On occasions we have guests join us. We think it’s only fair we document some of them.
Don’t get the impression we do live karaoke, and anyone can just turn up and sing. These guests come at our (sometimes groveling) invitation.
Chris – Trumpet
We have done a couple of gigs at the Electric Palace. Chris is a big wheel there so, keen to use any resource we could think of (and an unashamed bit of creeping), we asked him to play on a couple of songs. He was brilliant and has occasionally played with us at other venues when our paths have crossed.
He’s just a crazy jazz cat that loves to play.
Blowing his own horn
Chris’s roots are in Trad Jazz and is the driving force behind the Tendring Thunderbirds as well as the many Jazz nights at the Electric Palace. Getting Chris to play rock/pop songs is always interesting as it pushes him into a high orbit of free jazz.
