Dave O’Higgins Quartet: Jazz on The Pantiles

Thursday 30th June 2022

This week we welcome the Dave O’Higgins Quartet to the bandstand. Dave O’Higgins is an English jazz saxophonist, composer, arranger, educator and latterly recording engineer and producer. Born in Birmingham, Dave first emerged on the British jazz scene in the 1980s.

Dave and his quartet will perform music with some familiar standards, reharmonised and retitled, but recognisable as blues, bebop and swing from the fifties and sixties onwards.

Jazz on The Pantiles

Jazz on The Pantiles takes place on the bandstand in the centre of The Pantiles every Thursday night from 7pm to 10pm throughout the summer months, starting from 5th May and continuing through until September 2022.
