Sunday 19th Nov. @ 8pm. £5.00. Paul Edis, solo piano + the Early Bird Band.
Established in May 2014 at the Lit and Phil as a Saturday morning work-shopping band, the name ‘Early Bird Band’ is in part in recognition of the early morning starts, and Charlie ‘Yardbird’ Parker. Already some fantastic young players have passed through the ranks. Drummer Matt MacKellar is now at Berklee College of Music, Boston. Guitarist Francis Tulip was another amazing talent. Francis has just started his second year on the degree course at Birmingham Conservatoire. The Early Bird’s trombonist Andrew Hedges plays in the Durham County Youth Big Band. Drummer Dylan Thompson (all of fifteen!) is another great prospect. Ben Lawrence plays piano and trumpet. Phillip Grobe plays piano and did a great job playing Ellington’s Sacred Music with Jambone at the Sage and Ushaw in July. Over the last three years, the Early Birds have performed at the Sage, Ushaw Jazz Festival and at numerous other venues. 
The current line-up of the Early Bird Band is as follows:
James Metcalf – trumpet; Ben Lawrence – trumpet & piano; Alex Shipsey – alto sax; Alex Thompson - alto sax; Andrew Hedges – trombone; Phillip Grobe – piano; Alex Shipsey – bass; Dylan Thompson – drums.

Paul Edis needs no introduction...
