FRIDAY 8.00pm Jade-Lori Crompton
Catch one of our favourite singers as she returns for the early Jazz show as  she once again makes a splash with the sultry and bluesey tones reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and Sarah Vaughan. Jade–Lori Crompton, daughter of Stax recording artist C L Blast's (known for his work on songs such as; Buster Brown's "Fannie Mae"; Don Gardner/Dee Dee Ford's "I Need Your Lovin'", Gladys Knight's "You Broke Your Promise" and the (fantastic) "Valerie" by Jackie & The Starlites). Her voice is said to be coloured by heartfelt Gospel tones, syrup smooth R&B, and playful melodies reminiscent of childhood Jazz influences. Simon Jeans (guitar), Graham Wood (piano), Pete Jeavons (bass) and Chris Tarr (drums). Click here for tickets
