Gig Preview: Pat McCarthy at Grimsby Jazz, December 7th
Gill Wilde and the team at Grimsby Jazz are gearing up to host the final gig of their season on December 7th featuring one of the area's best loved musicians.
Guitarist Pat McCarthy has strong links to Grimsby Jazz with a busy gig schedule in the North. He is a firm favourite with the club's audience and so it's fitting that he'll be performing on this special, festive gig.
He is joined by his regular band - drummer John Perry and bassist Warren Jolly. But that's not all; Pat has also invited some special guests to join him. Vocalist Shannon Reilly will sing with the group (Shannon and Pat work together often and are featured on this year's Northern Line artist roster), trumpeter Thom Whitworth will be there too and the multi-talented Canadian musician Piero Tucci will also add to the fun, playing saxophone, accordian and piano.
To fit all of this in, the event will start earlier than the usual Grimsby Jazz gigs and will be three sets rather than two. Music starts from 8pm and tickets cost £14 on the door.
