Preview: Emily Bacon's Good Time Gang @ The Globe Sunday September 17, 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM. New Orleans style traditional jazz

Emily Bacon (vocal); Peter Wright (trumpet); Liz Bacon (clarinet); Jeff Milner (trombone); Sarah Thatcher (banjo/tenor guitar); Spike Kennedy (bass); Paul Bacon (drums).
(Press release)
A special Sunday lunch time trad jazz session (bar food - bacon? - will be available).
Paul and Liz Bacon were formerly known as "The Mississippi Dreamboats". However, time has seen the band evolve and their daughter Emily is now heading up "The Good Time Gang". They are still rooted in the New Orleans style of jazz, surrounding themselves with musicians who are inspired by the Good Time Bands of the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Jeff Milner on trombone is a true exponent of the Jim Robinson style from the George Lewis Band and Liz continues to be inspired by George Lewis. Sarah Thatcher on banjo and tenor guitar works in a great partnership with Spike Kennedy on bass and Paul on the drums, playing the solid beat of the dance halls of New Orleans. Emily's vocal repertoire includes well-known jazz standards, blues and spirituals.
Admission £5 on the door.
