(Thurs 24th 8pm, £5/£4 adv)
Fresh from playing the sacred (St. Bart's Church) and the profane (The Greenbank), the Big R Big Band return to fill the stage of The Cube with a plethora of Richards and a soupçon of non-Richards. They bring with them a sense of verve and a choice selection of swinging big band tunes, including classics from the likes of Count Basie and Buddy Rich, plus a motley collection of others.
In addition, The Take Away Orchestra (TAO) is pleased to be making its Cube début, bringing an eclectic mix of swing, jazz, and Dutch cafe music featuring some band originals. TAO are Dominic Large (Guitar, Accordion & Composer), Erik Geelhoed (Harmonica, Bass & vocals), Deb Evans (Vocals & lyricist) and Simon Greening (Alto Sax & loud shirts) http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=134778169873857&v=wall
