Jazz club celebrates 35th anniversary

Not many jazz clubs can claim to have promoted jazz 50 nights a year for 35 years.

Scarborough’s can.

The founders - drummer Dennis Hitch, guitarist Roy Elsey, bassist Bob Walker and keys player Mike Gordon - were just looking for somewhere to play, which is how Scarborough Jazz started.

Dennis and Roy are now playing at the great jazz club in the sky but Mike and Bob are still part of the resident trio, with Tom Townsend on drums.

The club was launched in 1984 at Elvenhome, which later became the Stage Door and is now a storeroom in Clinton’s card shop in the town centre. Its other homes were the Mermaid (part of the Futurist complex), the Golden Ball, the Ramshill, Beiderbecke’s, Scholars and, for two spells, the Cask, where it has been settled since 2007.

Audiences of between 40 and 60 attend Wednesday sessions at the Cask. “Musicians are always commenting on the great atmosphere and how they love playing here”, says Mike, who is chair of Scarborough Jazz. “They are impressed by how attentive our audiences are, without being too formal”.

He adds: “We have had some great highlights including Peter King, Alan Barnes, Martin Taylor, Dave O’Higgins, Clark Tracey, Don Weller, Dave Newton, Jim Mullen, Snake Davis, Stacey Kent and, before they became famous, Clare Teal and Anita Wardell”.

The club’s policy is to actively promote some of the country’s most exciting young bands including Partikel with Duncan Eagles, Yoruba (part of Jazz Yorkshire's Jazz Futures project), the Matt Anderson Quartet, Jazz Aesthetic (a Hull University 12-piece led by Peter Elsdon) and Artephis.

Jazz musicians of all standards have an opportunity to perform at players’ sessions which take place two or three times a year; the next one is on 21 August. Professional film maker Dennis Lowe made an outstanding 13-minute film about the club which has shots of the annual jazz festival. It can be seen on the website www.scarboroughjazz.co.uk. Dennis is famous for his special visual effects in The Talented Mr Ripley and The English Patient.

The club is well aware that its future depends on support from local fans, both at club nights and behind the scenes. Newcomers receive a friendly welcome at club nights.

A free party celebrating the club’s 35th anniversary was held at the Spa in July. Sharing the bill were Dennis Rollins, the New York Brass Band, the Mike Gordon Trio with Kate Peters and Ian Chalk, Social Oven, Hip Hop Jazz Jam (standing in for AC3), Vibeology and DJ Mark Thompson’s Jazz Jukebox. The Sun Court in the afternoon and the Promenade Lounge in the evening were packed, Mike says. “Adrian Riley did a great job organising the events”.

Just as the club was spawned out of the founders’ love of jazz, the town’s annual jazz festival, at the Spa in September, emerged from Mike’s devotion to the genre and is now firmly established on the national jazz-map. The town owes a huge debt of gratitude to Mike for his unswerving work in promoting jazz. In 2017 the festival received a Parliamentary award for the best jazz festival. The competition included the London, Manchester and Cheltenham jazz festivals.

Mike is quick to point out that the club’s continued success depends on the support of  the committee and key individuals. They include David Kennard for writing programme copy and reviews of highlight events; Marian Gordon for her unstinting work behind the scenes, mailing out information and preparing poster content; treasurer Tom Mellor; secretary, soundman and bassist Bob Walker, who puts in an enormous amount of work prior to, and during, each performance; and Sarah Dyson for the club’s Facebook and Twitter presence.

Bill and the Belles

Bill and the Belles will play vintage, old-time country and vaudeville at Woodend in Scarborough on 27 August.

The group puts its own spin on a golden era of American music, specifically the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, says promoter Chris Lee.

“Lead singer and guitarist Kris Truelsen’s distinctive tenor anchors the project while the trio’s harmonies gleam against a backdrop of banjo, fiddle, accordion, ukulele and clarinet”, Chris says.

The band takes its name from 1920s performers Bill and Belle Reed, who recorded the songs Old Lady and the Devil and You Shall be Free in Johnson City, Tennessse, where the band is based.

Tickets cost £12 and can be booked by ringing 384500.

THE CLOUGHTON RAT PACK

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Fri 16th August 2019

The Cloughton Rat Pack are a group of five local lads - Paul Mintoft (Sog), Steve Chambers, Tim Osbourne, Clive Welburn and Jeremy (Jez) Pratt - who all have a love of the sounds and humour of the famous Rat Pack - Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.

The show features many of the songs made famous by these huge American icons. All backed by the fantastic King Willy's Big Band, under the direction of Will Oseland. There will also be madcap humour and antics in abundance!

The Cloughton Rat Pack have donated all the proceeds from their previous shows to local charities. They have raised thousands over the last couple of years. Tonight's lucky charities are Saint Catherine's and Scarborough YMCA.

RAT PACK taken from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The RAT PACK was a super-group of actors originally centred on their leader, Frank Sinatra. Later it was revealed by Sinatra that Joey Bishop headed the bunch. By the 1960's, it was the name used by the press and the general public to refer to a later variation of the group that called itself "the Summit" or "the Clan", featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop; they appeared together on stage and in films in the early 1960s, including the movies Ocean's 11, Sergents 3, and Robin and the 7 Hoods (in the last film, Bing Crosby replaced Lawford). Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were regarded as the group's lead members.

Years and Years

It has been a whirlwind four years since Years & Years’ 2015 debut smash hit album ‘Communion’ landed with the massive hit singles ‘King’, ‘Desire’ and ‘Shine’.

The band followed it up with last year’s breath-taking ‘Palo Santo’ which spawned the singles ‘Sanctify’, Top 10 hit ‘If You’re Over Me’ and ‘All for You’.

