The Lace Market Theatre Trust were looking for a Nottingham jazz trio with jazz singer for a private function and hired the Northside Trio to provide the evenings background music.
This is a lovely little independent theatre in the centre of Nottingham which recently celebrated its 40th year in their Nottingham Lace Market premises. The Theatre Trust held a Cabaret themed celebration and invited The Northside Trio to provide an evening of background entertainment.
As the Trust were looking for background music, the band recommended a jazz trio with jazz singer, guitarist and double bass. The band played two 45 minute sets and played 1930’s tunes appropriate to the Cabaret theme. In the interval, all were treated to the Trust’s own Cabaret comped by their very own ‘Emcee’!
The Jazz Trio are all keen supporters of independent theatre, Al and Rowan have regularly played in ‘the pit’ for theatre shows such as Oliver!, the Full Monty, Grease and Blood Brothers while Claire has been active as a ‘leading lady’ playing Velma Kelly in Chicago and Ado Annie in Oklahoma.
1920’s and 30’s theatre feeds massively into the repertoire of every jazz band and many of the tunes on the night such as A Fine Romance and I Get a Kick out of You were selections from the finest musicals of the last century. Its great to see an independent theatre thriving for 40+ years in the centre of Nottingham!
Here’s a video selection from the Jazz Trio’s second set:
And here’s what the customer said:
The Northside Trio were excellent, our guests all enjoyed their music, which fitted in perfectly with our Cabaret event. I’d definitely recommend them. (Michelle, Membership Secretary, Lace Market Theatre)
