Please join us for this incredible line up in our clubhouse tent…the perfect, easy-going, Bank Holiday Sunday evening!
LINE UP – NOT TO BE MISSED!
We are hugely excited to welcome back to Loyton the exquisite saxophonist JAMES MORTON!
One of the most exciting sax players of his generation James has a unique lyrical and rhythmic style which allows him to directly ‘speak’ to his audience, conveying a strong sense of emotion that really connects with people; it makes him such a special player and much in demand!
James’ new album is due to be released in June. The title owes itself to James’ nickname, “The Kid”, which was earned after playing the clubs, venues and festivals in and around Southern England from the age of 12. As a teenager he was heavily influenced by the funk music of James Brown, hip-hop and jazz and it is these influences that he brings together on “The Kid”, making it an exciting, funky, soulful, gospel tinged album.
Tonight he is joined by a star band, driving some grooving funk beats for your delectation..
“I defy anybody not to have a good time when this band are playing, but these guys have the chops to convince more serious listeners too.” THE JAZZ MAN
RACHEL D’ARCY is the petite, punk Julie London of her generation. Fusing traditional jazz with hip hop, punk and serious attitude, the former jockey and self-taught ukulele player has garnered an international following thanks to her critically acclaimed performance on ITV crime drama ‘Endeavour’. Blessed with a unique Twin Peak resonance vocal, D’Arcy has most recently collaborated with nu-jazz ensemble The Cinematic Orchestra who invited her to join them on their Nov 2015 European Tour as a special guest. She is currently writing and recording for her debut album set for 2017 release.
Tonight at Loyton she is joined by ARTIE ZAITZ, described by Sam Smith’s piano player Reuben James as “the best guitarist in the world” and her cousin, world famous sculptor Marcus Vergette on double bass, for a ONE-OFF SHOWCASE of old, new and familiar tunes…
