This fri at Brighton blue note, Hove actually we have the Elektrik Heas band with Rob Heasman playing his trumpet through a vast array of effects like wah wah n more, Terry Pack on electric bass guitar, Loz Thomas on drums and myself on guitar. Rob Heasman is an excellent local trumpeter who’ll be providing us with an exciting mix of bebop, funk and Latin infused jazz. Many of you will have seen him jamming at the Tuesday night Brunswick jazz jam sessions. Now here’s the chance to see him play from 11pm til late, with Brighton jazz school from 8pm. Doors 7pm with DJ spinning jazz classics, and it’s open until 4am. Free entry all night! Under the greenhouse effect, 63 church rd, Hove.
Rob started in a small jazz club in Brighton while doing a degree in music and has over the past 10 years developed a respectable reputation as a very talented, gifted musician with a varied range of music styles such as Jazz, Funk, Soul and modern mainstream music. He has a broad range of experience from session work with many well known bands, individuals, TV shows and adverts to success in various touring bands, the most recent being The Mummers. He has played and worked with an impressive list of people including Jools Holland, The show Stomp/Pandemonium, De La Soul, Amy Winehouse’s band, The Quantic Soul Orchestra.
We’ve been having great nights each Friday down there. Big thanks to Doug Ellingford who slaved away for months grafting, creating the place into a fabulous underground lair that is Brighton blue note, hove actually. It’s been great fun getting the opportunity to play my guitar with so many talented visiting jazz musicians!
