Emily Bacon’s Goodtime Jazz Gang

Liz Bacon on clarinet and husband Paul on drums have been around for many years playing their New Orleans style of jazz although we haven’t, until now, had the pleasure of their company at Nottingham. More recently they have proudly assembled a band round daughter Emily and it’s this group we’ll be seeing next. Emily, on piano and vocals, will be fronting the band which has other well known New Orleans style musicians; Peter Wright on cornet, Jeff Milner on trombone and Sarah Thatcher on banjo. Finally all rounder bass player Spike Kennedy completes the line up. Young jazz musicians need our support to keep traditional jazz alive so be there on 8th November to see a band with a fast growing reputation.
