Mon Jun 13, 08:00 PM The Geoff Simkins Quartet @ Studio Theatre at the Everyman, Regent Street, Cheltenham. GL50 1HQ

It’s always a great pleasure to welcome back Geoff Simkins, but this time, because of the line-up it will be really special.

Geoff being the horn player of a very musical family, in fact many of you will know his pianist brother, Pete, Cheltenham resident and Club member. Geoff started on drums progressed to alto sax and went professional in ’77. Since then he has played all over, teaches in Sussex University, as well as Czech and Glamorgan Summer Schools. Again one of those guys who’s played with everybody in the business.

On piano tonight a very familiar name to R3 listeners Nikki Iles. Nikki last played for us way back in the Pillar Room days, so it’s good to have her back. Nikki came to the piano via Dad’s L.Ps, harmonica, clarinet and now an impressive C.V. and experience. Again one of those guys who’s played……………!

Another fantastic treat for bass lovers, Dave Green, one of our favourite bassists. He has been a couple of times lately with Gareth Williams playing the tunes of Bill Evans, so, let’s face it anyone who could play a bit like Scott LaFaro must be pretty good!

On Drums tonight we have the Professor of Jazz – Drums/Percussion at the Royal Academy of Music no other than Martin France. At the risk of sounding repetitive, Martin has also played with everybody.

So, all in all, this will be an evening not to be missed, so, book early, it is the Studio, so seats are limited.

Tickets are £16.00 from the box office: 01242 572573 or on line: www.everymantheatre.org.uk
