Ilminster Arts Centre – Jazz, Mike Denham Speakeasy

June 10 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Mike Denham’s “Speakeasy”

with, from Australia, MICHEAL McQUAID

“Hits an authentic groove and holds it, building successfully as Hugh Masakela or Abdullah Ibrahim’s bands do.” Gramophone

Michael McQuaid plays jazz and swing from the 1920s and 30s with remarkable energy and originality. He is an Australian multi-instrumentalist, regularly performing on clarinet, saxophones, trumpet and even occasionally piano.

The music will no doubt be vintage and swinging, and will comprise tunes and songs from anything up to a hundred years ago, a lot of which we will be familiar with, but, as always with these “Speakeasies”, there will be many which we have never heard of.

Where do they come from ?  Well, I’m sure the two Micheals will tell us that in their amusing way, along with the stories of their origins back in the early days of jazz and pop.  There may well be a four handed piano duet or two included.
