With his own unique brand of mainstream to traditional to swing, charismatic leader Digby Fairweather brought his jazz trumpet and hard-working, award-winning Half Dozen to delight a capacity crowd at the Pallant Suite.
The versatile outfit played a range of material with Blues, Latin and original vocalisation often present. In two very full sets, ample opportunity was provided to illustrate the individual talents of the bandís members. Ever the showman, Digby took us through the 22 year-old bandís origins using anecdotes and stories to highlight their history.
A stunning night of real entertainment that thrilled a delighted audience!
