LITTLE RUMBA IN CONCERT with JESS HALL
At the Silvester Horne Institute, Church Stretton
One of the Most Popular Bands of the Marches,
A warm welcome back to Little Rumba, one of the most popular bands of the Marches, well known for not only their originality but also their humour. Their musicians come from different musical genres and present a unique blend of styles.
John Hymas, (violin, viola and accordion) founder member of Hoover the Dog, Pete Mustill (singer and Guitarist) led formation of the Tango Band, and also joined with Hugh Colvin to gain top third album in the Czech charts! Hugh is the bands saxophonist producing exciting material, and Jacqui Savage stimulating bass player who has worked with a series of border bands.
For this concert they will be joined by fabulous Welsh singer and song writer Jess Hall who also features on their album “Café Perdido” as well as performing with the band “Poisson Rouge” on the video.
The band write all their own music and over the years have developed a recognizable house style owing debts to East European, to South America, as well as jazz and blues. In fact when I heard Poisson Rouge being played, I could hear shades of Sidney Bechet playing the haunting Petit Fleur which was being played all over Paris when I stayed there many years ago.
The band will deliver great melodies, infectious beats that will have your feet tapping as well.
Tickets: £12 or under 18’s £6 are available from: The Outdoor Depot, 1 Sandford Avenue, Church Stretton, and from Church Stretton Town Council Office, or on-line here.
