The Dick Pearce Quartet @ The Victory Club, Burlington House, Lypiatt Road, Cheltenham. GL50 2SY

Tonight we welcome back an old friend, Dick Pearce on trumpet. Dick comes to us via a route which started in the Boy’s Brigade, a brass band, an army bugle and finished up in Ronnie’s. But it didn’t finish at Ronnie’s. Dick has gone on to work with the great and the good of jazz and happily with Cheltenham Jazz tonight!

Another old friend, on piano we have Dave Newton. Always brilliant and always worth listening to.

Tom Hill on bass, again, worth listening to for his musical and sympathetic rock solid foundation for the group.

That also applies to our drummer tonight, Simon Radford. Simon is never flashy but he believes passionately that drums should be a musical backing to what is going on.

All this in the splendour of the Victory Club ballroom, don’t miss it!
