Getting ready for some Groundation

Our artistic director, Gary Crosby takes his small band of current and alumni members of Tomorrow’s Warriors on the road for three shows in Sheffield, Southampton and Wolverhampton. It’s a great band so do try to see them if you can!

After working in Denys Baptiste’s 14-piece band on his powerful Now Is The Time…Let Freedom Ring! project, I’m taking some time out to work with my own comparatively small band, Groundation with the wonderful Nathaniel Facey (alto sax), Shirley Tetteh (guitar) and Moses Boyd (drums). I love this band! Everyone has a chance to express themselves and there’s a nice chilled vibe amongst us.

A few gigs coming up:

Fri 31 Jan | SHEFFIELD – Millennium Hall

Sun 02 Feb | SOUTHAMPTON – The Bent Brief 

Fri 14 Feb | WOLVERHAMPTON – Arena Theatre

Hope to see lots of new and familiar faces…
