The West Coast Octet


I co-front the West Coast Jazz Octet with the legendary jazz pianist Tommy Saville.

The octet is based in Nottingham. Our repertoire is based around the Dave Pell Octet Library together with a great many other numbers from the libraries of other great ensembles such as the Terry Waddell Octet, the  Marty Paich Octet and many others. Performing with our vocalist Miss Joanna Hudson we regularly appear in and around the Nottingham area.

The guys involved in the band are all outstanding jazz musicians, and regularly perform with other bands and combos around the Midlands and beyond.

The regular line up of the band is:

Tommy Saville – Piano
Les Shaw – Drums
Steve Truman – Bass
Pete Wiles - Guitar
Russ Buckberry – Trumpet
Kevin Holdgate – Trombone
John Marshall – Tenor Sax
Grant Warrender – Baritone Sax

Miss Joanna Hudson - Vocals

Have a listen to this outstanding combo….if you would like to book us then please contact me through the following link >>> Contact Me
