Art of Rhythm Tour - 26th May

Henry Newman, Janice Williamson...


On Thursday 26th May we have a major act at the Silvershine Jazz Club. Guitarist, Ant Law, and his band are playing here as part of their ‘Art Of Rhythm’ UK tour. Ant Law is a British Jazz guitarist who studied at the legendary Berklee College of Music before bursting onto the scene in 2013 with his album Entanglement.


His star has been on the rise since then and we at the Silvershine Jazz Club feel priveleged that he should choose our venue as a stop on his UK tour.


His truly outstanding band also features Matt Ridley on bass and Dave Hamblett on drums (below l&r):


Matt Ridley also came through in 2013 and soon established himself as one of the most versatile, creative and hard-working bass players in the UK. I've heard him described as a ‘monster bass player’ (in the nicest possible sense).


Completing the trio is Dave Hamblett on drums. Dave Hamblett is an exceedingly talented Royal Academician who is fast becoming one of the most talked about musicians on the UK creative music scene, combining his formidable skills as a first call drummer with a “growing reputation as a composer of powerful and original contemporary improvised music”.


This really will be one of the Silvershine gigs of the year.

Surfing the internet I came across this wonderful photograph ov Vic Evans, the Blue Notes vocalist. It's a truly wonderful shot that truly captures the Vic we know and love, and looks more like a photo-realist drawing than a photograph - A work of art!

The photographer, Paul Hassell, emailed us the photograph, kindly giving us permission to upload it to our website. You can see more of Paul’s work on his site at
