XPQ at The Everyman Irving Studio Theatre, Regent Street Cheltenham, GL50 1HQ.

XPQ – What in earth is that? I hear you ask, simple, Xenopoulos, Price Quartet. Aka known as the Nigel Price Organ Trio + Vasiilis. Get it?

Vasilis Xenopoulos was last here with Nigel in the summer of 2017 and he is the man bringing a wonderfully contemporary sax sound to the already rather wonderful sound of the organ trio. Vasilis was born and raised in Athens, settled here in 2002 and has been hard bopping around ever since!

Nigel, being one of the highest acclaimed guitarists in the country is welcomed back as is his old mate , Ross Stanley on organ. It’s funny how guitar and organ have become a classic act, they just work together like strawberries and cream!

On drums tonight, a new name (I think!) Joel Barford. Joel is a 21 year old freelance drummer based in London. Joel is primarily a jazz drummer and has played with a variety of people, most importantly, the Nigel Price Organ Trio, so he should fit right in!

All this in the wonderfully intimate setting of the Irving Studio Theatre where you will experience all the intricacies of the Hammond sound and the interplay of some superb musicians.

Tickets are £16.00 from the box office: 01242 572573 or on line: www.everymantheatre.org.uk
