Friday Night at Quay Arts

Downstairs :

  • 7.45-8.30 Jazz DJ Jim Kerr
  • 8.30-10.30 Gary Plumley's Alleycats

Upstairs:

  • 8.15-10.15 Shades of Ellington quartet
  • 10.15-11.30 Jam session

A great evening is in store at Quay Arts, as two top Island-based acts are supported by jazz DJ Jim Kerr, and a jam session hosted by the Jim Thorn Trio. The two bands will play staggered sets which will allow the audience to move between gigs and see a bit of everything.

Gary Plumley (tenor sax) is a regular member of Sax Appeal and his broad, soulful sound was often heard alongside Terry Callier and Snowboy and the Latin Section. Gary's soul/funk project on the Island, the Alleycats, now features the excellent George Bone (hammond organ) and Island-based drum maestro Rupert Brown.

Upstairs, the very popular Shades of Ellington quartet are led by bandleader and renowned double bassist Jon Thorne. Accompanied by the inventive Chris Jones (drums) and masterful Tom Barker (piano), the quartet is completed by vocalist Olivia Cure, a recent but very welcome addition to the local jazz scene. The quartet produce imaginative re-workings of Ellington compositions.
