Press Release from St Nicolas Church, Pevensey
Concert by the Pasadena Roof Orchestra ‘Hot Five’ at St Nicolas, Pevensey

Following their sell-out concert in 2016, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra ‘Hot Five’ will be returning to St Nicolas, Pevensey at 7pm on Saturday 14 July.

They will play a selection of classic tunes from the 1920s and 1930s, together with Fats Waller favourites. Wine and soft drinks will be available during the interval and the concert will conclude at around 9pm.

The Hot Five line-up is the same one that entertained the Pevensey audience two years ago. John Arthy, who plays String Bass and Tuba, founded the world-famous Pasadena Roof Orchestra in 1969 and remained its leader until he retired from it in 1998.

Musical Director Keith Nichols (Piano and Vocals) formed the Midnite Follies Orchestra and teaches at the Royal Academy of Music. Sax and Clarinet player Trevor Whiting has worked with many big names in the jazz world, including Chris Barber and Clare Teal. Martin Wheatley, who plays Banjo and Guitar, started out playing blues and rock, but was converted to jazz by the music of Bix Beiderbecke.

Completing the line-up is trumpeter Andy Woon, whose musical journey began when he joined the Royal Artillery Band and Orchestra as a 16 year old, and who is much in demand on the jazz festival circuit.

Churchwarden Simon Sargent said “We are delighted that the Hot Five are returning to St Nicolas. Their concert here two years ago was a highlight of our 800th anniversary programme and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them back.”

Tickets cost £12.50, the same price as in 2016, and can be obtained from simonsargent@btinternet.com or purchased at the door on the night.
