Event description

Description

Join BEN WATERS with special guest DEREK NASH for a high octane show covering the history of boogie, blues, R&R and jazz from its origins to the modern day.

Nominated by Jools Holland as one of his 10 favourite piano players of all time, Ben Waters’ performances have been described by the London Times as “like a bouncing castle for grown-ups”.

Ben Waters has played in over 25 countries in venues including London’s Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall & Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club; the Sydney Opera House and New York’s Iridium Theatre. He regularly tours Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, the Caribbean and the US. Playing with ‘flair & bravado’ (Birmingham Post) Ben has performed/recorded regularly with artists of the calibre of the Rolling Stones, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, PJ Harvey, Jools Holland, Leo Sayer, Ray Davies and many more.

Derek Nash, renowned for energetic, vibrant, passionate & charismatic performances on saxophone has been a featured member of the Jools Holland Orchestra since 2004. Regarded as “at the forefront of the British jazz movement”, Derek has been described a “one of the most versatile saxophonists in the UK today” (The Guardian). A member of Ronnie Scott’s Blues Explosion he has appeared live or on TV with the likes of Eric Clapton, Amy Winehouse, Paul McCartney, Solomon Burke, Annie Lennox & Tom Jones.

Supported by Melbourne favourites “Sweet” Felicia (bass/vocals) and Ashley Davies (sticks), Ben Waters' “flair & bravado” (Birmingham Post) on piano & vocals and Derek Nash’s vibrant sax promise a musical experience to remember.

So well received was the band’s debut at the 2018 Port Fairy Festival that they, uniquely, have been invited back in 2019.
