SONGS, SATIRE and SALSA!

Charter Hall, St Ives Corn Exchange

Saturday 13 July 2024 @7:30pm


The NEXT STAGE presents an evening of Songs, Satire and Salsa!


The evening features three very different yet complementary acts.

Viva La Tradición: This Cambridge based salsa band is really hot and guaranteed to get your hips swaying. The ten piece band plays Latin music to perfection and will even throw in a free salsa dance lesson to get you in the groove!


Ellie Walker: The piano led ‘folk pop nuggets’ of Ellie Walker have been captivating listeners both live and on record since late 2022. Ellie’s soulful and colourful songs are sprinkled with catchy melodies, lustrous harmonies and thoughtful, honest lyrics.


Vince Taylor: Despite  years of experience in the music business singer-songwriter Vince “Too Tall” Taylor is still trying to make sense of a confusing world. If you want to hear his views on hand luggage, dead cats, nuisance calls and beach huts then take a listen to his original, quirky blasts of  nonsense.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW….

THE MUSIC OF BURT BACHARACH

EPIC STUDIO 112-114 MAGDELEN STREET, NORWICH

SUNDAY 8 September 2024 @ 7:00PM


Anyone who had a heart will struggle to walk on by when a special evening of music celebrating the songwriting genius of Burt Bacharach and Hal David takes place at the Epic Studio, Magdalen Street, Norwich  on Sunday 8 September 2024, starting at 7:00pm


The Nigel Bennett Orchestra will take the audience on a journey through the outstanding songbook of the pair, which added a cool and jazzy flair to the music of the 60s and 70s with tunes made famous by Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield, Sandy Shaw, Aretha Franklin, Gene Pitney, and the Walker Brothers, to name just a few.


The Nigel Bennett Orchestra is being supported in the first half by ‘Shakey Breaks The Ice’, a jazz trio featuring Trevor Barlow (clarinet and saxophone), Bert Stilly (accordion), and Hugh Boyde (guitar). They will be playing an eclectic mix of jazz, cafe, gypsy and klezmer.