The album was a Top 3 hit in the UK and topped the Billboard Dance/Electronic Album Chart in the US.

Years & Years – Olly Alexander, Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Türkmen – are famed for their electrifying live shows. They are the reigning ‘GQ Live Act of The Year’ and have built a massive fanbase around the globe.

And it’s been a brilliant start to 2019 for the band. Recent single ‘Play’ with Jax Jones went Top 10 in the UK alongside a nomination for Best British Band at this year’s BRIT Awards

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes pioneered the alt-country and Americana music movement in Australia, beginning with 2010 debut album Ballad of a Young Married Man. 

The band have played just about every major festival on the Australian calendar and have toured with the likes of Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Joan Armatrading, Shawn Colvin and The North Mississippi Allstars, just to name a few. 

Even on large festival stages Lachlan and the band create the feeling of a warm, intimate space - the emphasis is on the storytelling (as much between songs as during them) and the 'fourth wall' is most definitely broken. The band is well known for spontaneous sets

CLIFF RICHARD

TICKETS ON SALE 10AM - 18/11/18

CLIFF RICHARD

TO RETURN FOR SUMMER 2019 GIG AT SCARBOROUGH OPEN AIR THEATRE

The UK’s most successful hitmaker, Cliff Richard, is returning to Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2019.

It is announced today that Cliff will headline Europe’s largest open air arena on Wednesday June 26.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 at scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

The show marks a return to the Yorkshire coast for the music legend following his sell-out show at Scarborough OAT in 2017 and comes as the singer is celebrating the 60th anniversary of his first single Move It! being released.

Marking this significant milestone, Warner's Music is releasing a new album of completely original songs. The album Rise Up is Cliff's 104th official UK release,  although it is the first album for 14 years, since 2004's Something's Goin' On, that features completely new material rather than Cliff's unique interpretation of classic songs.

Cliff is the second 2019 headliner to be revealed for Scarborough OAT following the announcement earlier today that Kylie Minogue will perform at the Yorkshire coast venue on Thursday August 1.

The announcements mark the start of the 2019 season and follow a record breaking 2018 which saw the venue attract more than 90,000 music fans.

Venue programmer Peter Taylor, director of promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “Cliff Richard is without a doubt a legend of the music industry. He has enjoyed massive success for 60 years and wows his audience time and time again.

“We have worked with Cliff on numerous shows and tours and are absolutely delighted to be working with him again, and especially to be bringing him back to Scarborough.

“The crowds loved Cliff in Scarborough in 2017 and I have no doubt they will have an absolute ball once again watching and hearing their hero perform the hits that made him a household name as well as his new material which is sure to be a massive hit.”

Cliff’s new album Rise Up will be released on November 23. The album’s title track is currently riding high in the vinyl charts and is his 145th official UK release, showing that Cliff continues to be a much-loved music legend, and someone who is very capable of entertaining with great energy and passion.

In 60 years, Cliff has recorded almost 1,300 song titles, composed 100 songs, achieved 14 number one singles (40 Top 5, 68 Top 10, and 96 Top 20), and seven number one albums (28 Top 5, 44 Top 10, and 53 Top 20). Move It!, where it all started, is the most recorded song in Cliff's back catalogue, numbering 23 different versions.

Able to change with the times and tastes and remaining hugely popular, Cliff nonetheless has stayed faithful to his rock and roll roots throughout. Because, when many people would be thinking of retiring or settling down to a quieter life, Cliff Richard continues to draw massive crowds to his concerts and regularly reaches the top ten with his albums. Not bad for someone who critics thought wouldn't last way back in 1958!

Tickets for Cliff Richard’s headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 viawww.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com or from Scarborough Open Air Theatre Box Office (01723 818111) and the Discover Yorkshire Coast Tourism Bureau (01723 383636).

RAF 2019 Anniversary Tour

RAF 2019 Anniversary Tour

cache_1304943.jpg

With a series of 10 charity concerts, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust is pleased to announce their 2019 Anniversary Tour will start at the Spa in Scarborough on Friday 17th May. 

 

Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the charity, and in accordance with its charitable objects, this special 2019 tour will once again be ‘raising welfare funds by the performance of live music by Royal Air Force musicians’. Indeed, despite being one of the newest and smallest of the family of RAF Service charities, with no employees and managed by just three trustees, over these years the charity has established itself as one of the most significant organisers of Royal Air Force charity concerts, whilst also donating in excess of £60,000 to various Service charities.

 

Malcolm Goodman says that “following the success of the RAF Centenary Concert in Lincoln Cathedral and other RAF100 events in 2018, it is a privilege to present so many concerts by some of the finest military musicians in the country. With performances by the Central Band of the RAF, Band of the RAF College and Band of the RAF Regiment, along with RAF Swing Wing and the Royal Air Force Squadronaires, this will be a very special celebration year for the RAF Music Charitable Trust.”

 

Following the concert in Scarborough, the RAF bands will perform in Newark, Doncaster, Weston Super Mare, and uniquely in the cathedrals of Exeter, Chester and Sheffield, along with a series of three concerts in London.

 

The charity was established by Sergeant (Ret.) Malcolm Goodman MBE who was then a serving member of the Band of the RAF Regiment, and also Public Relations and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services. In his role as Honorary Administrator, from the charity’s home in Newark he is supported by two other volunteer trustees, Warrant Officer (Ret.) Trevor McDonald and Sergeant (Ret.) John Baigent. As former RAF musicians, all three trustees are also veterans of the First Gulf War, having served together on active service at Field Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during the 1991 conflict.

 

Following the appointment of former Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB CBE, the RAF Music Charitable Trust was registered with the Charity Commission in 2004.
