PRS - 18/3/22 - Stamford

P.R.S. are Stray’s House band. Si Potts heads up the band, as an ex-session drummer for the BBC among his man accolades. Si has a lyrical style and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the tune while he solos – no, he really is that good.

Steve Rodda plays guitar. Having been signed to various labels in the mid 80’s, Steve got a ‘proper jab’, but never stopped playing. He’s been key in several outfits, both mainstream, as well as part of the hugely successful gypsy jazz guitar duo Double Take.

Mat Short owns and runs Stray’s Coffee. He’s also a developing bassist, originally playing sax for over a decade under the expert supervision of saxophone giant Jan Kopinski, as well as a stint honing his musical theory with trumpeter Nathan Bray.

The boyz have been honing their sound for over 6 years now and finally put together an album at Mount Street Studios in Nottingham, a day before the November 2020 Lockdown. The result was a collection of 14 tracks, put together in a live setting, all first takes. It’s just how they work best.

Together PRS bring fun and excitement to live jazz. Every time they play a tune, it sounds different! Partly because they’re too old and tired to rehearse, but mainly because they know the magic that emerges when you genuinely improvise ‘on the fly’. So, this date will be a a selection of their favourite tunes, called at random and worked out, pretty much there and then. The true essence of live jazz…

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…
