Much travelled and returning from two tours to Australia and a memorable one to California, MARTIN BENNETT’S experience is incalculable. For many years an outstanding trombonist, he now leads from the keyboard, keeping his renowned vocals as part of the programme. The OLD GREEN RIVER BAND’S line-up will be: MARTIN BENNETT, piano/vocals; JOHN FINCH, trombone; STAN WILLIAMS, trumpet; SARAH SPENCER, reeds; HOWARD WORTHINGTON, bass; and BILL BUCK, drums. This is a hot Dixieland/Swing band with a mix of old heads and young blood, but with the shared intention of playing top class music with integrity and passion.
