Ilminster Arts Centre: Mike Denham’s 25th Speakeasy,with Ben Cummings

November 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Mike Denham’s 25th Speakeasy

Mike’s “Speakeasy” sessions have been running for thirteen years, and nearly all of them have sold out

As well being a. brilliant pianist, playing across a wide variety of vintage styles, Mike is a great story teller with an entertaining sense of humour which adds hugely to his act

Mike is a fine solo pianist and is always a pleasure to listen to, with an interesting and tasteful repertoire of American jazz from the early years of the century through to 50’s Rock and Roll

His in-depth knowledge of early jazz is second to none, and his fascination with his subject is clear for all to see

For the  Speakeasy  sessions, he chooses a well-known name and they play as a duet, and this time he has chosen Ben Cummings. Ben has established a formidable reputation as one of Britain’s finest trumpet players, and has played with most of the top UK names

Ben plays and sings with a very mellow sound, reminiscent of the great Chet Baker. He has played at the IAC  several times, with various bands, both traditional and mainstream, and each time he has greatly impressed us all

Ben’s singing and playing combined with Mike’s many distinctive piano styles will make for a fascinating evening’s entertainment
