Matt Palmer’s Gatsby Go- Getters 

Date: 8th February 2024

After the success of last year’s event we once again present a 1920s style party recreating the ambience of a Chicago speakeasy as frequented by such characters as Al Capone during the prohibition,  

Matt Palmer introduces his recently formed lineup to provide the music for this event which consists of Dave Leithead (trumpet & vocals), Jo Nutman (piano), Al Harris (bass) and Nick Ward (drums) who collaborate to celebrate their mutual passion for the music of the 1920’s and 1930’s and their desire to share this with partygoers and music-lovers alike. 

This era was known as the “Jazz Age” when there was such a rich heritage of great compositions known as “The Great American Song Book” which provided a musical backdrop to much frivolity and partying. The Gatsby Go-Getters recreate these golden sounds to evoke the good times of an earlier era. 

To help us all get into the party mood, 1920’s, Gatsby, Peaky Blinders etc. fancy dress is encouraged but optional and prohibition laws will be relaxed so fear not, the bar will open as normal!
