Lunchtime Special: Greg Davis with special guest Denia Ridley
Sunday 5th January 2020 - 1:30 pm
Music Charge: £10.00
An engagingly melodic saxophone player in the classic mainstream style, Greg Davis first started performing in the 1980's and by 1992 was leading and playing in the London Waldorf Hotel’s orchestra, a chair he held for 10 years. In addition, from the late 80’s Greg also led the band Henry’s Pencil which delighted London for over twenty years and held for some time the attendance record at the famous 100 Club in Oxford Street. A stalwart of the French Riviera (that's Greg's description, not mine…) Greg has performed at the Cannes Film Festival for the last twelve years. Today Greg will be appearing with Paul Eldridge-piano, Sandy Burnett-bass and their Special Guest - vocalist Denia Ridley. Originally from Austin, Texas, Denia has been resident in France for several years now. A terrific singer of the classic American Songbook we are excited to have her appear for us this Sunday lunch time. Greg tells me the band will be "playing and singing some of the marvellous known and lesser known standards along with some gorgeous bossa-nova". A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
