Ben Thomas Quartet
featuring Jim Blomfield - 23rd November


Here at the Silvershine Jazz club we are delighted and proud to announce that we have a top trumpet player coming across from Cardiff this coming Thursday. Ben Thomas is a truly expressive and lyrical, critically acclaimed trumpeter. His Quartet will be showcasing original compositions by Ben and acclaimed pianist Jim Blomfield. This performance also features double bassist Pasquale Votino and drummer Paolo Adamo.


Ben has a wealth of experience performing on stage, TV and radio. He has played the major jazz festivals and has a couple of albums to his name.


This is another first for the Silvershine Jazz Club.

Farewell    Captain

Derek Wilson

Following the funeral we received the following comment on Facebook from Captain's sister.


“Thank you for your kind words and a huge thank you to Ray and all the musicians, apologies I can't remember all your names, that made yesterday so special. Thank you so muchXx

Thankyou Treica.

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
