Great music – and you are invited!

Trez Fez to feature – Monday August 2nd

Trez Fez - Hope Uni 2009

 How quickly a month goes by. It doesnt seem 5 minutes since we welcomed Modjango back to Beaufort Jazz as our featured musicians in July and now its time to  prepare for next Monday.  This month we are pleased to announce that Beaufort favourites Trez Fez  have agreed to feature as our opening act for the evening. They will be accompanied by our special guest, the very talented Clifton Harrydass.

 Beaufort Jazz regulars are very familiar with Trez Fez and their melodic interpretations of gypsy jazz standards  – but it’s not often we get to hear a full set from them and the opportunity to share their extensive repertoire. A recent perusal of their playlist suggests that they can cover over 60 numbers with some ease.

Their distinctive and instantly recognisable sound incorporates flute and accordion to complement the traditional gypsy jazz guitar, giving them a very uplifting and enjoyable sound. Much of the Trez Fez success comes from their willingness to innovate and explore new ways to perform. This includes inviting guest artists into the lineup whenever possible, which gives us the opportunity to introduce Clifton Harrydass.

 A London-based steel pan legend, Clifton is currently in Lancashire to do some recording. Not allowing such an opportunity to go begging, Trez Fez have managed to invite him along to guest with them on Monday. Some of us had a sneak preview of their collaboration at the Mustard Club last Thursday and it has to be said that the resulting sound is splendid and definitely not to be missed.  

As it is Clifton’s first visit please give him a warm Beaufort Jazz welcome. Hopefully you will be able to attend another thoroughly enjoyable evening.  

Entry is only £1 to cover costs and  the music starts promptly at 8pm

Look forward to seeing you on Monday!
