The city’s summer event schedule is packing out nicely
The Ocean City Blues N Jazz Festival is returning for its third year, it’s been announced,
Music fans will be able to soak up the musical vibes on The Barbican from August 10 to 12, this year.
Acts for the event are yet to be announced.
Last year‘s event was opened by Pete Canter Quartet at noon on Friday– a fine tenor saxophonist and composer with a turbo-charged rhythm section.
Bands like the The Rumblestrutters, Roger Marks Brass Farthing, The Blow Up and Magnolia Jazz Band also featured in the lineup.
The Sultans, a six-piece band, offered an exciting mix of danceable music, including swing, jump jive, latin, rockabilly and rock’n’roll, with additional swing treatments of pop and rock songs.
Jack Cookson also appeared – a multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter from Plymouth, whose distinct style combines his deeply articulate lyrics with memorable melodic hooks and intricate, fingerstyle guitar arrangements, influenced by roots music from both sides of the Atlantic.
