After another terrific night at The Amersham this week courtesy of the Jensen / Ehwald duo we are all rather looking forward to seeing The Chris Allard Band take the stage next Tuesday – with a line-up of familiar heavyweights from the London scene this is surely not one to miss!
The Chris Allard Band
“Great playing...beautiful...a real guitar player” – Pat Martino
Chris is regarded as one of the UK's finest contemporary jazz guitarists/composers, and is the first choice of many top artists. He has performed and recorded with Jacqui Dankworth, Steve Waterman, the BBC Big Band and Jamie Cullum, amongst others. The Chris Allard Band has performed all over the UK and in Europe, including the International Guitar Festival and Ronnie Scott’s, and had radio-play as far afield as Los Angeles and Portugal, with their last album received critical acclaim including four stars in Guitarist. Currently performing material from new album Jupiter Island expect sparks to fly!
“Full-blooded solos...right on the money” – Jazzwise
“One of the great guitarists in this country” – Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
