Sunday 10/07/16 Little Rumba

Without doubt one of the most popular bands to play at the Queens. You may have heard them before but they never cease to amaze!!!
If you can you imagine songs from an island populated by Jewish Argentinean Celts, stuck in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, reached only by radio stations from New Orleans, Cuba and Jamaica - then you’re ready for Little Rumba - a great world music band www.littlerumba.com

'On the button' four piece with contemporary upbeat party tunes. Always gets the audience up and dancing, so make it an energetic summer's evening!

***** Jazz Special *****

A new venture for Philip Clouts as he combines his accomplished compositional style, steeped both in the music of his native South Africa and in a diverse range of world musics which he has explored to critical acclaim, with a group of Wales finest players.

"Luxurious melodies, woven with subtle influences from Clouts' forays into world music ... a joy throughout, uplifting and contemplative by turns" Jazz UK

Mr Chris Mayfield, the 'strong deliverer' of gritty country and urban blues. Superb guitar playing from the killing floors of Lydney meatpackers to the cotton fields of Newnham.

 

Wednesday 27/07/16 Coltrane Dedication

***** Jazz Special *****

Up for another evening of extempory, full-on improvisation from the power quintet that takes the later tunes of Mr John Coltrane and continues on the journey that starts in many places and never finishes; meeting the intricacies of life on the way! A band that sits on the shoulders of one of THE great musicians of the 20th century, a composer of outstanding strength in his simplicity, and a true master of his instrument - always searching, never content, and a man on a mission to make the world a better place.
Coltrane Dedication has followed the mission with an impressive collective of like minded players - on this occasion we have Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen (Saxes), Ashley John Long (Bass), Ian Poole (Drums), Dave Jones (Piano). Supported by Music in Monmouth Deicated to SFM

Wednesday 2/11/16 Hans Peter Hiby Trio

***** Jazz Special *****

Hans Peter Hiby first encountered British drummer Paul Hession in the Winter of 1986 when they started playing together as a duo in Hiby's home-town of Wuppertal. Having grown up and spending much of his childhood with Caspar Brötzmann, Hiby has deep roots within the Wuppertaler free jazz community. At which point we feel duty bound to declare:!!!WARNING!!! this gig carriers a Placktone Club Health Warning Performance liable to produce catharsis and other simliar challenges

Hiby/Hession has played throughout Germany as well as surrounding countries and on occasions augmented the duo with bass players Marcio Mattos, Roberto Bellatalla and Peter Kowald. The duo has now evolved into the new trio with double bass player Dieter Manderscheid, who is known for his work with Gerd Dudek, Frank Gratkowski and Gerry Hemingway.
