The Red Stripe Band
3 Dec 2021
Starts at 7.30pm
Red Stripe has been stomping his boogie woogie rhythms now with the band for over 20 years and has played all over the world from Monte Carlo to Tokyo and New York to Milan. The band has a great time wherever it goes – infectious energy filling the venue with on and off stage antics!
Red Stripe (aka Neil Drinkwater) formed the band over 20 years ago and has worked with some lovely people over the years. The band plays all over the world at festivals, clubs and parties. They are asked back year after year to several jazz and blues festivals including Edinburgh, Derry, Umbria, Marlborough, Birmingham to name but a few. They have shared stages with Sting, Madonna, Van Morrison, Eddi Reader and Chris Barber.
They play boogie woogie music and also a good sprinkling of jump jive and rock‘n’roll and they have been described as ”The closest thing to Jools Holland and his big band”. If this gets your toes tapping you’re welcome to dance too!
“Red Stripe’s immediate rapport with the audience and quirky humour makes this show unmissable.” Stephen Fry
