We are delighted to welcome this exciting new Jazz collaboration of Pete Allen ~ Roger Marks Elite Jazzmen
to The Gateway on Saturday 21st October 2017 an evening of superb world class Jazz music for all to enjoy.
Pete Allen has been regarded as one of Europe’s most talented and exciting masters of the clarinet since forming his own band in 1978. Credits include many TV appearances and being chosen to lead the Worldwide All Stars in Sacramento as well as featuring in the Philips International All Stars in Holland and the European Top Eight Jazz Band in Germany.
Roger Marks has been described on BBC radio by Humphrey Lyttelton as world class – a view shared by prominent magazine critics alike . He has led his Armada and Cornish Armada Jazz Bands since 1980 and has recorded with Bruce Turner, Duncan Swift, Rod Mason, Julian Marc Stringle and of course Pete Allen.
Pete and Roger have remained best friends for forty years since turning professional together with the Rod Mason Band in 1976.
Joining forces to form their Elite Jazzmen is the culmination of a long time desire to work together again to produce an exciting band of the highest class, deserving of headline billing and comprising some of the very best musicians available in Great Britain today – such as Sean Moyses, Andy Dickens, Dave Hanratty and Richie Bryant.
