10-by-2 with Abigail Mahoney

Abigail’s love of jazz music came about when she began singing with the talented musicians at the King’s school in Grantham at their ’Jazz Nites’.

Her career as a singer has continued to flourish since; going on to duetting with her sister, Becca Faye, all over the country. She went on to graduating from The Oxford School of Drama as an actor, and continues to stretch her experience as a performer at every opportunity.

Supporting Abigail for this date are 10-by-2.

Steve Rodda plays guitar with Stray’s house band PRS. We first met Steve when he introduced us to his long time side man John Illingworth and their guitar duo Double Take at our jazz and tapas nights back in 2010. Massively talented, Steve has been part of the bigger lineup of Nottingham-based Decent Chaps, has played too many festivals to note and has an ongoing project called Trio Des Chordes, accompanied by Double Bass and Violin, playing Gypsy Jazz.

The second half of 10-by-2 is Stray’s co-owner Mat Short on bass guitars. Mat originally played saxophone under the tutelage of hardcore avant garde proponent Jan Kopinski, followed by jazz theory studies with Trumpeter Nathan Bray. When Mat’s father passed away back in 2015, Mat decided to play the Fender Jazz bass that was left behind by his late dad – he’s since sold his saxophone and has turned to the dark side. Influences are far and wide, from Ellington and Guy Barker, through to the studio work of Hidden Orchestra and of course, the svelte sounds of Steely Dan.

No tickets needed for this one, but it’s definitely worth reserving a table if you want to watch the musicians…
