Gaz Hughes Trio
We first welcomed Jazz & Pop Session Drummer Gaz Hughes and his fine trio to Lichfield in last year’s programme.
It was a brilliant evening featuring some of the finest jazz musicians from the North West of the UK, and so we’re delighted to welcome the trio back once again, but this time featuring music from their latest album, ‘Nuclear Bebopalypse’! As Gaz says: Warning - contains dangerous levels of bebop.
Gaz Hughes is a renowned jazz drummer and band leader, who first gained wide public attention as the original drummer in the Matthew Halsall Band.
As a sideman, Gaz has performed with an impressive array of jazz artists, both in the UK and internationally, including Scott Hamilton, Harry Allen, Marshal Allen, Greg Abate, Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams, Mark Nightingale, Tony Kofi, Ian Shaw, and many others.
Doors open at 7.15pm and the event runs from 7.45-9.45pm with a short interval.
