Our opening night at Hampton Hub Club features our endlessly popular in house band The Martin Nickless All Star Jazz Tentett. This amazing band has been an integral part of the relaunch of our club and always creates a brilliant heart warming atmosphere as it features some of our finest and most experienced Jazz musicians united in their common passion for authentic 1950's Pacific Jazz. West Coast Jazz The music evolved and developed largely in the 1950's on the West Coast of America and relies on composition and arrangements rather than improvisation. Think Sun, surf and a more relaxed and formal style than standard Be Bop. Think of Chet Baker, Shorty Rogers and the Giants, Shelly Manne, Benny Goldson, Stanley Turrentine and many more..Think..it's about time we had a good night out and enjoyed some awesome music and a cool glass of wine or beer ( non alcoholic if you wish !) and food (optional) Martin Nickless, is an internationally respected musician. He is senior clarinettist, saxophonist, composer and arranger for many projects including the BBC's New Artist programme American Big Bands and beyond. Martin's discography includes both playing and arranging for the Chris Barber Big band, The Passadina Roof Orchestra, Glen Miller UK and many more. Some of the arrangements to be performed have been written by Martin himself, it is an area in which Martin is a recognised expert and excels and there are new scores in the pad. They capture the era of Clifford Brown,Gerry Mulligan,Miles Davis, Bob Florence. The solos will be stunning. He and his Stellar cast of Ten brilliant musicians are chomping at their mouthpieces (and other instruments) to thrill, relax, entertain and delight us on Wednesday Night and truly relaunch our new season. Watch them live https://youtu.be/ Doors at 6, show at 7 with two one hour sets. So exciting... KEEPING IT LIVE!
