Three bands, one love for jazz.
Caribbean Jazz Collective
The CJC performs Caribbean music, mixing the flavour and rhythms into a sound that is modern but always being influenced by classic jazz, with an Island twist. Audiences are delighted by this approach and, whether the audience has a Caribbean background or are simply jazz fans, CJC loves to share their music and their passion.
Andrew Stewart: bassist, Neil Brathwaite: This Saxophonist, Gareth Burgess: Steel Drum (Steel Pan) player, Eddie Bullen: Pianist, Joaquin Hidalgo Nunez: Drummer and Percussionist.
Growler came together as a quintet of musicians who share their love of jazz, funk, rock, blues and latin rhythms. The music is genre-defying and each performance is fresh and filled with engaging groove.
Tony Smith: Guitars, Joe Palawan: Keyboards, Joaquin Hidalgo: Drums, Paul Cafarelli: Bass and Mark Daniels: Percussion.
