Stompin' Dave's Blues3 at Quay Arts

Visitors to the Isle of Wight in July might like to head along to an evening of fantastic blues entertainment that is being organised by Quay Arts on Friday the 5th.

Stompin' Dave's Blues3 will kick off at 19:00 BST and is set to offer live performances from three of the UK's top roots/blues artists - Stompin' Dave Allen, Earl Jackson and Sam Kelly.

Each will bring their own individual style and flair to the stage and it promises to be an evening to savour for fans of laidback music and funky blues riffs.

Stompin' Dave is a master of all forms of American blues and will be playing guitar, banjo, harmonica, piano and providing vocals, although obviously not all at the same time.

He will be joined on the evening by well-known and respected guitarist and bassist Jackson, who comes to the evening after building a reputation for his innovative style, showcased in appearances on the BBC's Jonathan Ross Show.

Kelly is another important piece of the blues puzzle on the night, having been named UK blues drummer of the year on five occasions and also recently voted into the Blues in Britain 'Gallery of the Greats'.

Tickets for the show will cost £14 on the door and £12 if purchased in advance. It is sure to be a great evening of jazz and one enthusiasts will cherish.

Meanwhile, jazz fans looking for a fix of smooth jazz while taking an Isle of Wight getaway may be pleased to learn the acclaimed Sax Appeal will be performing at this year's Newport Jazz Weekend, running from June 19th to 21st.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports the festival will not only cater for those interested in listening to great jazz, but it will also offer visitors the chance to get involved through musical masterclasses and a host of jazz workshops.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801593106-ADNFCR
