" Mike, a phenomenal bass player, has become a well known artist both in the South West and nationally. It was his exceptional band who were heard here last year - probably the best band of any genre to have ever played here. Even our secretary, who allegedly hates jazz, loved it! Since then, however, he has put together a new band with some of the best known Jazz names in the South-West. If they are half as good as last year’s band then this evening should not be missed! "
