Derek Nash & Martin Dale
Derek Nash is embarking on tour alongside the superb Tenor saxophonist Martin Dale and his quartet in February 2022.
Derek’s long relationship with Martin started with Be Bop star John Burch’s Kentish Octet, where they performed, toured and recorded together many times.
Their swinging bravado, showmanship and humour join together for a superb evening of Jazz standards in a style that remember great sparring Saxophone heroes like Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes, or Zoot Sims and Al Cohn.
Derek is a full time member of the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra since 2004, has led Sax Appeal for over forty years, leads his award winning Acoustic Quartet, fronts the funk/fusion band Protect the Beat, the Latin band Picante, the “Some Kinda Wonderful” show and is a member of the Ronnie Scott’s Blues Explosion.
He is renowned for his energetic, vibrant, passionate and charismatic performances on all four saxophones from sonorous baritone to souring soprano.
£5 on the door, cash or card. Please call the B-Bar on 01752 242021 to book a table.
