Tell me you have never descended these stairs (above), and I will -er- suggest that this is the month to tie a knot in your handkerchief and remember to check the 606 out. Because Steve Rubie has a truly spectacular programme for June.
I particularly fancy the look (in reverse date order) of:
-Guitar giant Jim Mullen’s Benefit with a host of stars on Monday 29th
-Singer Claire Martin‘s Charity gig with Barb Jungr and Mari Wilson on Sunday 21st
-Pianist Stan Tracey‘s Trio on Thursday June 18th.
-Get-everywhere pianist Geoff Castle‘s Birthday Bash on Monday 8th
–Iain Ballamy on tenor saxophone with the Gareth Williams Trio on Weds 3rd
But there’s also (random order …)
-Students the Royal Academy of Music on both 2nd and 30th
-Keyboardist and all-round good guy Miko Giedroyc‘s Gospellers on Sunday 7th Lunchtime
–Christine Tobin singing starrily on 7th evening
–Liane Carroll being unique and spectacular on Sunday 28th
–Trudy Kerr and Geoff Gascoyne – quality – on Saturday 27th
–Brandon Allen (tenor) and Robbie Robson (trumpet) storming on Saturday 6th.
And I still managed to miss out Bobby Wellins, playing better than ever….Mica Paris, Denny Ilett….
GET ON DOWN!
