Society are among those bringing music to The Stables this week

RICK Braun and Richard Elliot, that’s them look sax-y below, will be spreading their energetic jazz stylings at The Stables this evening, and tomorrow night The Searchers come to play with classic tracks like Sweets For My Sweet and Don’t Throw Your Love Away.

The fact-fiends among you can store this one away too: the band has achieved record sales in excess of 40 million.

Also tomorrow, over on Stage2, Jinder, Marcus Bonfanti and Lotte Mullan will show that new talent is still ripe.

A Ukulele Workshop will run on Saturday.

The beginners session runs between 10am and 3pm, and you need to pre-book.

Think Floyd do the tribute thing on Saturday night in the Jim Marshall auditorium, while in Stage 2, country-rock troupe Society wrap up a UK tour at the Wavendon venue.

The debut release, Songs From The Brickhouse, gives more than a little nod to their love of all things West Coast, but they have more on the way, and this date will be one of the first times that the trio have performed tracks from their new album in the live setting.

Tune up and head to Voice Skills: The Studio with Lisa Fitzgibbon on Sunday morning, or go celebrate the music of Phil Collins with the tribute No Jacket Required in the evening, from 8pm.

A couple of truly special nights are waiting to roll on Tuesday and Wednesday with the arrival of a real music legend.

Jack Bruce was a founding member of the hugely influential psychedelic rock trio Cream, which is enough to give him high status on its own.

But multi-instrumentalist Jack has also worked with a list of other bands that is as long as your arm, including, but not confined to, Blues Incorporated, John Mayall, Ringo Starr and BBM.

You could write a book on his musical exploits (and he did, check out Composing Himself, penned with Harry Shapiro), but all we have time for is to tell you to go hook a ticket for one of the shows, which see him performing with The Ronnie Scott’s Blues Experience.

It’ll be stunning.

Get tickets, quickly, on MK 280800.
