The Matt Holborn Quartet (4th May 2016)

This group played The Cask on the first night of their tour.  They were in good humour and keen to perform their repertoire of gypsy jazz to a good-sized audience.

The band triumphantly achieved that insistent, bouncy swing, typical of the Hot Club recordings and were a pleasure to listen to.  Added to that, the passion, lyricism and sheer musical accomplishment of the lead instrumentalists made for a great evening.

Seven Pieces of Silver (2nd March 2016)

This fine band were on the penultimate gig of a thirteen date tour.  They played with such energy and verve that they could have been on their first engagement!

The core of their repertoire is the music of jazz giant Horace Silver.  Much of this has been arranged by their double bass playing leader, Paul Baxter.

The Firebird Quartet (17th February, 2016)

In their second appearance at The Cask, The Firebird Quartet showed much musical intelligence and a lot of appropriate fire. They played an interesting and varied repertoire with zest and skill and deserve national recognition.

The Shannon Reilly Trio (13th January 2016)

This group presents a complete package to the listener. With excellent musicianship, infectious swing and relaxed confidence, all laced together with humour, they give an enjoyable experience.

Shannon Reilly is a skillful singer who commands attention. Pat McCarthy is a guitarist whose technical ability is married to great sensitivity. Warren Jolly plays the double bass with dextrous skill and keeps solid time.
