings/private parties – and even done a few for some celebrities!

By special arrangement will be joined by swinging, versatile reedsman Jeremy Huggett (saxophone, flute, vocals), also a club friend and favourite alongside Simon Smith (bass).  This session promises to deliver a real swinging, feel good, festive, great fun party.  Be there or be square!!  It is as simple as that!!  The doors will open at 12:00, so if you want ‘your seat’ be there early.  Seats cannot and will not be reserved.  Strictly first come, first served.
