    Tony is accompanied by regulars Jim Barry (piano) and Sue Greenway (saxophone). Special guest is the lovely Louise Cookman – a wonderful singer who is described as having ‘a voice to die for!’ Also in the line-up are three fantastic musicians – Paul Morgan on double-bass, Len Walker on guitar and drumming sensation Steve Rushton!

    A wonderful heady cocktail of songs and music – a must-see show for all music-lovers – young and old.  Admission is £15 on the door - strictly by prior reservation only
