Traditional Jazz at Wickham
Bishops Village Hall - Richard Leach's 7 Stars of Jazz

Richard Leach's 7 Stars of Jazz's style is reminiscent of the Alex Welsh Band, which, during the mid to late 1900's, was Britain's foremost Chicago/Dixieland style jazz band.

With an eclectic mix of Chicago, Swing and Dixieland plus a hint of Vaudeville, the band doesn't just play jazz it entertains the audience. It is impossible not to be swept along with the atmosphere.

This then is the basis of Richard Leach's 7 Stars of Jazz, not to be a direct "tribute" band to Alex Welsh but a band that plays with a similar energy and skill plus the ability to entertain an audience with a variety of musical styles.

Admission: ₤12.50 - Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start until 10.45pm performance.
