KENNY Ball & His Jazzmen will descend on The Stables this evening for some trad jazz matters – a mere 50 years on since they first hit the charts, with Samantha.

What a cracking name for a song...

A couple of weeks back he was at the venue soaking up the work of Jack Bruce, but tomorrow night Bernie Marsden will deliver the goods himself, when he presents a show paying homage to Rory Gallagher.

His gigs in 2010 alongside Motorhead and guitarist Joe Bonamassa went down well too...

Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a soul revue and a half, bursting forth with the tunes you love, from Reach Out I’ll Be There to Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone.

You know what is on the menu at this show, but by ‘eck is it tasty.

Speaking of tasty sounds, guitarist prodigy Oli Brown makes his comeback on Tuesday night.

Blending the blues with funk, jazz and rock, the chap is truly engaging, as you can hear on his most recent album Heads I Win Tails You Lose, which saw him rope in the production values of Mike Vernon, famed for his work with Clapton and Fleetwood Mac.

Oh yeah, Oli has got it going on. and not even a recent hairline fracture of his pelvis is going to stop him from widdling, he promised.

Wednesday night presents The Great British Barbershop Boys making their first appearance in Wavendon, while Stage 2 hosts Irish singer-songwriter Odi, who issues her debut album Maslow’s Songbook this June.
