JC And All That Jazz
Friday October 14th
A Burford special – John Coghlan’s QUO re-imagined
Something quite different – and we’re really excited about this.
John Coghlan, drummer for the Iconic band Status Quo for over twenty years, is a big supporter of Burford Jazz (you’ll nearly always see him there with wife Gillie – keeping a watchful eye on the drummer of the evening)!
So, we decide to ask John if he would help us create a show based around some of the popular songs of his old band and he’s agreed to play drums and host the event. We have invited dynamic pianist and arranger Alex Steele to pick a set of ‘Quo’ hits and re-imagine them as jazz pieces. AND – instead of wailing guitar solos, we’ve asked Ben Holder to be our guest artist to play violin solos over some arrangements and sing on others.
The rehearsals are sounding great and we promise you, with John playing mainly brushes on drums, double bass and piano re-harmonising the Quo hits then adding Ben’s energetic violin solo work – this will be one heck of an exciting and utterly unique concert.
£18.00 (in advance only, NO tickets on door)
Doors open at 19:30, show starts at 20:00
