Neil Hunter - Newark - 4/2/22
Neil Hunter studied classical piano and organ at Newcastle Cathedral and since the 1980s has focused on jazz, Latin, fusion and related genres. His range of styles makes him an eclectic and dynamic addition to any jazz group.
Neil built his formidable reputation as a sideman alongside artists such as Tony Kofi and Sonny Bradshaw, working at venues throughout Europe and playing on sessions for UK and US labels.
We first saw Neil play at Stray’s in Newark, back in 2003, with Ian Beestin (drums) and Geoff Pearson (bass) and were blown away. This is only the second time PRS have played with Neil, so the music will be called on the night and improvised all the way!
FRIDAY NIGHT JAZZ SESSIONS AT STRAY’S ARE SPONSORED BY PRIMEPRINT…
HOW IT WORKS:
Doors open at 7:30pm and food is available to order from this time, until 9:00pm. Seats are unallocated, so get in early if you have specific requirements – please note, we always give priority to elderly, single and customers with disabilities.
We want you to have a great night with us! However, one man’s boogie is another man’s dirge, so we operate a minimal talking policy during the performances. We ask you to consider your neighbours in this respect.
We offer incentives to buy tickets on the night, to forthcoming gigs and recommend buying these in the interval, to save you waiting at the end of the night.
Lastly, from the staff at Stray’s and the house band, we look forward to seeing you and sharing some fabulous jazz with you…
