A day of jazz from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Performed by the Keith Nichols Memorial Orchestra led by Michael McQuaid. The afternoon will see groups from the main orchestra presenting samples of small band jazz from the period. The evening concert will involve the whole eighteen-piece orchestra, bringing us the music of Paul Whiteman, Fletcher Henderson, and Benny Goodman with echoes of the Cotton Club in its heyday.

Keith Nichols, an internationally-recognised authority, performer, and arranger of the ‘Golden Age’ of jazz, and a long-time friend of Pershore Jazz, sadly became a victim of Covid 19 during the pandemic. The final item on the programme, a tribute to his memory, is likely to be a poignant performance.

This event is organised by Pershore Jazz.
