Together, Alan Barnes and Dave O’Higgins have a long-standing dynamic musical chemistry that makes them ever-welcome at the Bonington and venues across the UK. Both played with their own bands in Jazz Steps’ first year – 1997.
Alan, a multi-reed master and witty raconteur between numbers – excels in his chameleon-like fluency across diverse genres, never ceasing to surprise and delight. Likewise, as band leader and sideman, Dave O’Higgins also has many albums to his credit.
Expect and rollicking evening of great jazz from this quintessential quintet fronted by two reed-players of distinction.
