TOM OLLENDORF TRIO (Wales) - 23rd October


Tom Ollendorf

This Thursday we have a trio of young up-and-coming musicians from Wales who have come together to form the Tom Ollendorf Trio.


The Tom Ollendorff trio feature Pete Komor on Bass, Rod Oughton on drums and, of course, Tom Ollendorff on guitar. They play a mix of original material and arrangements of contemporary and standard jazz material. All are all currently studying at the Royal Welsh College of Music in Cardiff, and are branching out into the great wide world of gigging. At the Silvershine Jazz Club we like to give opportunities to talent on the way up and Tom Ollenfdorf really does fit that bill.

Reuben James

The rise of Reuben James has been something to watch.
We first saw him at the Bearwood Corks as a young prodigy playing in The Notebenders Big Band. He has since gone on to enthral the Silvershine audience in his own trio and in the amazing London based outfit Kansas Smitty’s


More recently though he has gone on to work with Ruby Turner, headline Ronnie Scott’s, and record and tour with UK and US chart topper Sam Smith. In 2012 The Times described him as ‘Fast becoming Britain's best young Jazz Pianist’....

Kansas Smitty's

Kansas Smitty's
Remember Kansas Smitty’s and the two fabulous gigs they played at the Silvershine Jazz Club. We hope to get them back as soon as we can, but in the meantime we have a single they cut recently on sale for £5. It’s two fabulous tracks of stunningly crazy Jazz, so if you’re like me and you like your vinyl then you’ll love this!
