Jazz returns to Grantham Conservative Club
Grantham Conservative Club proudly presents the Bryan Corbett Quartet on Thursday (February 21) night.
As well performing under his own name, Bryan has been performing and recording for world renowned artists and bands such as the Brand New Heavies, Tony Christie, Ben E. King, Us3, Alesha Dixon, Ella Eyre, Sigala, Sam Bailey, Brian McFadden, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight, Gary US Bonds, Ruby Turner, Jan Smit, Siedah Garrett, Jocelyn Brown, Funk De Nite – the list goes into a who's who in the jazz and commercial world.
He has toured and performed around the globe as a guest artist and, with his own bands, regularly performs festivals, concert halls and clubs throughout the UK, and has features on the soundtrack to major commercials for Fiat 500, Iceland and Panasonic.
Bryan is featured as a soloist or in horn sections on numerous recordings and has also been featured soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Big Band Małopolski in Krakow, Poland. He was a winner of the 'Jerwood Rising Star' at Cheltenham International Festival and his Quartet has previously won the poll winner prize at Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
Bryan is not only a great performer of the jazz standards repertoire but an artist who pushes the boundaries, writing and performing original works with his various line-ups.
Having returned from a period of ill-health, the Bryan Corbett Quartet is very much up and running. Bryan is back stronger, better and with something to say.
Bryan prides this on being a group and a band not just about him up front.
The Bryan Corbett Quartet features two long-standing members of the band in Neil Bullock on drums and Ben Markland on basses, with the wonderful talents of Al Gurr on piano and electric keys.
Doors open at 7pm and the band begins at 8.30pm, with late bar opening. Entry is £12, paying at the door. All are welcome.
