Keith Nichols is Coming To a Town (or two)

Just a reminder that the wonderful ragtime and stride pianist Professor Keith Nichols will be appearing at the Saville Exchange, North Shields this Thursday (September16th) at 8.00pm with the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings. Again, please note it's Thursday, not our usual Friday, as this was the only night we could grab Keith on his travels. Also, in response to many requests, we will feature more of Keith's sparkling solo piano in this concert, as well as numbers with the WJRK. Keith first guested with the band at the High Point Hotel, Whitley Bay, back in 1990, the first of many such happy musical encounters; so we thought it would be fun to recreate that very special evening, playing most of the tunes we played on that long-ago night. The band on Thursday will be Mike Durham, trumpet; Derek Fleck, reeds; Brian Chester, trombone; Keith Stephen, banjo/guitar; Phil Rutherford, sousaphone and Pete Soulsby, drums. Hope to see you there! Mike.
For those who have an insatiable appetite for Professer Nichols he also struts his stuff on the Southside at South Shields where he appears with John Crocker at The Customs House for 'An Evening With Fats Waller' on Tuesday Sept 21, 7:30pm.
