I’m always fascinated to ask club proprietors about special gigs they really look forward to. And here’s an evening which 606 proprietor Steve Rubie has already marked down as a goody. On July 22nd, as part of the Earls Court Festival Tim Garland will interview Bill Bruford about his autobiography, and then play. More details to follow, but bookings are already open.
And among forthcoming gigs in the next few weeks, Steve singled out Sting’s guitarist Dominic Miller next Wednesday 28th April with percussionist Rhani Krija, the keyboard player from Level 42 Mike Lindup and bassist Nicolas Fiszman.
And then there’s the winner of the 2009 Hungarian Montreux jazz guitar competition Roland Balogh on May 4th with one hell of a band: top drawer pianist Jim Watson, Laurence Cottle on bass and Liane Carroll’s Mark Fletcher on drums.
And on Sunday lunchtime May 23rd there’s the big band of drummer Matt Skelton, often to be found propelling symphony orchestras. To hear a big band at the Six is the authentic close-up experience. Enjoy!
