Simon Cunliffe-Lister and Ben Beattie’s After Midnight Band at the Burton Agnes Jazz And Blues Festival.

Simon is the organiser of the event. I think that really he just puts on what bands he enjoys and gives himself an opportunity to play with them! He has a great time.

For the finale he took his place in Ben’s band wearing a shirt that Ben quipped should have had a soundcheck of its own.

He’s not a bad sax player!!

Thanks Simon – you’ve got good taste in music! Much appreciated.

Pee Wee Ellis at the Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival.

Quite an honour to get to see Pee Wee. This is the guy who was musical director for both James Brown and Van Morrison! A legend. He didn’t disappoint. Even as the mist of the sea fret rolled in he warmed the night up with some cool funk.
