Keith Nicholls' Blue Six Plus at the Saville Exchange North Shields

An enjoyable, easy listen to music of the 1920s as it was played back then by Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang and Adrian Rollini.
Tonight those roles were taken, respectively, by Mike Piggott (violin), Spats Langham (gtr, bjo, uke, vcl) and Frans Sjostrom (bs sax), supported by Norman Fields (alt, ten, c-mel, clt), Nick Ward (dms) and led by Keith Nicholls (pno, acc, vcl) with cameo appearances by Mike Durham (tpt) and Paul Munnery (tmb).
Lots of vintage tunes, and by vintage I mean numbers that go back to, and here I quote Mike Piggott, 'When Long John Silver had both legs and an egg on his shoulder'!
There was more humour and lots of good playing all round with a Venuti/Lang duet by Mike Piggott and Spats, "Wild Dog," that was particularly appealing.
A decent turn out too.
