Jeff Barnhart’s Waller Band

As well as recreating the sound of Fats Waller’s band two years ago, Jeff Barnhart entertained us with a wealth of stories about the man and his tunes Jeff has been bringing various bands to Nottingham every year for more years than we can count and his Waller band proved as popular as any of them. The pesonnel will be the same as last time, all frequent visitors and all much loved. Gary Wood, last seen here with Tad Newton last year, will be on trumpet, flugelhorn and taking over vocals when Jeff gets tired (imagine that!). Two old favourites who were part of Graham Smith’s Allsorts, John Hallam on reeds and Bill Coleman (also here last month) on bass will support Jeff’s piano and vocals aided and abetted by classic drummer Nick Ward. A fun night in store.
