Tad Newton's Jazz Friends
This band seems to have appeared everywhere in the country except Nottingham, surprising for such a versatile group. Although inevitably the personnel has changed, Tad's Jazz Friends have been playing for well over 30 years and they have a repertoire as wide as any contemporary band. Trumpet player Gary Wood is the one member of the band who will be familiar as he played here with Richard Leach just a few months ago. Tad himself on trombone and Trevor Whiting on reeds complete the front line. Unusually these days the Friends don't have a banjo or guitar in their line up but a strong piano, Alan Haughton, sometime with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, makes up for that. Completing the rhythm section are Tomas Pederson from Denmark who has been with the band for over twenty years and Ronnie Fenn on drums. Whichever style of jazz rocks your boat, you are likely to be well catered for by this most popular band.
