After last year's sellout show we have a great lineup joining us on 1st March in Worthing, Sussex.
The North's premiere western swing combo, Swing Commanders; Essex' original R&B great. Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones; Young piano maestro, Cody "Boogie Boy" Lee and his band and an exclusive from the USA, the honkin' sax of Detroit Gary Wiggins with the Paris Allstars. Gary spent many years playing with sax legends Big Jay McNeely and Arnett Cobb, what an education!
