PART OF THE SOUTHEND JAZZ FESTIVAL
The 2021 Southend Jazz Festival Launch Party is hosted by the Jazz Mix, Southend-on-Sea. It sees the return of local jazz funk-fusion band Sunchaser, led by local drummer Neil Robinson, a professional touring and recording artist for more than 20 years.
As well as once being a core member of the James Taylor Quartet he has performed alongside artists such as Tom Jones, Mica Paris and Tony Hadley to name but a few.
Neil is joined on stage for the evening by a superb band of local musicians featuring Zak Barrett on saxophone, Sam Edwards on keyboards, Andy Staples on bass, Graham Cuttill on percussion and Dave Ital on guitar.
