THE next Jazz At The Orange session in Yatton will feature a popular band.

Plymouth-based Roger Mark’s Cornish Armada will take to the stage at The Prince of Orange Inn, in High Street, at 8pm on November 17.

The band, formed by Roger Marks a couple of years ago, comprises, as the name suggests, several musicians based in Cornwall and their early success was indeed playing in Cornish venues.

Since those early days, the band has become very popular further afield and was very well received at the Upton-on-Severn Jazz festival.

Roger, a unique melodic trombone stylist, is equally at home in all genres of jazz.

His versatility makes him a natural selection for festival all-star line-ups and as a guest artist with many bands.

Graham Trevarton, from deepest Cornwall on cornet and trumpet, adds a real Cornish flavour to the band with his vocals and the front-line is completed by the very experienced clarinettist Gordon Stafford, who retired to Newlyn several years ago.

The rhythm section comprises tenor banjo virtuoso Malc Hurrell and two more musicians based in Cornwall, Adrian Davis on sousaphone and Andrew Marks on drums.

Tickets, priced £7.50, are available from George Giles on 01934 527197 or for £8.50 on the door, if available.
