Pianist and scholar Keith Nichols brings the music of the greatest names in jazz to life with The Cotton Club Band.
Their authentic recreations display passionate, accomplished musicianship, however the music is not simply a dull recreation of the originals but electrifying performances of a style of music still as exciting and current as when it was first performed. Their presentation is both informative and witty, creating shows that will satisfy the jazz fan and the novice alike.
The Cotton Club Band present the following selection of shows: Jazz Classics Revisited (a journey through the first half century of jazz), The Music Of Bix Beiderbecke, A Tribute To Fats Waller, The Louis Armstrong Legend, The Billie Holliday Songbook ( with Janice Day), Scott Joplin And The Ragtime Masters and Jazz Away From Home (telling the story of when jazz crossed the Atlantic and became a sensation throughout Europe).
The band is made up from some of the finest jazz musicians in the land and Keith and the band tour, play for concerts, jazz festivals and all manner of events throughout the UK and beyond.
