New York Comes to The Globe

Yes! New York, New York,  is one of the songs that you'll hear at the Globe on Thursday as the Indigo Jazz Voices take to the stage to sing, (individually) a selection of swing, bop, blues and Latin. They'll be accompanied by excellent local musicians Alan Law (piano); Paul Grainger (bass); and Abbie Finn (drums).

The singers that you'll hear are Jenny Lingham, Jen Errington, David Edgar, Carrie McCullock,  and newcomer Paul Close. And lots of other songs, including Puttin' On The Ritz; Let It Snow; She's A Woman and I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm.   

Wait, it gets better! There's mince pies and nibbles to be had at this IVJ Christmas do, and all for the meagre price of £5. So get yourself along, remember, The Globe, Thursday December 12 at 7.30pm.
