In the tradition of Alan’s other collaborations with writers, expect wonderful tunes, expertly arranged, superb soloists, humour and emotion.
At least half of the band - dynamic trombonist Dennis Rollins, contrasting saxists Robert Fowler and Dean Masser and guitarist Pat McCarthy - will be appearing at The Hive for the first time. This should be a unique and entertaining experience.
