Simon Bates Quartet
October 8 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pmFREE + Raffle
Simon Bates first learnt the violin at school, but the draw of his father’s old clarinet was too much and he started having lessons. Simon took up the saxophone aged fourteen, getting his first paid gig in the same year. Simon is known for his stylistic versatility and instrumental prowess and his playing features on countless adverts, film scores, television shows, theme tunes and pop recordings. Simon has worked with many artists including Kylie Minogue, Jamie Cullum and Lulu amongst numerous others. He also runs a very successful big band and has been musical director for many singers including Rick Astley and Bette Midler and currently for Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong. This evening he is accompanied by Roy Hilton on piano, Godfrey Sheppard on bass and Milo Fell on drums.
