Nigel Beer

When Bearwood based Nigel Beer turned up with his trumpet completely out of the blue on one of our Jam Nights we were so impressed that we immediately invited him back. He returns again on Thursday 25th June to play with The Blue Notes. Expect some great Jazz from a great local musician.


Nigel Beer studied jazz at Salford University, gaining an MA in performance during his studies there, together with the James Morrison award for Post-Graduate Jazz Performance. During his studies Nigel received tuition from jazz legend Bobby Shew, among others. Since then Nigel has played professionally in many different Jazz contexts, including TV and recorded appearances, but more recently in a small group setting with his own quintet at UK Jazz festivals. His performances feature his own compositions and his unique approach to jazz trumpet playing.





Line up for this gig is:

  • Nigel Beer Trumpet
  • Ashley Allen Keyboards
  • Trevor Lines Bass
  • Massimo Natulla Drums 
  • Paul Foad Guitar

Not a full Blue Notes line up, but should be good. As far as I know it's a first time for Ashley Allen is a first timer at the Silvershine Jazz Club, though he's played with some of the best jazzers in the region.

Great night, great music and great dancers taking the floor to show how big band swing should be enjoyed. The Basement Band at the Silvershine Jazz Club.
